: : : I want to rejoice in your success and (oppsoite of rejoice) in your (opposite of success). I've tried many different words but none of them come off right. Can someone help me? Maybe there is a better way of saying the first part that will allow the second part to flow more freely...THANKS!

Offer solace... commiserate...share... sympathise... support you

in times of trouble/need... grief... failure

I think I'd go for a "take joy in" vs a "give support" construct. Best of luck
