I noticed in one Of the examples above, the 59 year old woman, who was fed up either being sat on a pedestal or in the gutter. I have never heard anyone else but myself use that expression. I've explained to friends and psychologists for years, but I thought it was intirely my own expression. Now that I see it written so precisely in that example, and from a woman seemingly from the other side of the Atlantic ocean, I'm a little chocked, but also interested in getting to know a perspective from a professional expert. How come this feeling/description arise? Of either being on a pedestal or in the gutter (you might add, never just being...).
