Moral Support?

What the hell does that mean? I know it is different then physical support. I know it is way different then spousal support, but how Is it different from emotional support? Where you are helping someone through sorrow or worry by offering comfort? When you are giving me emotional support what are you really giving?

I supposed you could be giving me a hand on not stealing or applauding that I haven't whacked off in a few weeks...but do we really talk about and show support for stuff like this? I guess it depends on what your morals are and who you are supporting...

Somewhere at the base of this question is a thesis on what a moral really is....I just haven't dug that deep yet.

What is moral support? How is it different from emotional support? Really I am asking...

It's the same thing in my opinion and there is no way you haven't whacked off in weeks.

Maybe it's not moral support but morale suppose and really you're just helping someone keep the faith.

I think we often use emotional and moral support interchangeably, which mucks things up.

I'd go with emotional support being when someone helps you keep your emotions in check. If you are feeling sorry for yourself, someone helps you see the good in you.

Moral support is needed for people like me whose morals are hanging by a thread. We need someone to tell us that what we are doing is wrong. However, I tend to hang with people with similar morals so I don't think I get too much support. For instance, I'd tell you to whack off till your hand is cramped. It feels good so why the hell not?
