I know this doesn’t help _much_ right now but just a quick shout out that it takes very little to just tell someone you appreciate them, their work, their values, their thoughts, their company, or just their presence in your life.
Say it to your friends, coworkers, family, anyone. Compliment people. It’s a superpower that can change someone’s day, week or hell, year.
Hell, here I am STILL thinking about a single compliment someone gave me in 2011. It goes a long way.
