Sometimes in our quest to make everyone else happy we make ourselves miserable.

Mistakes that can make us unhappy!
1)CHANGING WHO YOU ARE TO SATISFY OTHERS.-No matter how loud their opnions are, others cannot choose who we are. The question should not be, "Why don't they like me when I'm being me?" It should be, "Why am I wasting my time worrying what they think of me.?" Keep moving forward with your life and love who loves you. Be happy. Be yourself. Life isn't about pleasing everybody. Do what you want in life.
2)THINKING YOUI ALREADY MISSED YOUR CHANCE.-Your life, with all it's ups and downs, has molded you for the greater good. Your life has been exactly what it needed to be. Don't think you've lost your time. It took each and every situation you have encountered to bring you to the current moment. And every moment of your life, including this one right now, is a fresh start. If you have the courage to admit when you are scared, the ability to laugh even as you cry, the nerve to speak up even if your voice is shaking, the confidence to ask for help when you need it, and the wisdom to take it when it's offered, then you have everything you need to get yourself to a better place.
3)OVERLOOKING WHAT YOU HAVE,AND YOU FOCUS ON WHAT YOU HAVEN'T.-Most people end up cheating on others and themselves because they pay more attention to what their missing, rather than what they have. Instead of thinking about what your missing, think about what you have that everyone else is missing.
4)CONSTANTLY SACRIFICING YOUR OWN HAPPINESS FOR EVERYONE ELSE.-Never let your own happiness wither away as you try to bring sunshine to others. Life is not about making others happy. Life is being honest and sharing your happiness with them.
And remember, life will never be perfect, no matter how hard we try. Even if you pour your heart and soul into it, you will never acheive a state of absolute perfection. There will always be days where nothing goes right. But as time rolls on you will learn that even the most imperfect situations can be made better with a little love and laughter.
A PERSON DOES NOT HAVE TO BE BEHIND BARS TO BE A PRISONER! People can be prisoners of their own concept, choices and ideas.
When you dream, dream big, when you think, think big, when you love, love truthfully. Happiness is a choice. There are no excuses for not trying to make the best of your life. THERE ARE NO EXCUSES FOR LIVING IN A WAY THAT CONSISTENTLY MAKES YOU UNHAPPY
The closest friend I ever had in my life told me she was giving up.
I hope you read this and find a way to smile again.
Crazy you are my friend, and always will be.

Well we all have our troubles but it sounds like your friend is depressed and unfortunately you can't do much about it except be a true friend.

Honestly life is too short to give a crap about what anyone thinks of you or to waste it on someone who cheats on you.

Life is what you make it!!
