How can you recognize a good person?

Good people stand up for positive, human values - they are compassionate, environmentally aware, warm, helpful, accepting, supportive, forgiving, give trust and love. But a good person also makes mistakes sometimes, stands by them and learns from them.

What is a "do-gooder"?

The term "do-gooder" is nowadays mostly used as an ironic and pejorative description for a person who behaves in a seemingly exaggeratedly politically correct manner or meticulously advocates political correctness.

So it is used as a kind of swear word, although it is of course positive when someone stands up for the good in the world.

How can I help other people?

You can help other people in many ways. For example, by sharing your lunch with a homeless person, lending a sympathetic ear to others, donating money to charity, or offering your help when someone is clearly unwell.
