  1. Time heals most wounds, for now it might be a good idea to just be a shoulder to cry on and an ear for her to vent

  2. Try showing her the things in life she can look forward to. She will need her time to grieve and give her the space and time she needs for that. But be there to show she’s not alone. Get her pursuing her hobbies, passions, to ensure she’s not left alone brooding. Hopefully, time will heal her heart ache and she can move on with lessons learnt.

  3. First and foremost, give her a makeover. Ask her to change her hairstyle, her wardrobe and do all those things which she wanted to during the relationship and couldn’t. Travelling should be on the list second. Then, if she’s interested, get her enrolled in some activity/course.

  4. Travelling is the best healer of a broken relationship. Try sending her on a holiday with close friends. The more noisy and distracting the surrounding around her, the quicker would she be able to move on.
