"Many people believe that support is something that you give to someone you feel sorry for or that it means propping up someone who would fail unless you were there to give him a boost. But that's not the way I see it. Support is the boost you can give someone who can help himself but who needs a partner to open a window or push aside a roadblock."

- Dave Thomas (1932 - 2002)
American businessman and founder of Wendy's

Interesting point. The bottom line is the person you support has to want to help themselves or it means nothing.
