• This has happened to me several times. I have had a couple of people on a pedestal and then they disappointed me. I suppose in the end I would rather know the truth.
  • That's why I don't put people I don't know on a pedestal. I mean, I do admire a few celebrities or some people in the news. But the people I admire most are people like my sister Maggie, who survived losing her two daughters and her first husband in a fire in 1981. She's been through hell and back on many occasions...too many to list here. Through it all, she's remained sane, sweet, faithful, funny, and calm. She is truly a blessing in my life.
  • I know their faults and the truth about them. I hold them high and always will.
  • The people I admire, I admire because of the way they have handled their "warts"...
  • Left alone and keep admiring. I'm for the "leave well enough alone" motto.
  • I have not only admired and respected someone in spite of their warts, but because of them. If you don't really know who someone is, how do you know if they are worthy of your respect and admiration?
  • It is the qualities of a person I admire. Their private lives are not important to me unless I look up to them for their relationship skills. I've never been into hero worship.
  • This is a tough one for me. Most people I admire don't let me down. But on the few occasions they have, I realize nobody's perfect. And it kind of makes me feel like maybe my imperfections are a little less horrific? But I think I'd rather know if there's a possibility I could help them overcome them.
  • probably be left alone
