North Americans and Europeans know that Mr. Lee orchestrated a miracle. Under his visionary watch, a backwater rump of the Malaya Federation blossomed into one of the wealthiest and most dynamic places on Earth.
To deal with toxic people effectively, you need an approach that enables you, across the board, to control what you can and eliminate what you can't. The important thing to remember is that you are in control of far more than you realize.
But there's still a lot, scratch that, there's everything to be said for real human connection, face to face, breathing the same air in the same space. A space where all the senses feed your positive intuition not just a random set of images feeding your fear (if you're Lycra man).
I'd like to start a new Facebook meme: Tag five people whose posts you're envious of in today's newsfeed.

There's nothing to be happy about -- no feel-good takeaways -- when a middle school girl gets insulted by a man and has to speak up for him so he can continue a baseball career no one gives a fuck about.
