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 and on SmithTeens. Read more about six.

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

SIX WORD » ADVICE

One day you'll get over it.

Not much to this one. I've had it said to me and I've said it to myself and my friends. Whenever someone experiences loss, failure, or heartbreak, that's what people say. It sounds harsh, but it's true. I never want to believe it was true; I don't think anyone does. But the sooner you accept that you can and will move on, if not now than in the future, the easier it is to let whatever it is go.
