I agree with giving your daughter the chance to talk about why she is upset. Getting it out should help. Don't try to convince her to feel differently. She has a right to feel how she feels. Just listen. Be clear on what is possible and what is not possible, but within those constraints, encourage her to think of things that would help her to feel better. You can be clear that you are not getting back together with her father, but give her a chance to say how she would like her life to be within the split.

Why don't you sit down and talk with her. Listen to what she's upset about and let her know the split was for the best.
