Back away from the Pedestal

Today I would like to write a post about putting a person on a pedestal. I don’t want to contradict myself there are times where admiring a person and looking up to them is very beneficial, but that is not the scenario I’m talking about. I have been thinking about this for quite some time and I have realized that when I look up to someone it is because I value something in them that I didn’t value in myself (at the time because she is all that.. okay! ) Sometimes those emotions can be connected to a healthy reason or unhealthy reason. I’m going to leave the connection up to you to break down I can only speak for myself when I say that when I put someone on a pedestal it’s for things that I feel like I may be lacking. I am a work in progress and I connect to people who are currently living life to the fullest or trying their best. I also vibe with people who are putting out great energy. My findings were when I stopped putting people on a pedestal and started focusing on myself I took away a lot of disappointment and resentment I was putting myself through. It just isn’t fair to be mad at that person who probably didn’t even know they were on such a high level in your mind. You have to find those things out of YOURSELF. Stop looking to other people to justify it for you because if you don’t you’re going to wind up with lots and lots of disappointment and is going to hurt because you’re projecting what you want and not what’s logically for the situation. Trust me I know.



A work in progress
