do you get paranoid sometimes?

sometimes, i wake up and i get scared about how the day will end, how the day will turn out. embarassing as it may seem, i have to admit that i am a bit paranoid. i am paranoid about lots of things which result in me being a pessimist. i have a lot of "what ifs" running through my mind and that is the main reason why i become stressed. my rationale is that i am paranoid because i am a perfectionist. i want everything to be in place and i am scared to find the result if things wouldnt be perfect. i know that its not healthy and im trying to balance my positive and negative thoughts so that i can become a more productive and cheerful person, without thinking about the worst case scenarios everytime. :) what about you? do you become paranoid sometimes?

I am paranoid also! I always think to my self when ever you hear people who where in like a shooting or a fire or something that was really bad. They always say they never thought it would happen to them. Their day started as a normal day as always. Then that one second changed their life for ever. I always think that all the time. I am always like omg my day is normal what bad thing is going to happen to me. I get scared at times and i don't even want to leave my house. I try to NOT think about that stuff but i can't help it. I am always like what if what if what if. My friend is like that also so when we are together we come up with stories and scenarios for like everything. It is kind of sad actually.
