Disappointment over something important that one was waiting and hopping for is very hard and for some people it's a shattering experience .. How to help it depends on many factors, first if there's anything that you can really change in this person's life even if it's not as good as what they were hopping for .. in most cases you have nothing that you can do but to be supportive, try to get them busy with other things, motivate them to start anew, the first shook takes some time to get over but afterwards life must go on and it helps to know that there are people who care, so sometimes just being there for them and have a positive attitude is all we need to do to help.

sometimes what people want isnt what is good for them. Sometimes even when you dont get what you want, it may be a blessing. I dont really believe that its always an accident. Maybe the LOrd has his reasons why it took a different course.
