A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

Temptations. Ain't to proud to beg.

by Contemplative on March 21, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Felt down and exhausted of all resources. Had temptations to engage in self-harm. Instead, reached out and pleaded to physicians and friends. Helped.

Writing helped. So out of curiosity, I Googled Temptations and their playlist and found this perfect title match for my emotions! Reminded self, asking for help is a strength.
