                                                                  Question:
                                                                   1) I have a tendency to retaliate if someone says something bad to me. I have heard in a lecture that 'If you retaliate you may please yourself but If you do not Retaliate you please Krsna'. However I am not able to practically apply it in my Life. Please suggest dome practical ways to overcome this tendency.
                                                                    2) I have a tendency to compare myself with others. If I see someone in a materially better condition I feel depressed. This tendency is automatic and I am not able to overcome it. Please help me.
