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.

Step-family doesn't know he ever existed.

by BecomingLuke on October 16, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I've come to the discovery that my father hasn't told my step-mom or her daughter about my brother, and they've been together for over 2 years now. So therefore she doesn't know why I hate having my birthday recognized, or why I try and hide during holidays. She just thinks that it's because I don't like how the family sees me.
I wish he would tell her, because if I do I'll only get in trouble.
