After reading both of these wonderful ladies post I needed a few days to think about how I would answer this. I decided to start my response with a snippet from a post I did back in 2012 titled "What Is A Witch?"
Witch - noun~1. a person, now especially a woman, who professes or is supposed to practice magic, especially black magic or the black art; sorceress.As I said in my original post, both of those definitions offend me, and those definitions are why my answer to "are you a good witch or a bad witch?" is neither I am simply a witch and I decided to become a Pagan/Witch to get away from the stupidity of organized religion. Stupidity such as when and how I should practice my religion, what I should and should not wear, or my favorite putting down other for not practicing the way we do.
2. an ugly or mean old woman; hag.
So am I good or bad?
I don't always have time to celebrate each and every Sabbat, nor do always have a permanent altar set up; Bad Witch.
I love nature and hold it in very high regard, I love to be in my yard planting and tending to my plants; Good Witch.
I do not follow "harm none" to the letter; Bad Witch?
On the other hand I have never set out to harm anyone, but I will protect and defend my family and friends with a fierceness that only a few have seen; Good Witch?
I do not think there are Good Witch's or Bad Witch's there are just Witches. We seek to walk our own path, do our own thing, talk with the Goddess and/or God in whatever way we choose, we choose to be ourselves. So all of you out there the next time you're told that you are good or bad for what you do or don't do, tell them I am neither good nor bad I am simply ME.
And to those of you out there judging others on what they do or don't do, I recommend that you take a good long look in the mirror and ask yourself "what's missing in my life that's making me so board that I have to put my nose in others peoples business?" I sure when you find what's missing in your life you'll quit finding faults in other peoples lives and enjoy living your own.
