Have you ever met anyone who is truly kindhearted? I’m not taking about people who do kind things for others. Yes, there are kind people out here, but I’m talking about a step beyond this. When I refer to a kindhearted person, I’m talking about someone who has a pure heart and puts kindness towards others above all else, even when another person doesn’t treat them in the same way. A kindhearted person overlooks the flaws and inappropriate actions of people and considers the feelings of others. I’ve met a few of these people in my lifetime and it’s amazing how their pure heart shines through in their words and actions.
I strive to be a kindhearted person, but being kind and being kindhearted aren’t the same thing in my eyes. Kindhearted is a personality trait I believe you’re born with, like other parts of your personality. Sure life experiences and upbringing develop and nurture this trait, but it has to present in you to begin with.
Do you know anyone who is truly kindhearted? What are some of the characteristics of that person that you admire?
