Support is great if you have people who can give you support, but not everyone has the ability to be a support. Our experiences are the catalyst in us being able to support others.
People often find practical support easier than the emotional kind and although the practical side is the easiest form of support, it’s also the more time consuming. But although we all need emotional support, others helping us out in practical ways, can alleviate some of our stress.
If we are emotionally supported, we will be more able to act as a support to other people later on. Support is something we can all learn. Just because we’ve never had support, doesn’t mean we can never give support.
For those people, it may just take them longer to work through the logistics of how they can be a support.
