avoiding 1st person
and personal pronouns
is one habit
that helps

instead
substitute
an article:
“a” or “the”
works fine

or just
eliminate
the subject
altogether -
most can
figure it out

and never use
possessives
no matter
what

makes it easier
not to
have to
own
or
admit
any kind
of connection

also tends
to minimize
and hide the
personal side
of events
and feelings
and relationships

makes
disappearing
easier

if there is
no subject
and “I”
was not there
then nothing
could have happened

- right?
