...to be sympathetic

 It is not easy to be sympathetic and kind to all people all of the time .

But you can try to understand their point of view.

RE: ...to be sympathetic

In fact, one must know how to live with everyone, even if they are different ... We need to understand other people.

RE: ...to be sympathetic

In my point of view, we need to understand what they really need. Sometimes people don't really understand what they really need, but we have to understand the trully necessity first. For example: the people said that they need money, but actually they need ability and support to get job and make money. So in this case, we can help them to improve their ability.

RE: RE: ...to be sympathetic
I agree with you. Sometimes people need to be listened and then one might understand their reasons to be as the way they are. However, we live in a very hectic life, than usually we don't bother for others only when we need something from them. Specially negative people is so difficult to help! :(

“Understanding of our fellow human beings...becomes fruitful only when it is sustained by sympathetic feelings in joy and sorrow.”

RE: ...to be sympathetic
verily true! but a person should try to do that. Anyhow this sentence is very precious and it can change the whole life of a person.

RE: ...to be sympathetic
Yes, I definitely agree this point. I mean that we should care more about others, not always ourselves.
