Sometimes we are mean for shits n giggles, or cruel from vulnerability. People can be sadistic too. At what point are you a bad person? Is having a good intent enough of a redemption? What about personality deficiencies like avoidance or anxiety, don’t they lead to hurting people?
I tend to see people who say they're bad people as beating themselves up for not being good enough, and people who say they are good people are using such a thing to excuse petty, shitty things, while labeling it with words like "Justice" or "Karma" for their witch hunts.
I try to do good but enjoy social sadism, so I don't really know where that puts me.
I play harmless pranks but I do a lot of volunteer work, I'm there for my friends, and I try to grow as a person. I care about this website and the people in it and I care about my brother. I also love my husband and we together have done a lot of work on our marriage
I know I'm a good person because I care about people and I take actual action and self sacrifice to help others on a regular basis even when no one is looking or notices.
some people just claim they're bad people, would be great to hear from them (you know who you are)
I used to be on that bender, but then overtime the perception of how others are when being that way's had me try to adjust it.
Being all "Zomg I am such a baaaad person" tends to become self-indulgent.
