Many people out there don’t feel the need to show support to their friends in their course of work because they don’t think their help can make any difference. They underestimate the power of moral and emotional support in someone’s career. A monetary offering isn’t the most important type of support there is. As a friend, you’re one of his support systems and your opinion would surely matter to him.
It’s normal to feel not as excited and devoted as they would to their line of work, but you can make a bigger impact if you would try to be a part of their process instead of only the end result. Whether your friend is a beginner, intermediate, or an expert at what he’s doing, he needs all the support he can get from his friends, and that’s where you come in. If your friend is a singer, go to his gigs.
