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.

Rule ONE- Love does not hurt.

by TigerROS on December 6, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Heard this from Oprah while trying to extricate myself from a horrible relationship.

Lover,parent, friend, spouse, child - no matter who you are, or what the dynamic, LOVE does not hurt.

We may get our hearts broken, or be disappointed, but LOVE does not HURT.

It should not hurt our bodies,our selves,our souls, or our minds.

So simple, and so true.

LOVE - true,unconditional,romantic,platonic,familial - DOES NOT HURT.
