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.

Man cannot make you a woman.

by emily.m.331 on October 8, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Having a significant other is great, but it does not define who you are. It does not make you more or less of a woman.
Having sex is great, but losing your virginity does not define who you are. The concept of virginity is stupid; by referring to this concept, we are suggesting that a man can take something ethereal from a woman and change something significant about her.
A man cannot make you any more or any less of a woman. You are a woman because of the choices you make and the path you choose to follow. It is wonderful to have a man in your life for either of these reasons, but please do not let that define you. You shouldn't be defined as a woman because of these things, these things should come about because you are strong, because you are a woman.
