How can I mend a girl’s broken heart?

1

One of my closest friends just broke up with her boyfriend just 2 days ago and now she is having emotional stress about it because she didn’t know how to cope up with this kind of situation. So the reason why they broke up is because they got tired of all the useless fights like for example arguing over 3rd party people. But they we’re already in a relationship for over a year now, and that 1 year had the their most amazing and fun adventures together as a couple but ended because of the useless fights they had, and for her it, she felt like she was being choked by all these fights and so she decided to end because she can’t take it anymore. She de-activated her facebook account after she chatted me yesterday, I guess she needed time on her own to think about things. But what I wanted to do as “a best friend since high school” is to help her out and give her a helpful advice because she tends to be so emotional about break-ups until her life becomes difficult. I can easily call her and I know she’ll pick up I just want a very concise advice, i’m not that good at giving advices to the broken hearted, but what do you think I should advice her? It would really be helpful :)

Help your friend to look at the positive sides of being single. There are lots of brightsides of being single, such as not getting into complicated fights. I can't name a lot at the top of my head. Try figuring out some for your friend. Also, try arranging hang outs with your friend, such as going to Disneyland together in order to remove your friend's burden and distress. If she can handle this, try hanging out together, along with other friends. The more the merrier, and it will be so beneficial if one of the friends you get to hang out with is a comedian. I'm sure he/she will make your friend laugh! Hang outs are fun, but they are not guaranteed to erase her problems completely. Helping her get back on her track might take a while. it's going to be a little bit stressful, depending on how you handle situations like this. Be patient and understand what she is going through. You wouldn't know, she might be thankful for having you.

We can all relate. I've been in a bad break up before, sometimes we get so clouded in our emotions we don't know what's good for us. If she was in multiple fights to where it she couldn't take it anymore, she did the right thing. Remind her why it ended because if there were a lot of crying, heartache, trust issues, etc. maybe things turned out for the better. Tell her you will always be around for her and that she also has friends and family to lean on and that care for her as well. Time does heal all wounds and best of luck.

I would just comfort her. Be there for her and let her know you're there to talk to if she needs anything, because that's what a girl needs at that moment. Go over and hang with her and make her laugh, even if it's watching a stupid movie or something fun. Make her want to go out more and have fun. :)
