Q: What should we do if others take undue advantage of us? 
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: Don't let them take undue advantage! When you are fully aware, people cannot take undue advantage of you. If you go to sleep or are unaware, then the distinction between your pocket and theirs will be blurred, and they may put their hands in your pocket!You keep doing what you want. Then no one can humiliate you. If you give room for it, only then it becomes possible. People hold on to small things and then say they are humiliated. If some guests come to your home, and you forget to offer them some tea, they will get humiliated that you didn't respect them enough by not offering them tea.But you know that you did not mean any disrespect. You see, it is the same situation, but people view it differently.We should see the opposing view as well. We need to be broadminded, and look at our fellow human beings as equals.

Q: My wife was not cooperative and we had a fight. I stepped outside briefly, but by the time I got back, she hung herself and committed suicide. Now I feel guilty, that I could have stopped her somehow. How can I overcome this grief?
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: Whatever happened, don't sit and brood over it. Each moment is the start of a new life.Whatever happened, had to happen, don't sit and think I could have done this or that, it is of no use.Leave your burden, clear the mind, and move on.
