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.

I don't think I deserve this.

I am a person that is always bending over backwards for people because I feel like it is the right thing to do. This usually isn't a problem, until it is. The thing I don't understand about some people is how they could ask people like me to do things for them all the time, and then turn and completely act horribly to me once I do it. How can you see nothing wrong with that? That's really how you are? I should have known better.
