Sorry, Avery! A few questions to help decipher your individual honor code, according to Meredith Strauss , a New Jersey-based psychotherapist, are the following:.

If they were,Mental Health system shouldn't act,as destroyer of my crazy kind. Psychology and psychiatry make rebellion against biology and evolution.
Results of this are disastrous and only I am aware of this on PT. Freud was father of modern psychology and No. Psychology become science fiction,when replaced realistic connection brains-mind,with brains-mentality lie. This was done in support of existence for both Mental Health system and fictional mental illness.
Crazy follower of nature debunk this Freud-Fraud in one comment. What are you talking about? You are making big and a lot of negative statements and you seem very subjective cause you give no arguments, just your personal opinion and you state it as if it is the ultimate truth.
Give arguments not personal opinions! This comment doesn't make sense. It looks as if it's been copied and pasted from a website or written by a bot. I think he's foreign and schizophrenic.

He posts on PT and other mental health sites frequently. He doesn't think highly of the mental health system. Poor guy. All they probably offer him is toxic sedatives. Indeed all are good person. As every person is unique in their own way, they have different style of dealing with different people and situations.
I believe that what she meant was that if you ask wether or not you're a good person, is because you care about being one and are terefore a good person. And if you don't behave like one, it's out of suffering or misunderstanding. And this is only reason,that people are upset by my comments.
I don't need,to defend them with arguments,because truth is no defence in this world. How I can wrote so powerful judgments, is connected with my benefictial madness. There is no-normality in me. What you read has been wrote by person,who shouldn't even posses any knowledge of english,to wrote such comment.
European maniacs are different,then yours are. Yes, I am a good persoon. Perfectly imperfect in being aware, think and act consistent with "why I live". I really enjoyed this article. I ask myself that question a lot. I'm on antidepressants that make me so tired I do nothing but sleep and have no libido so I don't get the chance to do much for anyone but I know I'm not a terrible person. Although as the years go by and I see everyone else having a life and I've tried every med and can't find any that don't leave me fat and tired and I get violent withdraw symptoms when my dr. If have it,then I shouldn't be capable to wrote a single comment on PT.
It's good that beyond angry PT staff,someone else notice my activism against my crazy kind nemesis-Mental Health system. What you will call clinical insanity,that is you normal irracionality. I never lie in my comments,so this the very problem for some people. And I can't be send to mental prison in my country,because of my comments here. I won, PT lost. Wonderful piece; short, easy to understand and read. Above all, inspirational. Thank you.
I love this article! It makes me uncomfortable because I am forced to judge myself honestly on that little scale! I love it! I have been known to sacrifice everything I have for my family and friends I find no physical possession worth more than any human life Self proclaiming one's goodness is a trap I personally believe we all should strive for better and only proclaim that we can always work towards becoming better persons.
Thanks for sharing. On the other hand, when you feel your own natural goodness, you are more likely to act in good ways. Acting good is, perhaps, a first step to being good. Breaking out of what you may believe, overly critical or not, to be a shallow, materialistic lifestyle, might begin with a commitment to do some volunteer work. Volunteering on a Saturday morning instead of spending the time at the local mall, may be thing that helps. This is question with no arbitrary quantification. What is good? Thousands of hypothetical examples to be inserted here but in essence would you harm people to save one life?
Is it then good if a thousand others confirm it was good? I think the question here is not as simple as am I good person. The questions I would ask is: Are you content with outcome of your actions? For actions resulting in unexpected outcomes are you content with your ability to reflect and alter your potential future actions? Are you able to act with the foresight to predict potential regret? Are you content that each individual has their own perception of what is good?
Or more simply — Are you content with yourself? I would like to believe it, but I wonder where sociopathic predators fit in. Children who, though shown kindness and redirection, rip wings off of bugs and kick small animals. I also don't believe anyone is pure good or evil. Take, for example, the question about doing things for others. I would bend over backwards for those that I love, at any cost to me. Then there are those outside of my loved circle, extended family that I would only help so that I didn't have to deal with rude comments in the future.

