Michael J. Formica says when we put someone on a pedestal…

“When we put someone on a pedestal, we are not doing that at all, but, rather, we are digging a pit for ourselves. In other words, they don’t move from the level playing field of social relationship, but we end up beneath it, by virtue of our own misguided hand. We diminish ourselves by idealizing another, and they are diminished because we see them as something that they are not.

– Michael J. Formica
