    The sentence could use a comma. (And some compassion!)
    Thanks :). Just to be clear, when you mentioned about compassion were you talking about the whole quotation or just about "Anyway,chill". Is the sentence "Anyway,chill" inappropriate to say to someone who had had a bad day.

    I have no idea what the relationship is between the people.

    If it were me, I'd prefer to hear "I'm sorry you're so upset but let's hope for the best" instead of a statement that says "Get over it."

    But this is a language forum, not a counselor's office for relationship building.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
