What Makes A Good Person?

No one is perfect, we all know that! But you can do your best to try and be a good person. What are the common qualities of a good person?:

  • Generosity Sharing is caring after all!
  • Kindness – A loose term but being kind is a general consensus of being a good person.
  • Empathy – Putting yourself in the shoes of someone else is a wonderful quality.
  • No resentment, jealousy or bitterness – Be happy for someone who has succeeded rather than being resentful for it.
  • Selflessness – Not worrying about yourself all the time but rather help other people.
  • Be there – Being there for those you care about and not judging them based on their feelings is a beautiful quality.
  • Standing up for your beliefs without pressing them on others – Having your own opinion is something that should never be compromised but no one likes their opinions being ignored.
  • No intentional cruelty – Doing something to hurt another person on purpose is an incredibly nasty thing to do. Try and avoid creating pain or drama amongst peers.

    I like your list and I think you’ve covered all the bases. Its interesting that you bring up the topic of goodness when almost all you hear about is the exact opposite. I truly believe decent folks outnumber the nasty ones, but for some reason, the latter get all the press.

      I know and that is why I feel that promoting things that make people happy is much more important 😀 xx
