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.

Hoping he changes his mind soon.

After coming out to my dad as trans, he was very accepting, then slowly slid into the denial and not even tolerating it. My little sister refuses to call me her sister instead of her brother because that's who I am, therefore aggravating our father, to the point where the other day he finally said "I do not have a son, only 3 daughters. And that's all I will ever have."

So I'm hoping that changes soon