Overall, I am a good person. Am I charitable? Not really. But I am happy to help a stranger in other ways- reaching groceries on a high shelf, offering to take a stranger's photo with their camera so they're with their group. My mark in the world is showing kindness when people don't expect it. There are many definitions of how to be a good person.
Am I a bad person if a priest won't hear my concerns? Am I not worthy? Why should I bother then? Should I just remain isolated with no understanding? I sought out answers in the only way I know how and it seems that God's representative decided to just snub me. What was the point of even going to him at all? Does anybody even care about something like this? I know they see my suffering, yet they don't give me any advice directly, So what are the duties of a priest then? It seems to me to just kick me aside.
I may not be entirely bad, but it seems to me now that I must be worthless. I tell my husband all the time that he knew I wasn't a good person when he married me. He seems to forget that since I behave like a good, caring citizen who contributes meaningfully to society. However, he's rudely reminded of the fact that I'm not a good person on the inside when I make fun of others in private, of course and show my general lack of compassion. When he acts disappointed in my comments, I have to remind him that I'm not a good person and have never pretended to be with him.
Honestly, my only "downfall" is that I make fun of or criticize people, but only to my husband.
Sometimes he joins me in the comments, but never to the degree that I make them. Also the biggest difference between us is that he feels badly about what he says or thinks about people and I don't at all because I generally lack compassion. I found this article by Googling "Am I a good person" after our last incident. If I gauge my goodness or badness by my own standard of compassion and caring for others vs the fake one that demonstrate on the outside, then no I'm not a good person-- which is what I keep telling my husband, LOL!
Article said that if you think your a good person then u are. If u have malicious intentions or actions towards ppl though, then ur bad.

I've been a terrible person for going on twenty-five years now, and I find it works very well for the kind of person I want to be. When people appeal to my sense of myself as a good person to shame me into doing or not doing something, I can just laugh at them and tell them they're barking up the wrong tree. But when I screw up and hurt people--and I do that more than I want to, and being bad does not make it okay--it doesn't threaten some idea of my own goodness, and I can't use the excuse that I'm really somehow secretly a good person in areas they don't have access to.

So I just have to go ahead and weigh the critique and fix what I can, because regardless of what kind of person I am and what my motivations are, other people are unique and wonderful and genuinely deserve kindness. This is exhausting. It's amazing and exhausting. There aren't many actors who could endure the kind of torment Mary goes through. We really put Ellie's stamina and abilities to the test with this role, and I think audiences will be excited to see her take it to the max!
He did the makeup effects for several of my early films, and after a while I came to realize he wasn't just a great effects artist -- he's also a terrific actor! I wrote that short specifically for Arthur, so he's actually been attached to the movie longer than anyone else. Arthur knows how to move, knows how to let words dance out of his mouth, and has an uncanny ability the freak the ever-living crap out of people. In 'The Bad Man,' he's a one-man dynamo that had to be terrifying enough to give Ellie and Jason Crowe something genuinely scary to react to.
And that's pretty special. So, you already know Arthur as an effects artist and the director of 'Headless. You're gonna love it. PJ was definitely the hardest part to cast in 'The Bad Man. The role requires a male actor to be completely vulnerable, both physically and emotionally, and it's next-to-impossible to find men willing to open up like that on-camera for an audience. I had a hunch about Jason Crowe, so after a long day and night of shooting 'Wasco,' I mentioned the role of PJ to him. He said it sounded like a wonderful challenge.

Had he not said that, I'd still be searching for my PJ. Crowe is perhaps the most fearless actor I know. I asked a lot of him, and he offered everything. On set, he blew us all away. If you only know him for his comedy, be prepared to have your mind blown. He first came to my attention when he reviewed 'Found' back in He had mostly acted in movies for Dustin Wade Mills when we decided to cast him in 'Headless. He started working out three months before we started shooting 'The Bad Man,' and brought his weights with him to the set.
Every morning when the cast and crew were crawling out of bed to start another day of shooting, Dave was already up and running around the block in the dead of winter. In 'The Bad Man,' he plays a mute character with animal-like instincts. I don't remember directing Dave much, outside of timing and blocking. Behavior-wise, he was perfectly in-tune with his 'animal within'. I hope you enjoy his monstrously memorable performance.
