I’ve just told my grandmother that I want to spend time alone with my father. But not so I can have a nice chat, so that I can figure out whether he has a mental heath condition. Does that make me a bad person?
I lie, and am sometimes proud of it, I can use people, and mess them around. Does that make me a bad person?
Does the fact that my father spends time with me, and has his own agenda, and the fact that the people I lie and use, lie and use me, make it okay that I do it to them?
I am fiercely loyal, and try to do the best thing by the people that are truly important to me. Does that make me a good person?
I stick to my word, and I can see things from other people’s point of view. Does that make me a good person?
Is the fact that I try to do the right thing, even if I sometimes don’t make me a good person?
Does the fact that I do some some good things, and some bad make me a bad person? Does it make me a good person? Does it leave me in limbo?
What is a good person? What is a bad person? Who decides whether we are good or bad people? Our society? Us? Or both.
