A shame spiral characterizes the loss of self-control over something that makes one feel worthless and pathetic. Due to these feelings of low self-worth and guilt, the action that triggered the shame spiral is repeated and the degradation of one's self continues. It is a cycle that repeats itself, bringing one down further as it repeats. Example triggers for shame spirals could be excesses of junk food, alcohol, meaningless sex, buying unnecessary gifts for oneself and the like.

This egocentric wonderland is a museum of six-packs, bulging biceps, boobs, ass, oversized televisions, cars, girlfriends, boyfriends, one night stands, houses, and all together a series of "I'm better than you" road signs. The signs are often strangely appealing and offensive at the same time. Beware of douchetop it's a path of greatly inflated self-worth and a precocious ability to be unaware of other people's problems. While these things on the surface seem appealing... It often results in the person not being cool after all. The douchebag's greatest desire from the start.
