I have been called this and it makes me so uncomfortable. I understand that it is meant to be a compliment, but it removes my humanity. It says “I see you as otherworldly and above,” which sets up unrealistic expectations about me and how I interact with the world. It is a trap wearing the clothes of a compliment.
Thank you for your vulnerability and honesty in the face of something so difficult and trying. Thank you for sharing your story so that others may feel less shame in theirs. Thank you for not giving up. Please know that this moved me to tears, and I am feeling so much compassion and tenderness toward you and your husband right now. ❤️
