Need help getting over a breakup that doesn’t involve crying a lot or eating copious amounts of ice cream? Perhaps it’s time to slide into Rihanna’s DMs.

Struggling with heartbreak and looking for wisdom, Rihanna fan @WaladShami reached out to the Barbadian singer. “How did you get over your first heartbreak? I’ve been struggling,” he quizzed via direct message. Amazingly, after a few hours, Riri replied.

“Just believe that the heartbreak was a gift in itself!” replied the self-anointed bad gal and sage. “Cry if you have to, but it won’t be forever! You will find love again, and it will be even more beautiful!” Signing off, she added: “In the meantime enjoy all that YOU are!!!!”

Speaking to Buzzfeed, the fan explained how the interaction came about. “It was my first relationship ever and they ended it with me in January, but it’s been really hard for a multitude of reasons,” he said. “I reached out to Rihanna because she’s given me advice many times — she’s wise ‘n shit. Lol.”

Wise ‘n shit, indeed. Stay strong, dude.
