Genuine people are hard to find these days. Everyone seems to be pretending to be someone they are not and most people just don’t have the morals they should.
We all hope to find other genuine people as we move through life but all too often we forget how to truly find them or what to look for. Chances are you’ve never even questioned whether or not you were as genuine as you think you are. Below I am going to go over some of the signs that prove you are a genuine person if you do not have these things present within perhaps doing some work on yourself might be a good place to begin. Once you find yourself, others will make themselves known as well.
10 Signs You Are A Genuine Person With Good Values:
1. You go out of your way to help those in need.
You help other people when they need you. Sure, you don’t hinder yourself but if you see someone walking down the side of the road in the rain you will offer them your umbrella. You know that sometimes that small act of kindness can make a huge difference in the lives of others.
You take responsibility for your actions all the time. When you do something wrong or make a mistake you are quick to call yourself out. This is just how you are.
3. You know that not everyone is going to like you and that it’s perfectly okay for them not to.
Sometimes people aren’t going to like you and you have made peace with that. You know that in this life you cannot please everyone. You do not waste time trying to make sure everyone loves you.
4. You won’t do something that you don’t want to do just because everyone else is doing it.
You will not go out of your way to do things other people are doing. If you don’t want to do something you do not do it. This is especially prominent in situations that go against your own values or moral code.
5. You always treat others with respect.
You treat everyone with respect. You are kind until provoked and won’t be quick to anger. You are always willing to try even with the worst individuals.
You are not an attention seeker. You don’t do things just for the recognition. If you do something it is because you truly want to.
7. You stand up for what is right.
You go out of your way to stand up for what is right. If you see someone being treated badly you don’t ignore it. You are there for those who need you.
You are a hard worker. You do your job and get things done that need to be done. Giving up is never an option with you.
9. If you say you are going to do something, you do it.
You don’t say one thing and do another. If you say you are going to do something you do it. You are true to your word.
10. You don’t feel like you have to prove yourself to anyone.
You never feel like you have to prove yourself to others. You are unapologetically yourself and that is a beautiful thing. Not many people in this day and age are able to say this one applies to them.
