Non-violence is the greatest Dharma; So too is all righteous violence.
They will also enjoy our goodwill and extract helps in different forms from us. But when we are in difficulties nobody will come forward to pacify us. We need not expect any help from anybody when we are in a miserable condition.
This can be put in another manner. When we weep nobody will join us, but when we laugh everybody will laugh with us.

There is a popular Malyalam song,from an old movie, that literally says this message. It says that when you are laughing thousands will laugh with you; but when you weep only your own shadow will be with you.
We have mostly fair weather friends. There will just a few who will be with us through thick and thin. They are our real friends. But when we point our fingers at others we should also make a self analysis, how we are- fair weather friends or all-weather friends.
While when we are sad or stressed, we will not share our emotions with anyone. Also, nobody would come to share our sorrow with us. This is the truth of life.
When we are sad, we are folded in ourselves, we are not in a state to reveal it to anyone. So, automatically we do not find our sadness worth sharing with anyone. There would some nice people who could come and ask you, and then you can try to open up to them.

Even this challenging situation would ease
Generally, we are all interested in sharing our happiness with others. So we share this with others and they will also feel happy. But we may not like much propaganda for our sorrows. So we may hesitate to share with all. We may share it with a few people whom we think as our friends and we try to get relief from that sorrow. But if we are not correct in understanding the best friend, we may not get the expected feedback from those with whom we have shared our sorrow. Then only we can understand who is our true friend and who is a friend only.
When we are happy and laughing, there are lots of people who gather around us to share our joy and some may even be envious of us within themselves. But, God forbid, when we are sad or an unfortunate event has befallen us, we have a few people who will always be around us to lend a shoulder to cry on and an arm to hold on to steady ourselves, these are true friends and wellwishers apart from family members. I think it is important for us in life to have people to laugh with us and it is even more important to have a close group of people who will be around to support us when we are crying.Moreover, when we are laughing, we'll always have people around us who may or may not be our true well-wishers.
