I think we forget sometimes that people are human, especially the ones we are infatuated with. Whether it's Ryan Gosling or a girl you envy in math class, we tend to glamorize a lot of people. Because of this, we lose sight of their humanity. We forget they make mistakes, they hurt, and they fear as we do. Essentially, they are not perfect. But, we hold them to unrealistic expectations of what WE think they should live up to. And when they don't, we lash out or worse, get disappointed in them.
"What a treacherous thing to believe that a person is a more than a person."
It is treacherous because is it truly fair? Our rose colored glasses get a bit foggy, and we blame someone else for it? No, it's not fair.
So please remember no one is better or less than what you are. We are all human just trying to find a place in this crazy world.
