17 Sincere Photos Showing What True Support Really Is

Different TV shows and books keep telling us that the secret to happiness is having the right people around us. The people from this article only prove this to be true — they try so hard to help others that they definitely deserve their own superhero cape.

We at Bright Side are not only inspired by them, but we also try to learn from their examples.

“My brother made dinner for my boyfriend and me for our 4-year anniversary. Can we just appreciate the fact that he’s 14 years old and cooks better than any restaurant?”

“My dad used to get so mad every time my mom would come home with a new coffee mug (she likes to collect them) and her new boyfriend literally built her a wall to display her collection.”

“Today is my birthday. My coworkers know I’m on a diet but I told them they were more than welcome to still get a cake for themselves to enjoy. Instead, this was waiting for me when I got to work. It truly made my day and was quite delicious!”

“I wore a shirt with Ron Swanson on it to my grandpa’s house and he jokingly asked why I didn’t have a shirt with his face on it so I got one!”

“A guy used his metal detector at a playground to collect small pieces of metal that could be harmful to children. He makes a few dollars in coins on the way but showed us he mostly finds junk he picks up for their safety.”

Mothers don’t need a lot to be happy.

“My mom asked for a new kitchen, and my dad put in some work!”

“He was crying because he couldn’t reach a bug on the ceiling, so I helped him!”

“I had to hide books from my first husband, he hated to see me learn anything new or spend money. My second husband built me a bookcase and has another one planned. Never settle. Move on and find someone who appreciates you for who you are, not for who they want you to be.”

“My grandma celebrated her 80th birthday this past weekend, and a friend of my uncle’s showed up wearing the sweater my grandma had made him when he was a teenager to show her he still had it.”

This is what women’s support looks like.

“My grandma didn’t want me to get a tortoise. I came home and my tortoise was wearing a watermelon sweater.”

“A school in my town has a ’share bin’. Students who buy lunch may place unwanted and unopened food on this ice tray. If other students are still hungry after they finish their own lunch, they may choose one item from the share bin. This simple process reduces waste and makes tummies full.”

“This is Walter. Walter waits by the front gate every Monday for his friends, the trash collectors, who always shower him with love and treats. 11/10 good boy!”
