Support, What Does That Mean Exactly?

Support, What Does That Mean Exactly?

Support, Support, Support…

Anyone ever see those memes like…

I often have random thoughts, just like the rest of America. I was thinking…we say things like…

“People aren’t supporting us”

“I wish I had support”

“They aren’t going to start supporting me until I make it big”

And so on…And so on…I think y’all get the point…

One day as I was having this internal conversation with myself I had to ask myself, what is support? Does everyone’s support look the same? What does support look like? Is giving money support? Is showing up support? Is saying congrats support? 

What is it exactly? So here is what the definition says…

Support: Give assistance to, especially financially; enable to function or act.

So after reading that, I had to reconsider what I considered as support. Anyone who is acting upon helping you in any capacity is supporting you. The people who “like” your social media post and the people who click the links to your website are supporting you. Those numbers and analytics matter, even if they aren’t making a purchase from your business or even if they aren’t showing up at your events, it doesn’t mean people are not supporting. 

So what I want you all to consider is the various ways people support. Support can be an act of assistance which can be several things. 

Today’s post was pretty short but the point was to get you all to understand what support is and to help you think twice before you say someone doesn’t support you.
