Paranoid feelings, where you have the sense that other people are out to get you, or are not to be trusted in any respect, are deeply distressing. They make you feel anxious and insecure, and like you must always be watching your back. It’s uncomfortable to feel like this even when there is good cause. But it’s even more frightening when you realise that your fears and suspicion are – in reality – unfounded.
Where paranoid feelings come from
Paranoia can have various contributory causes. It’s a symptom of some psychiatric disorders, for instance. If you experience other distressing symptoms with it, such as hearing voices, it’s essential to get professional help as well as seeking to help yourself by using our Stop being paranoid download.
You don’t have to have a psychiatric problem to experience paranoid feelings, however. All of us are susceptible to paranoia to some degree, and it helps to understand why this is.
The role of emotion in generating paranoid feelings
When we are anxious and insecure, for whatever reason, it puts us in an emotionally aroused state – as if we are permanent ’hyper alert’. In such a state, we are ’on the lookout for trouble’. This means we pay attention to anything which looks like it might be evidence of ’trouble’, and tend to ignore things which indicate that we don’t really have anything to worry about.
It’s like having a kind of tunnel vision, where you can only see trouble.
If you think back over your own experience, you will have noticed times when you got worked up about something, and interpreted matters in an overly negative way. Later, when you had calmed down, you realised that you had over-reacted. This common experience shows how important it is to be able to calm your emotions so that you can objectively assess what is going on and react appropriately.
Overcoming paranoia can transform your life
When you can calm your emotions and stop feeling paranoid so often, you will notice an improvement in your relations with other people.

This will allow you to feel much happier and calmer in your dealings with others.
