Some of you probably clicked on this post because you found yourself intrigued by the title and others of you clicked asking yourself the question, “I wonder if I suffer from Paranoia?” Read through the simple definition of Paranoia below:
Paranoia 1.baseless or excessive suspicion of the motives of others. 2. a tendency on the part of an individual toward excessive or irrational suspiciousness and distrustfulness of others.
Often times people become so consumed with what people think and trying to please people that they truly suffer from paranoia. All of their thoughts are from the lens of wondering how others will receive or perceive what they’re doing. What do my boss, co-workers, neighbors, friends or people that I don’t even know, think about me? The reality is that people really don’t spend much time worrying about you because they’re too busy worrying about themselves.
Nobody cares, so drop the baseless suspicion and worrying about what others think.
