that sounds a bit better. at least when you do that you aren’t telling people what to do and how they should feel. that’s the big problem with most of those situations. just a compliment in isolation seems okay to me. if it’s in the context of a big “compassion alert” type thing, however, it might just add to that person being overwhelmed.
In these kinds of situations, i think the best you could do is just check out their about and whatever bio stuff they’ve posted, their interests, etc., and see if they are the kind of person that you could be friends with. Then follow them if you want to. Develop a real friendship over time and support whatever they choose to do. Because these people don’t need 1000s of random strangers passing by with platitudes— they need friends who care about and understand them.
