Yes, being a nice person is difficult. You don't just become a decent person and stay that way. Constant effort is required. Some days, you will succumb to fear and selfishness. Other days, you will fight against anger and hatred.
The need for goodness comes from within us all. It is our nature to want to help others; we are social animals who live in groups. This desire to give and receive love leads many people to become teachers, nurses, or priests.
Being a good person also requires that we use our skills and knowledge for the betterment of others. Scientists develop technologies to cure diseases, artists create beautiful things, and writers write stories that entertain and teach us something new about life. All of these activities require that we be kind and caring.
Finally, being a good person means doing what's right even when no one is watching. There will always be someone who wants to do evil, so we should not be surprised by this fact. But nonetheless, it is important to follow your heart and do what you believe is right.
The need for goodness exists within us all.
Yes, a terrible person may change into a nice person. Whatever it was that made you a nasty person has to end. Your new ethical norms will eventually define you. If you keep doing evil things then you are being treated as an evil person and can expect no different outcome.
The only way to be a good person is by default because it requires nothing other than who you are. You could try to be a good person but if you were lazy or selfish then you would fail. Any behavior we dislike in others we should also avoid ourselves. Being a good person is not some great act it is merely what you are by nature.
A bad person can change into a good person. This happens when someone realizes the error of their ways and decides not to repeat their past actions. They realize they have been wrong all along and want to stop being bad. This can happen at any time. There is no time limit on this process.
Good people cannot change into bad people. This would require going against their nature. A good person is one who does good acts without thinking about them, while a bad person does bad acts for pleasure or profit. Some people claim they are good and bad at the same time. This is not true goodness. True goodness is constant and cannot be changed.
Other excellent people are occasionally terrible, but they are typically good and attempt to improve when they are bad because, at core, they are decent people. Another type of excellent person is identical to the previous one, however they occasionally do evil things. Identical yet different examples include dictators and criminals who still try to lead good lives most of the time.
Finally, there are two types of evil people: good ones that become evil or bad people and bad ones that remain bad no matter what. Examples of the first category are Adolf Hitler and Bill Clinton while those of the second category are Ted Bundy and Mike Tyson. Although both types of people are excellent in their own way, we will focus on the first category here.
Good people that turn into evil or bad people usually do so because of an external factor such as greed, jealousy, or anger. Some examples of this type of person are John D. Rockefeller Jr., Julius Caesar, and Richard Nixon. People like this have good qualities that surface when there is no pressure from outside sources to act corruptly. When these circumstances change, then the lust for power, recognition, etc. drives them to commit evil acts.
Bad people that remain bad no matter what tend to be less common than good people that turn into evil ones. These people have no desire to hurt others, but an opportunity arises that allows them to use their skills for evil purposes.
Being loyal to oneself is an unrivaled source of power. Being kind to others is a question of personal preference. Some may believe you are kind to them, while others may not recognize you are, even though you exhibit the same attitude. In this world, it is worthwhile to be a nice person.
We're not flawless, and we make "questionable" judgments from time to time, but it doesn't make us good or evil people. What truly distinguishes you as a decent person is how you conduct yourself on a daily basis. You're a decent person if you're considerate, compassionate, and overall polite, regardless of your imperfections.
Decent people also respect others' opinions and feelings, even if they disagree with them. They try to resolve conflicts without fighting. They keep their promises. They care about others and themselves. And most important of all, they work to improve themselves daily.
There are many other traits that go into defining a good person, but these are some of the main ones. As you can see, being a decent person isn't exactly easy, but it's certainly possible. We all have our off days, but remember: everyone makes mistakes, and those who fear and hate others are responsible for most violence in the world. There are good people out there who deserve our love and kindness, and who know what it means to be decent people. Let's learn from them and keep improving ourselves so we can make this world a better place.
When you are a decent person who constantly treats others with compassion regardless of who they are, you might easily be exploited by others for their own profit without even realizing it. People may believe that because you are "nice" and kind, they can get anything they want from you and simply manipulate you. However, this isn't true; being good doesn't entitle anyone to treat you any differently.
The only reason why people would want to exploit your good nature is because they see you as weak. You must realize that there are evil people in the world who will not hesitate to take advantage of you if you give them the chance. Therefore, before you decide what kind of person you want to be, first figure out how much strength you have within you so that you don't become an easy target for others.
Once you know how much you can handle, then you can start thinking about becoming a better person. Be aware of other people's needs and try to fulfill them whenever possible. Also, remember that nothing great was ever achieved by only doing good; you should also consider acting upon your impulses occasionally!
In conclusion, the point of being a good person is to make the world a better place by serving others first and foremost. Only then will you be able to look inside yourself and find out what kind of person you want to be.
