In the grand scheme of things, yes….the question really should be if your answer is no, why aren’t you changing it?

ironically I would say yes. Even though I do a lot of bad things and I’m really mean sometimes, I think ultimately I’m a good person. I have a good heart

As long as others around me are becoming or want to be better people, I am a good person

Its always a choice. I Can be a bitch but when someone needs it I’ll always be there.

How could I let myself live otherwise??

I’m amazing, but seriously we all have to think of ourselves as good and just, otherwise we would destroy ourselves.

I consider myself to be a straight-edge, soft-hearted person who’s made some bad life decisions. :)

Well, I can look at myself in the mirror. That’s a good sign.

I’m a good person. I don’t think I’d be a good ant. I’m too lazy for that.

The Bible says take lessons from the ants…

try it- it FEELS GOOD.

and you can secretly carry yourself with an air of superiority over all the a**holes out there, because you ARE superior.

I am not always as good as I can be, but by comparison, I am better than most I know. I try to live within the Golden Rule and keep my ethical base. Each day I try to be a better person than I was the previous day. Somedays that notion is shot within five minutes of waking up, other days I succeed. But, that does not stop me from putting two feet on the floor and saying I will try.

I try to live by Horace Mann’s mantra: Be ashamed to die until you have won some victory for mankind.
