Become An Empty Shell Of A Person In 9 Easy Steps

It’s that time again when we reflect on the past year and look ahead to the next 12 months. We decide what kind of person we want to be, how we want things to change, and where we want to be this time next year. It can be bittersweet, a bend of what is, what could have been, and what could be.

If you’re struggling to come up with a compelling vision, you’re not alone!

Have you considered becoming an empty shell of a person?

Here’s how to do it in 9 easy steps.

  1. Sacrifice your needs, wants, feelings, and worth on behalf of other people. Do this for your partner, your family, your clients. Do it consistently over months and years until you run out of dignity and self-respect.

  2. Lash out in reactivity when something hits too close to home. Take things personally. Consider everything around you a threat rather than an opportunity. Keep your body on the rollercoaster of chronic stress.

  3. Make decisions based on fear and pain rather than vision and possibility. Allow yourself and your world to shrink. Hope that things get better on their own and work themselves out in your favor.

  4. Doubt yourself daily. Put yourself in situations that reinforce failure, highlight your inadequacies, and undermine your sense of self. Don’t give yourself an experience of capability or sufficiency.

  5. Risk nothing. Settle for what’s comfortable.

  6. Get hooked on chemical dependencies to help you sleep, think, cope, move, talk, live.

  7. Wear down your internal reserves through continuous halfway engagement with life. Never give yourself a real break. Never give yourself fully to any real effort. Live somewhere in between. Burn out and walk away from the things that matter most. Beat yourself up. Overcommit to something new. Repeat the cycle compulsively.

  8. Let yourself be in pain long enough that you forget what it’s like to NOT hurt.

  9. Slap together a Frankenstein approach to dealing with #1-8 based on Google searches and bits and pieces of things you’ve dabbled in over the years. Certainly don’t commit to any unified framework. Overthink and overcomplicate things. Guilt-trip yourself when you can’t figure it out on your own.

There you have it!

Keep these simple steps somewhere handy, practice daily, and you’ll be a shell of a person in no time.
