I Try to Be a Good Person

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 660 People

    I do the best I can to be good to people.

    I try to make everyone's day just a tiny bit better. I want the people around me to be happy. I unconditionally want this for them and will do everything I can to pull their spirits up. I want nothing in return, just to know they are happy and that they feel good about...

    Always!!

    I will always be a good person regardless of what others do.  This world is becoming harder for some to keep being a good person.  The people in it sometimes don't help.  This is why you should surround yourself with others who want to be a good person as well...

    I Really Want People To Think I Am A Good Person.

    I just wanted to write on this topic because I believe it is so important to have a good morale. Since I was a little girl my dad always told me to do the best that I can in everything that I do. I have tried so hard to do that in every aspect of my life. I think this is one of...

    At least I'll say I try.

    It's waaaaay to easy to slip to the dark side sometimes. There are times I screw up without even trying. I'll even try to good and suddenly, surprise, I did bad anyway. I'm not racist, sexist, or favoritist. I typically judge people by their character and intentions rather...

    A Good Person

    I try to be a good person, I try to give everyone the benifit of the doubt. Even when I think or feel that they are lying. I would do anything for my family or friends. The problem there is that I usually wind up with the short end of the stick. You do for people, help them in...

    But lets face it, I'm not always a good person,

    lately I've noticed my humor has turned a little "Evil" or at least dark...the reason I'm posting this is because when I check people's profiles and they have "do you think I'm attractive" as one of there groups and they've posted a pic of themselves...we're talking age group 18...

    When Push Comes To Shove

    It has been like a game of tug o' war.  With my son as the centre,  That scarf tied in the middle of the rope,  Getting pulled here and there.  He is not a scarf.  He is not meant to be used in any game. He is only a boy whose heart is torn between two different sides. I...

    I do not always succeeded

    and who does? To be good is not to be boring, as most people think it is, but instead it is to do the right thing as far as it can be known and that takes real courage. It doesn't mean you agree with everybody all the time about everything, that is appeasement, not goodness. So...

    Some days I try harder

    than others. Some nights I wonder why I bother. The definition of what it means to be "good" varies.. And religion has nothing to do with goodness at all.

    But when I see someone else

    who seems so perfect, I can't help but feel self-conscious about all the dark thoughts in my head. Do they look at me and see a bad person? Sometimes I see myself as one.

    Of course. Always. Why not?

    Since this is internet and you can do whatever you like as "anon" doesn't mean you can be a jackass. You know what conscientiousness means right? Morals and ethics apply, everywhere. Be a good person.

    I think the important thing is their personality. Good looks are just a bonus. And some people I've liked may not be the best looking people, but I liked their personalities.
