I ONCE had a teacher who said even the worst thing that could happen to you has a silver lining. You may not see it at the time but if you look hard enough for long enough, you’ll find it. We argued, of course, that a great many terrible things happen that couldn’t possibly have a silver lining. But he was adamant. Everything, he insisted, has something in it that can be good for you. I thought of this again when the recent unemployment figures were released. They certainly make for depressing reading and I know many would find it hard to see any kind of lining, much less a silver one. But, as some of the people we speak to on page 10 show, being unemployed can give you the push you…

say something nice

NOWADAYS compliments are considered superfluous and old-fashioned. Sadly these small everyday acts of goodwill take place less and less. It’s everyone for themselves, and the feelings and needs of others are looked upon as increasingly irrelevant to our lives. Cutting remarks are delivered with casual self-assurance and meant to take the wind out of another’s sails, and even considered the epitome of cool. Why is that? Everyone makes mistakes. Frankly, the biggest mistake anyone can make is to think they never make any. We all have insecurities and weaknesses, but we also all have strengths and talents. We should learn to be more tolerant, because it takes all sorts to make the world. A sincere compliment brings out the best in people and it makes you feel good to say something nice to someone.

STORIES OF LOVE AND COURAGE One just has to page through a few issues of YOU to find many examples of people who show unbelievable strength in times of adversity. Every time I read or hear about people with seemingly endless emotional reserves or who bravely bear what no human should have to endure, my heart breaks. It was heartwarming to read the article about Rachael and Cody Prescott (YOU, 25 July). While most parents would be devastated to learn their baby has Down syndrome, the Prescotts have celebrated the birth of their twin girls as a blessing and have accepted their so-called defect unconditionally. Hats off to a truly inspiring and selfless couple who display a maturity way beyond their years. IN AWE, EMAIL SUFFER THE CHILDREN Driving the same route to work and back…

wall of happy memories

The loneliest room in my home has to be my bedroom – the room I shared with my beloved husband for close to 50 years before his death five years ago. Staring at blank walls and missing him so much a brilliant thought of hope entered my mind. I collected all my photo albums stored away in cupboards and put together three huge collages of memories on my bedroom walls. So the backdrop to my bed became alive with happy, smiling faces, especially of my husband, family gatherings, campouts, children’s parties, happy special occasions and holiday jaunts. Now when I enter my room there’s a smile on my face as I gaze at all the happy faces smiling back at me. To all the lonely widows out there, try it. I guarantee it has…

in brief

Advice to AB, Durban (YOU Say, 18 July): I write my GP a note indicating that my condition is stable and that I need a prescription renewal for my five medications. I then drop it off at reception and collect the script the next day. For this I’m charged a nominal admin fee – a fraction of the cost of a doctor’s appointment. PRACTICAL PATIENT, SOMERSET WEST Do we pensioners have to pay doctors’ study fees forever and ever, amen? ANNE, NORTHPINE Has anybody else just woken up and decided to stay in bed all day with a large slab of chocolate and their favourite book and just let the whole world go by? Just curious.
