Are you part of someone’s support system?

Are you part of someone’s support system?

Chances are good that you form a part of someone’s support system. You may even be a part of the support system for multiple groups of people. You can be supporting friends, family, colleagues, or even strangers.

What does it actually mean to be part of someone’s support system?

You may be providing people with emotional support, advice, or companionship.

While it is true we all support our friends and family to some degree, there are some people who find themselves more involved in providing emotional support, advice and companionship to others. It’s these people that everyone has an inclination to go to when they need to talk or need help with trying to understand what’s going on in their life.

That’s someone like you.

You may have a natural affinity for understanding people, and your empathy makes you more likely to seek out people who may need comforting, are in distress, confused, or alone and in need of a friend.

It’s this level of interest you have for people, and this affinity that makes people around you know that they can trust you, open up, and turn to you when they need help.

You likely provide this support without really thinking too much about it. This support is enough for most situations, but there’s only so much you can help with when someone has more serious problems, such as addiction, is self-destructive, or is depressed.

It’s when you feel you have reached your limit of understanding and ability to help that you may formalise this interest in understanding and helping people by furthering your education and maybe even pursuing a career in a field suited to your affinity for helping people.
