This collection of quotes are for those exact times when you don’t feel supported, by those that should be.
The feeling of not being supported by those around us can be both isolating and discouraging.
It’s a unique kind of heartache that comes from expecting encouragement from our friends, family, or colleagues, only to be met with indifference, jealousy or even opposition.
Yet, this is not the end of our journey. It’s often in the silence of support that we discover our own voice and strength.
It’s where we learn to fuel our passion from within and stand firm in our convictions.
