such a thing

I was lucky enough to be in a reading today of my friend Sharon's new play, Fake Lake, which will be staged in a pool this summer.

It is about this place: Lake Powell, Utah.
Toward the end of the play, my character is lamenting the difficulty of taking a morally ambiguous situation/crisis and making a clear, right choice. She says:
I'm tired of being the source of so much harm. I want to be a good person. I'm trying to be a good person but at this point there may not even be such a thing.
Yeah.
I get that.

I don't think I delivered the line very well because I felt it so much and wanted to tell everyone that I meant it so much. I think I probably said it a little too emphatically for my own taste.
