When Relationships Backfire: Here are 4 Signs that you Truly have a Big Heart

You are honest

Honesty is not a trait that you find in everyone.

Many people believe that a few lies here and there, which may “protect” someone from grief are a normality, this might be true in some cases but usually the long term effect is damaging.

Being honest and saying what you truly feel shows your level of integrity and shows you have a big heart.  In fact, honesty is one of the most admirable traits in successful people, especially when it’s backed up with actions.

You Forgive Easily 

The act of forgiveness is one of the best things you can do for yourself and the people in your life.

When you forgive, it means that you are willing to make peace with the pain, release it and move on.

But this can be difficult especially when the other person is not remorseful or when they hurt you intentionally. That is why Gandhi once said that Forgiveness is a trait of the strong hearted, for the weak do not forgive !

You are kind 

Kindness consists of qualities such as or being generous, affectionate and friendly. Being kind also means that you celebrate the success of others full-heartedly.

Do you pay attention when people achieve extraordinary things or do you bring up negative energy?

Another characteristic that is often associated with kindness is offering a helping hand to people who are in need.

You are patient

Patience is one of the essential life skills—one that needs constant cultivation and practice.

It is easier to be impatient with others or the situations in your life, especially because patience always involves overcoming obstacles or setbacks.

By striving to be patient you can live without fear of the future and of things that are not within your control.
