People will have all the sympathies in words. And nothing to do with action. Your colleague will have all the sympathies that you work very hard. But he will not share your work.
Our friend will have all the sympathies that your parents aren’t great parents. But he won’t accommodate you in his home forever. Your friend will have all the sympathies about your spouse ill-treating you or the torture your in-laws or relatives give you but will never take the stand to protect you or stand by you or if you are wrong to make you realize either.
Society will have all the sympathies for the poor but won’t feed a poor hungry child. So finally, everyone is a fence seater. So, wake up fight your battles yourself.
Support yourself if, your conscience says you are right in an unbiased way. And correct yourself if your conscience says you are wrong. Nourish a conscience which won’t be biased by you. Take opinions don’t allow others to take your decisions and set you out alone in implementing them
