What Does It Really Mean to Have a Heart of Gold?

We’ve all heard the phrase ‘heart of gold’. And let’s face it, we wouldn’t mind it if someone used it to describe us. But, what does it really mean? Let’s delve into it a little more.

People with a heart of gold are likely to possess the following characteristics:

Those with a heart of gold tend to be very trusting

Because of their pure nature, they will put their trust in you, as they are so trustworthy themselves. Don’t ever betray their trust, as they usually only see the good in people and you don’t want to shake their faith in humanity!

People with a heart of gold are very generous

You should consider yourself lucky if you find such an individual in your life. They tend to be very giving, not only of their time but also generous with sharing and giving gifts. You’re likely to find them bringing you treats and flowers, or meaningful gifts like the beautiful Willow Tree angels.

They’ll be there in your time of need

As the saying goes, “A friend in need, is a friend indeed.” If you’re lucky enough to be friends with someone who has a heart of gold, then you can be assured that they’ll lend their support when you’re going through troubled times. They won’t leave your side when others might.

They will sacrifice their own pleasure for their nearest and dearest

People who are self-sacrificing in nature are described as having a heart of gold. The more selfless someone is in their actions, the more deserving they are of being bestowed with this title.

They tend to be very empathic

With today’s increasingly hectic lifestyles, many people are consumed with their own issues only. Someone who is very empathic and feels others pains as their own is said to have a heart of gold. They are compassionate to the core and care deeply about issues that may have absolutely nothing to do with them.

Despite all their endearing qualities, they can still get hurt

People with a heart of gold are often taken advantage of. Some people may view their kindness as a weakness. If you meet someone that you truly think has a heart of gold, try and reciprocate their behavior towards them as much as you can. Everyone goes through tough times, but they’re unlikely to ask for help due to their others-first nature. Try to be more intuitive to their needs so you can be there for them, just as they are for you.
