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.

Not my mom, please stop trying.

My dad's fiance has taken up being my parent recently. Telling me I'm not trying hard enough to get a job, telling me that life really isn't that hard, telling me that I can't go somewhere because I'm sick, telling me to get my "authority problem" in check, etc.
My dad hasn't even spoken to me since my sister went back home, and when she's not here it's like I don't exist.
I'm fine with them being together, doesn't really bother me like it probably should, but please just leave me alone and quit trying to be my mom when you can't even control your own kid.
