I wonder what phrasal verb/expression/idiom do you normally use in English for giving someone hope?
Please have a consideration in my examples:
A) He is a very energetic and positive individual. He always helps his surrounding people. When I divorced I was very discouraged. He gave me a lot of hope. I'll never forget that.
B) Yeah, I know him well. He always gives hope to people.
Are the defined sentences above natural?
Also, how can I thank someone who has been very hope-giving towards me? Can I say:
- Thank you for giving me hope.
