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.

Hate feeling relieved over ending love.

by _Miracle on September 4, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I could give you my side and make sure that you agree but that would miss the point, completely.
It’s not really the end of love, just the end of a relationship as it has been and coming to the realization that it is likely to be permanent. A decision contemplated on for over a decade, thought deeply on for almost exactly a year now and coming to fruition yesterday.
A decades long “best-friendship” that hasn’t been for a long time.
I’m doneā€¦
No more cosignatories of bullshit leases on de-nile.
