Doubt about others - non verbal communication often speaks volumes. The persons behaviour and response to your presence can either be positive or negative, and MAY cause you to doubt yourself as to why the behaviour you perceive or witness is not easy to interpret in every scenario, eg someone looking at you and deciding to punch you is an obvious extreme example.

Faith is something that can be dogmatic and isolating …. But also open to change. Extreme groups have tainted it for many, and you may put your faith in yourself or your abilities but then physical aging or injury can remove it just as easily as losing faith in a higher power….
