This clip is from an episode of the TED Radio Hour podcast, which looks in more detail at topics covered in popular TED Talks. This episode is about gratitude and kindness. For context, the speaker is talking about how people treated him after he failed during a game of baseball.

Sometimes we don't say to they they're something , we don't .
Sometimes we don't what to say to when they fail or they're with something , so we don't say .

…when they’re dealing with something

To deal with something means to manage or handle something or someone. It is usually something difficult or unpleasant, e.g. Sarah is very good at dealing with difficult customers. In this example, the speaker is talking about managing or processing his feelings of failure.

Notice the verb pattern here: to deal with sb/sth.
