The hardest thing about helping a friend is being sure that you’re really right (and not right in your worldview and goals, but right in terms of theirs). If you just have different goals, show respect. If something real’s going wrong, here’s a card on that.
It’s hard because she’s thinking emotionally.
Don’t start with blurting out solutions. First you need to get her to agree there’s a problem.
If she says “it’s okay” or “there’s nothing I can do”, try staging an “intervention” with friends & family. Ask her why most people say it’s not okay & there are things to do.
