    As we care for them and love them, love brings trust along with it in our relation with them. No matter how or who they are or how they react or live, your love for them will always make you trust them.

    Hopefully we dont.

    Of course its believable they may believe in truth ,while not aspiring to it.in which case we choose to be optimistic. Just one view of course.

    Sometimes a little faith in someone is like starting a snow ball down the hill. If the snow sticks, you get a big old snowman. All big old snowmans, were little snowballs once!

    For me this goes to the root of socialization. I try so hard to see the good in people. Unfortunately more often than not I'm disappointed.

    I would say because maybe we see something in them that they may not see. If we believe in them maybe they will start to believe in themselves.

    That is a great question, Maybe we do because we have to.

    Because people who don't believe in themselves can only get worth from convincing you to believe in them. Hence, they have a lot of practice.....
