People with good hearts are pleased with the happiness and success of others.

Whether you are given credit for a job well-done, promoted, or simply celebrating something, they sincerely congratulate you for all your ideas and achievements. They never get jealous or any ill feelings towards you, even when life favors you over them. For them, there is no room for competition because it will just attract negative vibes. You will be amazed how they are able to celebrate with you your victory as if it were their own, and will never run out of compliments for you.

People with good hearts prioritize others even if they have to set their needs aside.

They do not mind giving a large chunk of their time because they are gladdened in giving you company. Every time they lend a helping a hand, it leaves them with a good feeling and you can see it on their faces. When you need someone to listen to your rants, they will come running and never get tired of your stories.
