Are you good?

September 24, 2008 4:51pm CST
I am 24 years old, I have been a good person my whole life, I have never harmed anyone, I have always tried to protect people above everything else. It has got me nothing and it has got me nowhere. I am single, in a family that truly doesnt care, I have nothing and I have no one. I know there are people with far worse problems than mine, but I am so tired of the bad,evil people i know hurting others and not caring and getting everything they want. Does anyone else feel like this? sorry for the rant!

Things I've learned in life....... Always stay on the line between good and bad----that way people don't push you around. Never take the heat for anyone. Don't give up what you want just because some else wants it. You got to be proactive about your life, you can't expect someone else to make your life better, because they won't, a lot of people will take advantage of you if they assume that you will let them. Stop being a martyr.

It is a bit harsh but that's the way life got to be sometimes.....Basically the crux of it is that you can still be a good person but you don't have to be nice to people that treat you like crap. They only treat you like crap if they think that they can get away it.

I'm also a good person - imo. And for a long while I was also alone and felt as if nothing was going my way. But I do feel that what goes around comes around, and all of those people who aren't as good or caring as us will get their comeuppance. If you keep doing what you're doing, you'll get what you deserve. Good luck and keep your chin up.

That's what I was going to say, What goes around comes around. I've found it to be true 98% of the time. As long as you have a clear conscience keep plugging along and good things will happen:)

For me I'm a very good person! I help others the best way I can. I'm so affectionate, and I always listen to everyone. I'm optimistic and bubbly, and I always smile to everyone that I meet. I always want someone to feel good about herself/hisself. I always tried to be a blessing in someone's life. I ignore bad vibes, and only focus on positive side of life. I always acknowledge everyone, and always say thank you or sorry.

Good day... I'm a good person, if I have a choice between choosing good over evil even if the result would have been better from evil, I would still choose good over evil anytime. But then again things aren't painted in black and white more often than not it's in a gray area. If I did bad things more or less is to gain advantage for myself and specially more for my family but with out the intention to harm anyone but again doing bad thongs has it's consequences to others whether intended or not.

I belive no one in this world is so perfect to be called good .Every human is in the clutches of some or the other evil.Sorry if i hurt you but now you are also not good to your family .By saying that they doesn't care you are showing your indifference towards them .Until you understand your family they won't understand you .I hope that you understand me .

I think I'm a good person but there are times when I have an evil side as well. I don' think that's a bad thing as all because it's all very zen. You ain't human if you don't have both sides. Even angels kick b*tt sometimes. You don't have to be evil to get the things you want. You just have to know what you want and learn how to get them. Want a family who cares? I don't think your family doesn't really care about you. It's part of our "pack" mentality. Maybe they just don't know how to show it to you. Why don't you start? Why don't you voice out that you need their love and affection? Want to get something more out of life? A better job perhaps? A love life? More money? There are so many ways for you to get that without turning evil. You just have to know where to look and take the first step.

I conside myself to be a good person too. I have a good heart, I care about others, I do what I can to help, I do my best to be honest at all times, and I do not try to cause anybody pain. I have also been in the situation where i feel like the bad guys always win. In truth, I would rather have a clear conscious and be able to sleep at night than to decieve people. I find it much more rewarding this way. I may not reach my goals as quickly as the liers and cheaters seem to, but I will do it honestly, therefore: I know I will prosper in the long run. These mean, cruel,deceptive people may seem as if they are getting everything they want, but I guarantee they will pay the ultimate price in the end.

Yes I have been there, I have always lived the life we should, the way I was taught was to be good, honest and to help people and I always have but i do know what you are talking about, I have recently been let down by friends that I really helped along the wayand I have been thinking how humans are such ungrateful uncaring people and seem to get on...but i still think being a good person is the best way...

Generally, I'm a good person. At least that's what I think. I don't intentionally hurt people and I'm very caring. Don't apologize for ranting here. I'm sure everybody would understand that there are times when we need to rant and let go of what we feel in a healthy manner. We can't force people to act the way we wanted them to, so don't let them get into you. Just live your life the way you wanted to and I'm sure that'll make you happy.

It's good to rant hun sometimes you need to get it all out, i know the feeling i have also felt like that on more than one occasion the people that do good, work hard and stay out of trouble get shite on. Sorry you feel all alone babes but you have us lot i know it's not the same but you can rant and cry and shout and scream and we'll still all be here. This is just a low point things will pick up everyone goes through these times there are the times that get up to the good and help us appreciate them.

You need not feel sorry for this. It looks like you wanted to ask this for a very long time and at last you did it. Good things always take a very long time to give the benefits, similarly good people need to wait with extreme patience. If you believe in yourself and if you think you are doing good then there will be a lot of people around you but very few true people,. Getting vexed or feeling for others will put in a more depressed state. Spend time for others but don't spend time only for others. :)

seems to me that you are not doing well in your life. i think that it is normal to feel that way. but we have to move and see the positive things in life. and i know that it is important to be good to others and not to hurt anyone. but it is not enough to have a beautiful life in just living a good life. it takes more than that to be happy in life and to find some good things in life. i think we should associate with people with right out look in life. and that will going to affect us positively in life.

if this thought is always frustating your mind you better go to a psychiatrist i did the same when i got the same type of thoughts this world is a place to live happily not a place to think cause thinking is injurious to health........! as written by a psychiatrist well i am not making fun of you but i have been and still being in the same situation as you are and found out that the only good that you can do to this world is to do good to you with out thinking of anyone else cause that will help you and all others alot

I have completed my first half of life and during this age I do not remember if I have hurt any body intentionally. It may be possible that some one got hurt unknowingly and if I realize at a later stage I do beg sorry for that. I think one should be generous towards others and should respect other and elder people.

i think i am not the right person to say if i'm good or not,but the people arround me.but all i can say is that i try to be good to others, cause i believe that's what god wants me to be. but its to difficult to be good because of the temptation around me and the people who is not that nice too me,i sometimes get easily irritated.
