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.

Mom found I'm bisexual. Bad idea.

I told my mother I was bisexual after three years of her not knowing. She threatened to disown me and kick me out of the house. My grandmother would not allow it. She thinks it's just a stage but I've felt this way for quite some time. :/
