In honor of Random Acts of Kindness Day, we asked people to share words of encouragement for a stranger. In exchange, they got a motivational message from someone else.

There are very few better ways to brighten someone’s day, than with kind words. And no better place to get kind words, than from peers!

Peer support and words of encouragement can turn someone’s day around. When we see how easy it is to support others, we’re also inspired to be kinder to ourselves.

Kindness is contagious, and random acts of kindness make everyone happier. So if you need a boost, consider giving and getting words of encouragement in realtime, 24/7, and anonymously in a peer support chat.

Getting Words of Encouragement In A Peer Support Chat

From Supportiv’s always anonymous users, how it felt to give and get words of encouragement in a peer support chat:

“100% it made me feel needed and accepted.”

“The people I spoke with had some very helpful insight. We took turns talking about our struggles and felt genuine support.”

“It felt like writing a letter with all my thoughts while the letter responded with words of encouragement.”

“I met people who understood and cared about each other even though they never met. It gave me hope.”

“I am extremely grateful. I felt heard and listened to and supported. I feel significantly better and even got to help and support others when I started feeling better.”

If you ever need some motivational words of encouragement on-demand, you have somewhere to go 🙂
