If you are a good person then chances are that you have suffered a lot. But why do kind people suffer more?
It is a dog-eat-dog world, they say; it is the wolves who rule the world, so on and so forth. The world may appear brutal, competitive, and uncaring but it is the good people of the world who help us retain faith in humanity.
There are, still, people with hearts of gold who suffer alone and they suffer a lot. And if you are one of the people who has known little else than kindness, then you would know that you often suffer more than most. But why?
A good person suffers a lot but you would hardly hear them complain. They may be undergoing a world of trouble but you would hardly know the inner turmoil which they are engulfed in.
Other people, on the other hand, cry at the slightest provocations and they try to attract attention. Good people try to suffer in silence and not bother others with their trouble. Hence they hardly seek help and hence suffer alone.
Good people are generous, sacrificing, and selfless by nature. They do things for others which one may not even do for their loved ones. And most often they do it without even telling the person about it.
They, therefore, tend to hide their sacrifices. They do not like taking credit for the things they do. Also, they do not like bothering people with their own concerns. Thus, they often keep smiling while they suffer, from within.
Good people suffer so that others don't and it is not because someone forces them to suffer but because it is in their nature to shield others from harm. They would rather get hurt than hurt others.
It is one of the things which adds balance to the world that there are some good people whose kind acts make up for all the bad things which others do. Their generous nature helps those who cannot help themselves.
One of the greatest qualities of good people is that they are highly empathetic. They can keep themselves in other people's shoes and understand things from their point of view.
Given their tendency to understand things by placing themselves in other people's shoes, they understand what it takes to bear the hurt. They, therefore, tend to suffer than let their own anger hurt others.
Good people are selfless and they cannot help it. It is almost a compulsive feeling which is a part of their identity. Generosity, kindness etc. comes from within and they feel obsessed with sacrifices.
It is this compulsion on their part that they just cannot give up. Even when they have little, they would give it away in a heartbeat. To them, it is more important that they help. They would rather go hungry than see others go hungry.
The thing about good people is that they have a certain standard of personal traits. They hold themselves accountable to a higher standard of values and they like being greater with their practices.
They, therefore, do not wish to stoop to the level of those who hurt others. Their inner moral values do not allow them to degrade themselves. It means that they often keep hurting but with pride.
Good people are the one who would rather take the suffering and battle alone. They do not wish to get others involved in their fights. They do not wish to burden others with their own concerns.
Also, they are not the kind of people who would turn around and hurt others. They would never strike others, irrespective of what they do. This, therefore, means that they usually suffer without giving it back.
