Pinky Reddy’s better-your-life solutions
Stylish ‘n’ sensible, the very savvy industrialist Pinky Reddy helps you celebrate life!
I have a good lifestyle, but invariably I compare my life with others which puts me in a bad mood. What should I do to control this feeling?
Sabrina Khanna, Mumbai
Sabrina, that’s the worst place to be in. One should be content with what one has. By comparing, you are messing your mind. Always look at people who are less blessed than you and be thankful.
My husband and I want to shift to a new home. He wants to look for a place in our current locality, I want a place which is close to my work so that I can reach home quickly and take care of our child. He doesn’t seem to understand this. How should I get this through his thick skull?
Anjana Reddy, Hyderabad
You do need to put some sense into your husband’s mind, Anjana, and explain the necessity to be home longer for the future of your child. Your child will need your care.
You have not mentioned the distance from your home to your husband’s place of work. The only reason I think your husband doesn’t want to move is because he must be having friends in your present locality!
My sister’s friend thinks she is very beautiful and is constantly bullying her boyfriend about his looks. He, on the other hand, is unable to stand up for himself and continues to be with her in spite of her behaviour. I don’t know how to resolve the situation without getting my sister into trouble. Please help.

Ayesha, there seems to be no issue as he is sticking by her even though she is bullying him. Maybe he is obsessed with her. I advise you not to interfere unless he asks for help.
