Life in Writing
"It's not who I am underneath. It's what I do that defines me." - Batman
What Batman says here is true. That doesn't mean who you are underneath doesn't matter. Your thoughts and your dreams determine your actions. Truly becoming good starts with good intent, but don't make the mistake of thinking that good intent is enough.
Actions define us. Saying that we're still good underneath it all despite our bad choices is nothing more than a crutch. When it comes down to it, good people do good things, and bad people do bad things.
Batman is wise to have said this. It's worth taking stock of your life every once in a while to see where your actions rank. Are you doing good? Or are you doing bad? Be honest with yourself, and make the changes that you need to. Abandon your crutches, and do something good to define yourself.
