Haha @ivory dismissal isn't always the worst - shuts down the negative thoughts fairly quickly, but I know what you mean can be limiting
I know the feelings you describe for sure, around being a "bad" person (though I don't think anyone is inherently bad), I think sometimes it is good to remember to let the days come and go. Truly you are who you are in this moment and beyond, and the fact that you're even asking the question indicates to me you are very far from a bad person. I think you're a terrific member of this community, I am sure that extends beyond the walls of ReachOut as well
Could you reframe the thoughts i.e. "I am a bad person" to "I feel like a bad person, though it's likely not true, right now I am feeling an emotion that I can move through".. It's not easy, but being an observer of ourselves can be super helpful, what are your thoughts?
