When we are sad, we expect our beloved to tell us things that comfort us. We want them to say what we want to hear. When they don't, we think they are against us; but all they are trying to do is to help.
Shazzam1452, maybe you should let your friend decide what she wants by herself. I mean, give her some advice, of course, tell her what you think regardless of whether she gets mad or not. You should be careful, obviously, but after all you're just trying to help her. Maybe she cannot see it now, since she's going through really hard times. But she will in the future. Don't worry, just do your best to help your friend, let her know you're there for her and will always be. Whenever she gets mad, just make it clear that you're just trying to tell her what you think it's best for her. She shouldn't get mad at you

Tell her that you are trying to help her to get over pain and don't show any frustration upon her. Be patient with her. Perhaps she is moody and stubborn, understand her and give her a choice to decide what she needs and if some of her decisions are not ok, comment on that in a way that doesn't make her upset. You said she is a lovely person, so never break up this friendship as long as you find her lovely.

Tell me some thing,for how long you know your friend ? You said that she used to be a lovely person but lately she become a monetory orientated? If you know her very well, have you try to you find out why she changed or what made her to change like that ?
Every disease has a cause, and for every/almost every cause there is a cure. Try to find out what was the cause and you will find the cure very soon.
Don't get weak when your friend cries, its better she cries and get little hurt by your true advicies now THEN cring for the rest of her entire life.
