15 signs you have a pure soul (and you’re exceptionally authentic)

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

There’s so much good that comes from possessing a pure soul.

Let’s face it, there are far too many fake people out there with only their interests at heart. Perfectly inauthentic people who will say anything to get ahead.

But don’t worry, there are still plenty of good people out there as well.

But, it takes a special person to possess a pure soul – and it doesn’t always come easily.

Here are 15 signs you have a pure soul and are exceptionally authentic.

1) You’re humble

If you possess a pure soul, then being humble should be second nature to you.

It shouldn’t matter who you are talking to or spending time with, you treat everyone the same and always treat them with respect.

You’re not one to brag about your achievements in front of others, or to make them feel uncomfortable. Instead, you’re always there, willing to listen and be a shoulder for those who need it. And always giving of your time, which is one of the most important commodities we have.

If this sounds like you, then there’s a good chance you have a pure soul that is already shining for those who surround you.

2) You’re always smiling

The saying goes: it takes less muscles to smile than it does to frown. While it seems that is not actually correct, it still stands to reason that a smile has the power to change someone’s day for the better.

Whether you smile across at someone in the supermarket line, or greet a friend with a smile across your face, that smile holds a lot of power.

It shows you’re cheerful, optimistic and have a positive outlook on life. This rubs off on those around you.

Of course, we all have down days where we aren’t feeling our best. Even those with a pure soul. It’s the way that speaks to who you are.

Do you fight it with a smile, knowing it’s just temporary?

It’s safe to say you have a pure soul working its way from inside to out.

3) You give without expectation

It’s no secret that giving to others is a sign of a good person.

But those with a pure soul do this without even thinking.

They give their time.

Their energy.

Their money.

The clothes off their back (if the situation required), all the while not expecting a single thing in return.

This charity isn’t just reserved for those who are less fortunate.

It’s for anyone in need, no matter their attitude or whether or not they will be grateful for your actions. It can be hard to give to those we don’t feel are deserving, but this ability not to judge those around us is a true characteristic of someone who is pure of soul.

Do you give without question or expectation? It’s a good sign of your true character.

4) Always express gratitude

While others might not always give you thanks for good deeds you have done for them, you always have gratitude for those around you.

No matter how someone helps you out – whether their actions are big or small – you are always sure to thank them for their efforts and let them know how appreciated they are.

This isn’t something that you have to work out or force out.

It comes naturally to you and is completely genuine.

It comes from your pure soul.

5) You only have nice things to say

You know that saying: if you don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say anything at all?

Well, this does apply to some who is pure of soul.

They only ever have something nice to say and wouldn’t even consider speaking badly of anyone else, or any other situation.

It can be so rare to find someone like you.

Someone who only has good things to say about others behind their back.

Someone who never spreads lies or rumours.

Someone who always has your back no matter what.

If you find yourself in a group of people gossiping, then you simply walk away. It takes a big person to be able to disengage and do the right thing in these situations. If this is you, it’s clear you have a pure soul.

People like this are far and few between and are valued for the kind soul that they are.

6) You are free with the word ‘sorry’

For some, saying sorry takes effort and doesn’t come easily.

They see it as a weakness on their part.

An admission that they were wrong in a situation.

For someone who has a pure soul, this doesn’t even cross their mind. It doesn’t matter whether or not they are wrong in the moment, it comes down to feelings.

A pure soul is always ready with an apology when feelings have been hurt, no matter who was right in the situation.

Why? Because hurting someone else’s feelings is always wrong.

A pure soul understands that the relationship itself is more important than being right or wrong, which is why the word sorry rolls off the tongue when it is needed.

7) You make others happy

We all want to be happy in life.

For most of us, we strive to find out what truly makes us happy and then go on the hunt of fulfilling that dream.

For the pure soul, they seek to make those around them happy. This is how they achieve their own true happiness.

It’s this focus on others and what makes other people smile that truly separates those with a pure soul.

They always have time for others and are focused on doing the little things just to let others know how much they care.

8) You include everyone

At every stage of life, from childhood, through to the teen years and then parenthood and beyond, cliques are formed in various different ways, and people inevitably find themselves on the outside.

Well, not when they are around you.

You go out of your way to make sure everyone has a place and feels wanted in any social situation. It doesn’t matter whether or not you know the person, all that matters is that each and every person feels included.

This type of selfless act is indicative of a pure soul and the reason you will find so many people gravitate towards you in social situations.

You really do have so much to offer.

9) Anger is never lasting

Let’s face it, pure soul or not, we all get angry from time to time. It’s in our nature. Whether someone has hurt us intentionally, or hurt someone we love, anger is a perfectly acceptable emotion under a number of different circumstances.

The difference is, that someone with a pure soul doesn’t stay angry for long.

They allow the emotion to be and they process it, before moving on and letting it go.

If this is you, then you’re always the first to call after a fight. You’re always making excuses for people who don’t treat you the way you deserve.

The simple fact is, you can’t stay angry at anyone for long. It’s simply not in your nature. Nor will it ever be!

10) You forgive easily

Just like you can’t stay angry for long, you are also all too ready to forgive each and every time.

It doesn’t matter what has transpired between you and this other person. In your eyes, everything is able to be forgiven in time.

Even those who don’t deserve it.

A pure soul will see past the actions and intuitively forgive based on instinct.

It’s what they feel is right – no matter what others around them think.

You give everyone the benefit of the doubt and are always ready to hand out second chances.

This doesn’t mean you will forget how you have been hurt, it simply means you move on with love and kindness, which isn’t easy to do.

11) The glass is always half full

There are optimists and there are pessimists. There are also those who simply sit on the fence.

If you have a pure soul, then you always see the best in a situation. Whether it’s seeing the best in a person, or seeing the best in every day, it’s easy for you. It truly speaks to your positive outlook on life.

In your eyes, people can change. Situations can change.

By remaining positive day after day, you ensure positive changes are made each and every time. Let’s face it, life’s far too short to be seeing the worst in every situation.

12) You’re trustworthy

Do people constantly come to you for advice?

Do they spill their secrets without hesitation?

Do they tell you things they would never tell anyone else?

It’s safe to say they see you as a pure soul.

They no they can spill out their problems and issues and you will listen open-heartedly and without judgement.

They also know they can trust you not to gossip about them and spread false rumours, helping them feel safe while revealing their truths.

This is an extremely rare characteristic and your friends are lucky to have a person like you in their life.

You know the real meaning of a secret and would never betray anyone – friend or foe.

Secrets are safe with you.

13) You notice the small things

While others are busy looking at the bigger picture, you’re always honing in on the smaller details.

You’re the type of person who remembers everyone’s favourite flower.

You know the name of your friend’s sick Nan.

You remember the type of dress they wore to their wedding.

You know exactly what makes people smile.

It’s because you genuinely care. There isn’t a single fake thing about you.

You take in the smaller details because you know just how important they are to those around you.

You’re always willing to take pause and to soak up these smaller details, because the world never fails to amaze you.

It’s your simple way of giving back.

14) You empathise with others

It takes a special person to be able to step into someone else’s shoes no matter the situation.

While others are busy judging actions, you’re simply understanding where they came from.

This is a true sign of someone with a pure soul.

15) You’re always ready to share the love

If you need one more sign to convince you that you are indeed pure of soul, then it’s your love for love.

It doesn’t matter if you’re having the worst day of your entire life, you’re still ready to spread love and be kind to those around you.

It’s what you do.

It’s what comes naturally to you in all areas of life.

Put simply, you are the most authentic version of yourself possible, and you genuinely care for those around you.

You’re simply a one-in-a-million personality who deserves to be treasured.
