Hi,

So one of my best friends has recently has broken up with her long-term boyfriend of 5 years. As her best friend shes turning to me for advice and support. I have never experienced a break up myself. I was wondering if any of you had any life advice that I can pass on?

All the best, Leia

I believe that being a good listener without really giving advice can really help a lot. 

Happy creating!

Try to get her mind off of it and do something else! Even if its just watching a funny movie at home.

Remind her to let it take time and not try to avoid being sad. It will get better, usually much better. Every breakup is a step towards finding the perfect match.
