I Try to Be a Good Person

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 443 People

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.
