Light of the Lamp
When we come across someone who is faced with a difficult situation because of which there is worry, we too usually tend to think about it. Instead of helping the other person to be free from worrying, we too begin to worry. This doesn't help either of us in anyway but only adds to the negativity of the situation.
We need to develop such benevolent feelings for the one who is going through the situation that the power of our positive feelings will spread to them too. It will act like the light of the lamp, which helps to dispel the darkness around. Only when there is positivity in the mind will they be able to think of some solution.
I have noticed that some friends don't want the positive and just want someone to complain with. I want to be known as the person sharing light, so make a decision what you want your behavior to demonstrate to your friends like that.
