How many of us see one another for who we are?
Not many. We’re likely to jump to conclusions, and we often see what we want to see.
I don’t really put others on a pedestal, perhaps because I believe that we’re made up of parts of darkness and lightness. Sure, I get intimidated, awed and nervous around people I really respect, but when they make mistakes and fail (and they have done or will do so), I don’t reject them on the basis that they’re not supposed to fail because they’re so-and-so.
Others have put me on a pedestal in the past. Many times, I would say. Let’s just say that when I fell from the stand that wasn’t of my wish or my doing, nobody offered to walk with me while I limped away, revealed in my true, horrible form.
The thing is, I have never made any attempt to hide what I am. The people who put me up there in the first place were too preoccupied with themselves to notice that. I don’t wish them ill now, although I have to be honest and say that I can’t really bring myself to wish them well either.
I’m just grateful that I can feel saddened, and infinitely thankful that a chance has been given to me to learn some lessons from all these.

Due to the relative inconsistencies of various display monitors, the colours you see on your screen may not be an exact reproduction of the actual product. I strive for colour accuracy as much as possible, but product photos are intended as a guide only, and colour variation between the screen images and the actual products is not improbable.
