    My friend got two rejections from conservatoires she applied to. One of those was Glasgow, which she had her heart set on and it's crushed her to not be accepted after she got quite far in the audition process. She just seems really down at the minute and I have no idea how to cheer her up... Reminding her that she still hasn't heard back from a couple doesn't seem to help as she now thinks she won't get into any
    How would you go about it if it was your friend?

    I thought this was about getting rejected on a date...

    You just need to tell her her that everything will be fine and to stay positive and to try harder, just encourage her to stay strong and keep going.

    Truthfully, there probably isn't anything you can say to cheer her up at this point. She feels hurt and, of course, rejected. All you can do is check in on her and let her know you're there for her. You really don't have to say anything but just be present. Take her for a coffee or to a movie.... or any fun activity that might give her mind a break. Yes, life will be good for her again but right now she has to go through the grieving process.

    I've probably posted it in the wrong category. That's great advice, thanks

    Thankyou I'll try that
