Why do we put people on pedestals? As a society and as individuals we idolize and elevate certain people. We want to hold them in a higher position, superior to ourselves and others.
Why do we seek a pedestal? And can the pedestal deliver what our fragile sense of self is always hungering for – to be seen, known, and recognized?
The pedestal cannot provide what we seek. It’s too small, too impermanent. It doesn’t hold the power we think it does. It’s never enough.
What pedestal are you seeking? What ladder are you climbing to get there? And is your ladder even leaning in the right direction.
Join me in this podcast episode as we take an honest look at people on pedestals, others and ourselves.
