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.

Is she doomed to repeat everything?

by TheUnknownComic on April 15, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

My oldest daughter and myself are very similar in personality, she trades fits of rage for fits of depression but all in all very much a mini-me. Now at about the same age that I moved away from my best friend, her best friend is moving. She has very few friends, as I did, but the ones she has are meaningful.

At this age, I became a loner. I didn't really make meaningful friendships; I despised everyone I went to school with in my new area. I really hope she stops following my path soon. She doesn't deserve to sit at the lunch table with the social rejects that speak Klingon.
