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.

Feeling much older than just 19.

Not only because I'm almost always in pain, but because whenever someone around my age is disrespectful to an authority figure I cringe at the fact that they think that's okay, and I also kinda want to tell them to not do that until I realize that they're the same age as me and it won't do any good. I keep forgetting I don't work in a preschool anymore where almost all the kids are great and the ones that aren't can be corrected.
