I appreciate you

“I appreciate it.”

It’s a nice statement.

Unfortunately, it’s overused.

And it doesn’t let them know what you appreciate.

After all, you appreciate them.

Instead, consider, “I appreciate you.”

A colleague said it to me towards the end of last year.

In the moment, it was exactly what I needed to hear.

My mood lifted, and I was energized for the rest of the day.

Try it the next time you want to express your gratitude to someone.

It might be precisely what they need to hear.
