Say someone shouldn't be sad because someone else may have it worse is just like saying someone shouldn't be happy because someone else might have it better. Or as I have always said: knowing someone has no feet does not help keep my feet warm when I have no shoes [old saying about 'I was sad I had no shoes til I met a man who had no feet.']
