We put faith in people when we expect them to perform, behave or give us something in the future. This is a set up for disappointment and conflicted relationships.
When we are honoring our present-moment choice to relate with a person, no faith in that person is required.
To honor what we are choosing now is only a matter of giving up expectations in the moment they cross our awareness.
Giving it up happens naturally when we recognize every expectation for what it is – a set-up for suffering.
