Yes, there are many types of support. There are many reasons why we choose to support or ignore a person’s movement. I’ve noticed some things along the years when it comes to support. Humans are jealous. Humans are competitive. Most humans have a scarcity mindset and because of that, your neighbor may not want to support you because they feel they’ll be elevating you to a spot that’s intended for them. They lack understanding and it’s ok.
Some people won’t support you because they’re jealous of you. Some people won’t support you because they feel you’re so talented you don’t need their support. Some people won’t support you because they’re convinced you’ll make it in due time. Most people support you when they feel it won’t make a difference one way or the other. Most people will support you until you pass them in life. Know that and be ok with it. You’ll get there in God’s timing. Be patient and enjoy the climb.
Don’t worry about who will support you. Just do the work. What’s for you is for you and you’ll get it when you’re supposed to. If a person isn’t supporting you for a selfish reason, that’s their harvest that will be ruined. Just keep being the best you can be and let the rest fall into place.
