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.

She gave me tenacity and codependance.

I am 46 years old. I always knew that my ability to keep getting up, starting over, doing it again and again came form her.
I just figured out that my codependency issues also came from her.
I fought to be nothing like her.
I am exactly like her.
I'm ok with that.
