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.

At least I believe in myself

by LetTheWolfin on July 15, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

When all else fails, if you stop believing in yourself, you're truly screwed. If you aren't cheering for your own team, who will? We are all like glorious flames, and sometimes, when we're flickering low and almost sputtering out, we just need someone else's pilot light to give us a little boost and then our flame can grow higher again. Oh, and good to remember that if your bright light shining gets in someone's eyes and they try to extinguish it, they're someone who doesn't deserve your warmth!
