I’ve been thinking about how over the course of our lives we sometimes put people on pedestals. It’s such a bad idea.
The person on the pedestal has no way to go but down. The person who holds someone in that high place is setting himself up for disappointment by holding someone to impossibly high standards.
Maybe we should welcome flaws with open arms, develop our opinions with our own minds, love without unreasonable expectations.
It’s so much healthier.
