Ep. 132 Putting People on Pedestals - Heidi Benjaminsen Coaching

Ep. 132 Putting People on Pedestals

We mentally put people on pedestals when we elevate everything about them to be amazing, perfect, the greatest of all time, etc.  This isn’t just admiring and respecting these people – this is expecting them to be perfect in all ways because they do excel in some ways.  When we do this, we create disconnection with these people we revere and we’re set up to always be disappointed – because no one is perfect.  Listen as Heidi explains why elevating people to mental pedestals is so damaging to relationships and how to equalize these relationships.  Because we all crave connection – and connection doesn’t take place on pedestals.
