I thought that the idiom, "bring someone back/down to earth", meant taking someone off a pedestal, and seeing them for who they really are. For example:
She needs to bring him down to earth and see that he's an asshole.
But when I look it up in a dictionary, I don't get this definition. Instead, I find this.
Fig. to help someone face reality; to help someone who is euphoric become more realistic. (source)
Is my understanding also correct? Is there another way of saying what I want to say?
