As they saying goes: never mind

Maansa myynyt. One has sold one's land.
If your friend has sold his land, he may have failed, and he could use some warm words to comfort - for example the following phrases:

Sattuu sitä paremmissakin piireissä. It hurts also in better perimeters, or it happens also in better circuits.
A sentence that you can use to comfort when something has gone wrong: it can happen to anyone.

Antaa piut paut. To give pius and paus.
You can give pius and paus to something, and it means that you don't let it bother you.

Viis'veisata. To five-sing.
You don't need to five-sing about the bad things, i.e. you don't need to care about them.

Viitata kintaalla. To refer with a glove.
In some cases it's ok to refer with a glove for the sorrows, in other words, it's ok to ignore the worries.

Häntä pystyyn! Tail upwards!
Cheer up!

Ei auta itku markkinoilla. Crying doesn't help in the marketplace.
You shouldn't get stuck into your sorrows and whine for too long time, because crying doesn't help in the marketplace.

Eteenpäin, sanoi mummo lumessa. Forward, said the grandma in the snow.
Get over it and move on. Grandma knows.

The mother of all the comfort and cheer up songs. The Finnish version is not as comforting at all.
