From a universal point of view taking everything into account nothing is good or bad; desirable or undesirable.
For me though certain things can be said to be good or bad, stroking a tiger is bad for me, the tiger might think its good; brushing my teeth is good but bad for the bacteria. Its my perspective.
Subjectivity is the only perspective.
