Being a good person is not hard, but it doesn’t just happen.
15 Simple Traits why Linda is a “Truly Good Person”!
1. She is honest in relationships.
Relationships can put an amazing amount of stress and strain on a person, especially when things are going wrong. A nice person may try to stay in a relationship for too long, attempting to force something that isn’t there. But a truly good person will be honest in their relationship and move it forward when things are going well and end it when the time comes. It’s difficult, if not impossible, to live up to your lofty potential when your relationship is dragging you down. Be honest about how you feel and stay loyal when you’ve committed.
2. She compliments others when deserved.
Good people understand that others need praise. Complimenting is not only a good thing to do but a sign that you can be excited about other people’s triumphs. A truly good person will compliment when deserved and offer constructive criticism when warranted.
3. She calls her parents regularly.
It’s simple, but being respectful and grateful for your parents is a truly great thing. It’s easy to get too busy and let life get in your way, but truly good people find time to make sure they check in with mom and dad regularly.
4. She is polite.
Good people are polite. They show respect and mind their manners. It’s not to be a showoff or to seem better; they just truly respect individuals and want to treat them how they want to be treated. You don’t have to be formal or walk on eggshells to be polite. It’s more a function of ensuring you act in a way that is fitting for your present location.
5. She is kind to everyone.
A good person doesn’t have to like everyone, but they are at least kind. They look at people for the person they can be and can look past the present to see the person’s positives.
6. She is generous with their belongings.
While you don’t physically have to give the shirt off your back, a truly good person is willing to be generous. A good person understands that the things we collect and the money we accumulate are not worth anything without people to share it with. You don’t have to be a bleeding heart, giving away your life fortune; rather, be open and generous to those less fortunate in a time of need.
7. She remembers her manners.
Whether it’s waiting until everyone has their food to eat or opening the door when others walk through, proper manners are definitely not out of style. Truly good people understand the importance of their actions and always remember their manners.
8. She thinks of others.
It’s easy to be selfish and do what’s best for yourself. Yet, truly good people consider others in their decisions. They understand that what’s good for them may not always be the best for others. They don’t have to cater exclusively to others; rather, they understand and take into consideration how their actions will affect others and are comfortable with the decision to move forward.
9. She goes the extra mile.
A truly good person makes sure the task gets done and always goes the extra mile. Whether it’s staying to help clean up after an event or spending their own time ensuring things get done properly, a good person understands the importance of finishing what they start.
10. She is kind to loved ones.
Sometimes you can be great to others but treat the ones who love you the most the worst. A truly good person doesn’t take out their problems on their loved ones and is as pleasant at home as in the public eye.
11. She smiles.
A smile can light up a room, and truly good people smile often—not just when things are going well.
12. She makes the best out of every situation.
In every situation, there are positives and negatives. A truly good person will find and focus the positives. That’s not to say they don’t take the negatives; rather, they find ways to improve and become better because of the bad things.
13. She makes friends easily.
A truly good person is one who people want to be around. People are drawn to them. By being positive and finding the best in others, they can make and keep friends easily.
14. She doesn’t take things for granted.
Being a truly good person is an ongoing pursuit. They understand that what they’ve done in the past doesn’t ensure results in the future.
15. She is consistent.
A first impression is a lasting impression. By being consistent in what they do, a truly good person will ensure they always put their best foot forward and treat every person and situation the same.
