Dear Prasa,

There is always something you could learn from a bad experience. In your case you should learn the following.

1. Have the courage to speak up for yourself at the time of your need. Say 'no' to demands you cannot meet or do not wish to fulfill.

2. Learn to be more resourceful - see when you travel abroad or take up a new situation be aware of all local sources like embassies, police, law of the land etc.

3.Take full control of your life - I mean develop ambitions and aims in your life and follow it relentlessly.Do not let other people control you. Know your strengths,weaknesses and opportunities.

Wish you all the best ;-)
