Hello friends, welcome to SahilSharmaBlogs where you get the all informational stuff related to your life problems.

Today we are going to discuss the difference between the goodness and kindness, or the difference between gentleness and humanity.

Firstly we will know about the definitions of both. And some questions that might occur in our mind regarding this like….

What are the importance of these qualities in our life ? How can we acquire these qualities ? what are the benefits of these qualities ? how it helps in making your life more happy and prosperous ?

What is goodness or gentleness ?

Goodness is the quality of having good and moral traits.it is the virtue being righteous in action. Goodness can be achieved at any stage of life by some guidance and good habits.

“Every act of goodness is born from our desire to be happy.”
― Udai Yadla

Goodness is not only a quality rather it’s a process of growth in our life. The more we become good in our life , the more peaceful our life becomes. The process may be harder, but the end will be joyful.

It is very difficult to always be on the path of goodness. We always be misguided by the materialistic illusion and lust around us and that leads us to negative things, which is not good.

Goodness is like WOW! When somebody feels like this for you, you will be definitely a great person. Everyone is good in their eyes, but are they really good? – is known by their qualities and action. Goodness is there, when somebody else feels good or positive about your nature.

People often make images of others in their mind by other person’s qualities. Everyone feels comfortable to talk with positive people. Everyone love and wants to make friendship with good people.

What is kindness or humanity ?

Kindness is the quality of sympathy and understanding for every living being. It is similar to goodness but while talking about the kindness we involve affection for people around us. Kindness comes from the heart. It is not a skill to be acquired by some physical means.

Kindness is a process of thinking beyond the limits of materialistic illusion. If we feel greedy about the materialistic achievement we can’t become kind.

“You know someone is truly special when the most beautiful thing they have on is a kind soul.”
― Matshona Dhliwayo

To become kind, you should practice thoughtfulness. It helps you to look at others as they are, without your own positive or negative opinion. Thoughtfulness helps keep your mind relax and happy. It makes easy to take good decisions.

There are many signs of being kind. Some examples are helping the needy, talking politely, opening a door, doing charity and feeding a hungry man.

Kindness is the quality of courageous people. Some think that it’s a sign of weakness and taking advantage of it, but it is not like that.

The Seven Social Sins are:

Wealth without work.
Pleasure without conscience.
Knowledge without character.
Commerce without morality.
Science without humanity.
Worship without sacrifice.
Politics without principle.

We often hear this – humanity is the supreme religion. We must accept this, because every religion teaches us to be kind and humble to every living being.

Some comparison or difference between goodness and kindness

Goodness and kindness are both the virtues of a good person. These qualities help you in every stage of life. Everyone likes to make friendship with a good and kind person.

The main difference between goodness and kindness is that kindness is generally liberal and sympathetic, and serving others is its main purpose while goodness generally aims at being righteous in action and behaviour.

Combining the two qualities make a good person. We should cultivate these in ourselves. Though both are the qualities of a good person, still there are some differences between goodness and kindness.

Feeling of peace and satisfaction comes from the qualities of goodness and kindness.

Goodness generally means being honest and moral in your action and thoughts whereas kindness generally means being generous, considerate, and pleasant in nature.

One more difference between goodness and kindness is the qualities we associate with them. Kindness generally associates with generosity, mildness, and carefulness while goodness associates with truthfulness, morality, and uprightness.

Likewise, qualities such as cruelty, meanness, harshness, and brutality are the opposite of unkindness whereas sinful, immoral, and foul are the opposite of goodness.

What is the importance of good qualities in our life ?

Earth is the only planet where the survival of living beings is possible. There are many distinct living species on earth. Human beings are the best creatures og God o earth.

The mechanism of human beings is very complicated. The modern technology has helped a lot to know about it in detail, but the origin of life is still unrevealed.

The development in any field is the result of the human mind and it’s thinking power. The human mind is so powerful that it can create the most pleasant thing as well as the most destructible thing artificially.

Everyone has some unique qualities in their lives. Some use that for positive work and some for negative work.

People with goodheartedness and compassion will always avoid entering any negative thought in their mind. They always practice engaging their mind in the process of goodness and humanity. A positive mind always gives positive and productive ideas.

Any materialistic achievement will never make us contented in life, it never makes us peaceful. People are running madly behind fulfilling their lust. Lust is just satisfying their temporary pleasure which will never be satisfied with any amount of lust.

Kind-hearted people do charity to purify their heart. They live for the welfare of all human beings. Putting a smile on another’s face is their prime goal in life. They forget their life problems doing this.

You may be good for yourself, in your life, but kindness makes you receive respect, honour, happiness, affection. These are the real blessings.

We live in a society where people of different thinking live together. If the people in society are good and kind hearted, the whole society will grow. Otherwise, everyone will be disturbed. There are some negative people in every society, but positivity always overcomes that.

How can we acquire good qualities ?

The qualities of goodness, kindness, humanity, thoughtfulness, compassion all are the ingredients of good people.to acquire these traits, firstly you have to understand each and every quality very deeply and you must know the differences between goodness and kindness or humanity and compassion.

To acquire these qualities, we must stay attentive every moment. These qualities will be learned effectively in the real world. No institutes will be able to make you acquire these qualities.

These traits will be learned from our surroundings, our family is the best place to learn all in a single place. Our parents always want us to become a good and nice person in life.  and they give their best in the making of your life.

In today’s era, everyone is busy in their life. No one cares for others, all have become selfish. This quality creates adversity for society. There will be no unity in the society, it is disastrous.

On the other hand, if people acquire good qualities like kindness, goodness sympathy, we all will grow, our society and country will grow. There will be happiness all around.

There are many illustrations in our past when people have sacrificed their lives for their nation. This courage comes from when you have the feeling of love and affection for society and people.
