In addition to listening, offer practical advice for the situation your friend is in. Avoid blanket statements, such as, "I know how you feel," or "This is behind you, and it's time to move forward." Instead acknowledge the situation, as uncomfortable as it might be, thereby opening the conversation. Provide practical advice from the heart that is genuine without hiding your emotions.
