Being a good person is a behavior that must be maintained. No matter how big or small, kindness is still kindness. But today, many people are wrong in doing good. And that makes kindness something else.
When you have the intention to do good to someone, do it consistently and don’t be influenced by anyone. How you are is about your own heart. If you listen too much to other people, you will have a hard time making decisions about your own life.
The following are some things you should pay attention to when doing good to others.
When you really want to do good to others, do it sincerely. That sincere heart intention will make goodness flow as a reward that overshadows your life.
If you do good expecting something in return, you are likely to feel disappointed in a response that doesn’t live up to your expectations. Wouldn’t that just make your kindness a nuisance in your heart?
2. No need to share
When you do good to others, actually it is the duty of fellow human beings. So you don’t have to be proud.
Today, many people do good just to show off. Whether it’s to be told or posted through social media. Whatever it is, exaggeration of kindness is useless.
Maybe you’ve thought that by showing kindness, then you will motivate a lot of people out there. In fact, inviting others to do good does not have to show kindness.
3. Don’t bring it up
Are you among those who like to bring up the good in the past that you have done? When you do good, try to forget it. If you are sincere, usually the goodness will melt by itself, really.
Bringing up the good that has passed to the person you gave kindness will only arouse curiosity for those who hear it. Yes, wondering if you are expecting reciprocity from all that or some other purpose you have.
4. Too much documentation
When you do good to someone as an intermediary, of course you need documentation as proof of accountability that you convey the mandate from donors or related parties.
But remember, don’t overdo it. Because this is very likely to make the recipient feel offended and even embarrassed.
So, those are some of the things you should pay attention to when doing good to others. Hope you never get tired of sharing kindness and continue to be a good person, yes!
