Idk if anyone else deals with this but does anyone worry if they're a good person? I think about the people I've met and the people I've known and the people I've had a good impact on and the people I've had a bad impact and I'm scared my past decisions determine whether I'm a "good" person or a "bad" person.

I mean don't get me wrong, I know no one's perfect and I get everyone has their flaws but I just don't want my flaws to negatively affect other people, yknow? I wanna believe I'm a good person but I just kinda have that thought in the back of my head that tells me I'm bad. Plus I've spent years of my life convincing myself I'm bad. So I'm not sure if anyone else deals with this same thing

    I get this too, it seems to me like it’s anxiety that’s grasping at our morals, give me a message if you need someone to talk to about it ❤️

    I have this weird thing where I convince myself I must not be a good person if I think I’m a good person. You’re not alone, I study my past like that, too.

    I experience this quite often. You’re not alone. When I was a little kid, I expressed to my mom that I was worried that I was spoiled (I had a house and two parents, while most of my friends did not). My mom said “You aren’t spoiled. Kids who are spoiled don’t worry about whether or not they are spoiled.” I always try to remind myself of what she said whenever I find myself ruminating about whether I’m a bad person, boyfriend, or son. Bad people don’t worry about whether or not they’re a bad person.
