Many people talk about good character, good values and good morals – but what in the world does that all mean? Well, your character is shown by how you think, feel and act. It’s your personality. We all have many character traits (how we behave) that are both good and bad. Having lots of good character traits usually equals a happy life. But having too many negative character traits might end up being a real bummer. So it makes sense that working to form a good character is very important.
