Total honesty, with yourself and everyone else.
Yes I do.

In terms of going out of my way to help people, be uplifting, remember all I meet as
individual and worthy people. Yes.

Lately I am being told I am evil simply because of my politics so I am in doubt.
There is a proverb that says doubt is an evil.

I know better. The flaws are inescapable and I am without an excuse, because I have actually bothered to attempt to reason this one through. It’s about “success” and particularly the amassing of material excesses while aware of the implications.
How much is enough?

I try to be

I’m a person. :)

I help a lot of people and animals with no regard to cost, social status or what anyone thinks.

On the other hand once I stop being kind or you rip me off or hurt a kid or animal, I turn ruthless.

The people behind me almost killed their puppy a few weeks ago. Leaving him in record heat with no shelter, water he knocked over, and a huge chain he got tangled up in. He had it wrapped around his neck so tight we barely saved him.
I personally talked to them 3x nicely, the last she cussed me out. So one day the next week the dog disappeared never to be seen again-in this town.

So yeah, I’m just a person. Good is a subjective opinion.

One of the best.

I’m usually neutral. I pick my battles, and keep to myself. I take cabs wherever I go outside.

I think most people are good.
I know I’m good because my intentions are good/neutral.

If I’m in some situation where I’m able to take advantage of you, I’m not going to because I simply don’t feel the need to.
I have stuff of my own, so I don’t need to take from others.

My ego is in check, so I don’t care about being insulted or defending my honor or reputation because I already know if someone felt the need to attack me, if would be from their own perceived issues in their own head.

I just don’t have any reason to enter into conflict with anyone I guess.

smudges's avatar

Yes, I believe I am.

and on that note, let me just say: YOU GO @KNOWITALL!!! you’re my hero!!!

@smudges It was on the back side of MY fence dying, like 7 month old white pibble boy.
They had no hope against 4 homegirls on a rescue. Ha!

^^ awwwww {{hugs}} May the universe bless you!

cookieman's avatar

I try to be and I’m confident I’m not an evil person so…close enough.

RayaHope's avatar

I feel like a kitten among wolves sometimes, but I want to be good and help others whenever I can. I don’t even like swear words or saying bad things about anyone. I know I’m far from perfect but I do keep trying to do right.

SnipSnip's avatar

I see myself as someone who tries to live in the positive lane in the life trip. I stray sometimes.

janbb's avatar

I think it’s more significant whether other people see me as a good person than what I deem myself.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

Nope. I’m a piece of work. But at least I’ll admit it. “We are as God made us, and oft times a good deal worse”. Anonymous

OFF COURSE I do- I’m one bitchin’-ass dude!

If you doubt me, just ask my cell mate!

It’s something that I try, to always see in the mirror.
But. It’s a constant work of progression, and recession.

I follow my code.But. I have never loved myself. I feel like all of the ingredients are here. But. I have yet to put it all together.and love myself, for being. I’m still young/ish. Still trying.

JLoon's avatar

No.

But I’m honest.

Okay I’m lying.

But admitting that doesn’t make me bad.

Or good.

Just human, and I can live with that.

As long as there’s no math.

Because a truly good person doesn’t need to be a genius.

They can get by on their looks and money.

I think if I was really beautiful I’d be rich.

It just hasn’t worked out that way.

Dammit.

A good person wouldn’t really care, though.

And not caring is easy for me.

So maybe that’s it.

I’m a good person because I don’t care.

I feel better now.

Thanks for asking.

KNOWITALL's avatar

@MrGrimm888 Good to hear from you, buddy!!! Hope you’re doing better.

JLoon's avatar

@WhyNow – “Giving a good Morgan James” is now in my bedroom vocabulary ;P

WhyNow's avatar

@JLoon Will not touch that!

rebbel's avatar

I might…

JLoon's avatar

@rebbel – Be good.

rebbel's avatar

If I can fill in what giving a “Morgan James” is, I think I’ll manage.

MrGrimm888's avatar

I’m still waiting on a donor.
Maybe. If I were a “good person. ”........

Mimishu1995's avatar

@Brian1946 from what I know about you, I guess you weren’t there on purpose :)

@MrGrimm so glad to see you here! There are people here me at least who totally think you are a good person :)

MrGrimm888's avatar

Thanks Mimi .

Zaku's avatar

@JLoon As good as the girl in my link?

JLoon's avatar

@Zaku – We’re talking a different level of gooderness.

nightwolf5's avatar

I try to to be and think of myself as a good person, even if I don’t always feel it.

It’s how you treat others, and the world around you, kind of thing.
