What is a good character? This may seem like a simple question, yet it may be a complicated one, too. But there are many different ways to describe someone who has good character, and some of the qualifications are honesty, loyalty, and faith.

And even though many do not display such significant traits, she knows how to pass them down to others like me. When I was younger, she revealed to me that there is evil and good. Generally, there are two sides to every coin. For example, without evil, there can be no good to begin with. However, we hardly think of good and evil, and go what we were influence to do.

However, “having a good character is someone who has stable and distinctive qualities built into an individual’s life which determine his or her response regardless of circumstances.

Otherwise, my mother displays that strong and “good” character, and has assemblage of qualities that distinguish her as so. Whether or not one agrees, she will always be the greatest definition of a good character in my eyes.
