On Supporting Another Soul…

“Many people believe that support is something that you give to someone you feel sorry for or that it means propping up someone who would fail unless you were there to give him a boost. But that’s not the way I see it.   Support is the boost you can give someone who can help himself but who needs a partner to open a window or push aside a roadblock.”

— Dave Thomas, founder of Wendy’s

  1. “Support is the boost you can give someone who can help himself but who needs a partner to open a window or push aside a roadblock.”

    The part about this statement that doesn’t sit well with me is the word…need. The supporter may not be opening a window, or pushing aside a roadblock, but rather shining a light, helping to add “turbo” to the fuel that is already there.
