My parents started fighting and now I feel sad.

It's simple, really. Human compassion is such a rarity these days that unfortunately at first you'll be met with a bit of resistance until others see that you're actually being legitimately sincere.  You'll have to learn to realize that it's not something against you, but that the field you're working in, with trying to help people and with empathy that is, is an unfortunately very very small, kind of rare, dying sort of a field of study. It's a bit ironic if you think about it. People truly aren't that much different than other animals, but because our species is sentient, we so desperately want to draw a line between us and other animals. It's ironic, because people have pets, right? I've had 5 or 6 cats of my own, a couple dogs, and a snake in my past-- all of which I cared for quite deeply as my own kin. Finding what to say is the easy part, the hard part is typically finding how to say it...
"Of Fire in Nature, Love in Spirit unkenned,
Life, hath no axle, no spring, and no End"
I often make errors through the way I say things. A rule I have recently invented for myself is that if I don't know what to say, it's probably best that I say nothing. Cos when I force it, that's when I say something that makes me sound stupid or causes offence.
To quote a popular werewolf film - 'Everyone's cursed.  It's called life'
