There's no such thing as just "be encouraged"

You can only effectively encourage someone who you think is capable of something- capable of steadfastness in face of difficulty, capable of overcoming difficulty and doing something. Capable of cooking well, loving others well, building useful things, studying amd passing an exam.

"You'll be right mate" rings unbelievably hollow when it comes from a church-aunty who thinks you can't even look after yourself let alone climb the career ladder or lead a bible study.

If you want to encourage someone, get to know the things they're capable of first. Then you will be able to encourage them.
