And BTW, as to what Butch wrote; I remeber Richard Prior saying he was going to the prisons to get down with his black brothers! After he came away, he said THANK GOD THERE ARE PRISONS!!! We can talk about if we are good people or not so good people. People like Butch sees the real underbelly of humanity. i say kudos to him that he can be honest and back away from it and talk about it.
Truly bad people do truly bad things to other people with absolutly 0 remorse for their actions.

That in my opinion is the definition of a bad person.

I guess that depends on your scale of what bad is. If a clerk gives you a dollar too much change back and you keep it. Does that make you a bad person. If it does, what do you consider the person in my example to be?

Im sure everyone here has done something their not proud of but that doesnt make them a bad person because they probably have a certian amount of remorse for what they did.

Doing bad things over and over again with 0 remorse. Yes, you can consider yourself a bad person.

I am a work in progress. Forgiven. I know where I'm going when I leave here, and then it'll all be "good". And all my "bad" will be gone forever.

Yes! What Elsie said.

Well im one of the old timers so I'll take a shot at an answer.

I was brought up to treat people the way they treat me. I don't go out of my way to cut anyone slack because of bad behavior. Its not my problem if your having a bad day. I had nothing to do with it so I wont tolerate being your whipping post for no reason. On the other side of the coin Im a very pleasant person 99 percent of the time because these are the people I come in contact with and we get along fine.

Does it make me a bad person to not tolerate bad behavior? I don't know but it is what it is.

I do believe that I am a good person.

I am very loyal to my family and friends, I would do anything for them.

I would do anything for my animals, they are very much loved and very well taken care of.

I've helped family, friends and co workers adopt dogs and cats from animal shelters.

I've donated time, money and supplies to animal shelters.

I took in a stray cat that I found this year and ended up with a $500 medical bill.

Even though I dumped my boyfriend, I am taking him to the doctor next week for him to get surgery and I will care for him until he is healed.

There is so much more, I am a good person and that makes me happy.

I believe I am a bad person, and spend my life being a doormat helping and giving at every opportunity for some sense of approval.
It's a huge issue in my life and should probably seek therapy to overcome my childhood.

I try to be. Like La Rena I also help my ex and he helps me. I live and let live. If someone needs my help I am there, if they don't, I am happy for them. If they do something I advised them not to, I don't go into I told you so, but am there to help them anyway. People have to learn by their own mistakes. Just because someone doesn't believe in my philosophy, doesn't make them wrong or bad it's just makes them their own person. That's what makes the world go round. I work on being a good person everyday, sometimes I mess up . But I keep trying.
