Faith is a confident belief in the truth, or value something, someone or some idea. Everyone begins life by having faith in whoever is caring from them (parents usually).
Once childhood is past, everyone needs some sort of faith to get them through life, people try to find something or someone else to trust, like
· a relative
· or an idea
· a person
· a power outside themselves.
Faith, putting energy into trusting a thing or person helps cope with life's difficulties and disappointments; but of course, people can be conned, and people can be let down by those they put their faith in.
