A collection of support quotes inspiring you to lift other people and to not be afraid to ask for help.

Supporting one another is vital in helping you live a happy and meaningful life. It’s important to reach out to our family, friends and loved ones to help them be strong and let them know we care about them.

You may not always know the right thing to say or the right thing to do to help them but the important thing is you show up, be there for them, and sometimes, the best thing that you can do is just to listen.

Also, you must forget, that while it’s important to support other people, asking for help and needing support is also just as important.

Remind yourself that when you’re ready to let other people in, there is no shame in asking for help and in opening up.

We have gathered the best support quotes from various sources to inspire you and give you some encouragement.
