Goodness is a behavior marked by a willingness to do good, with ethical characteristics and a concern for others.
But goodness begins at home. It's about living with integrity, knowing what our important ethical principles and foundations are, and what right and wrong means in our lives. Try both intentions as of intrinsically kind and generous behaviors.
It also means treating ourselves as we would any other person. We usually talk and listen about goodness in relation to other people, but goodness towards oneself is equally important.
