Think piece of the day
If you believe you are a good person , why do you need someone else to think that about you?

Maybe because you don't really believe it.

Because each person is a social being. I can't be one who I am without understanding of mine in society. It's like a mirror. I need it to understand myself. Sometimes it's not verbal

if you were the only human being on the planet you couldn´t say you are a good or a bad person ... you need some else...always .

Well i don't believe there is good or bad that is social construct which is why you need assurance,since all morality is based on individual value judgments regarding any given moral issue at hand. Because nothing has value apart from a subject to value it, all value judgments are subjective,To say that a morality is subjective is to say that it varies from person to person, that it cannot be referred to without reference to an individual (or set of individuals). It means to say that there is no morality outside of the individual (or set of individuals). Thus, societal standards are also subjective.so you can't be good with refering to something you are good to,so to say I'm a good person,without objective morality,is a delusion.
Morality is nothing but a product of evolution
Just as noah harari said" There are no gods in the universeno nationsno money, no human rights, no laws, and no justice outside the common imagination of human beings. Unlike lying, an imagined reality is something that everyone believes in, and as long as this communal belief persists, the imagined reality exerts force in the world."well the only way, you can have an objective morality is if you believe in a religion.
