In general - and this is the long view, looking backward, there is not much sympathy anywhere in the world. Like - If you need a helping hand there is one on the end of your arm. Histrionic people are quite unpleasant and difficult to work with. And as a therapist I learned that sympathy was never called for, while understanding and enabling the client to deal with problems, including disappointment, are good tools. Sympathy is a disabler. It is an addictive psychic drug.

As to getting upset, the only one who is ultimately responsible, and the only one who can do anything about it, is the one who is upset. Life is and ever shall be difficult. Accept that and then it is simply life.
