Whenever I am around other people I have a tendency to act like they maybe out to get me. It's not being hurt or bullied that bothers me. It's more the idea of someone accusing me of doing something wrong to them or being told off by everyone. I can't get rid of the feeling either I think about it constantly even when I'm doing my job driving alone in the middle of the night when no one is around i feel like people are still there and being critical of me.

Like co workers at a job not liking you and trying to get you in trouble all the time when you haven't done anything.

I'm sorry you're feeling that way. i currently still have a what-if worry cycle about a situation so i can relate to you in a way. i can also relate in a way that i once went to a gate of a condo and i was holding things and i said 'thanks' when the guy opened the door for me but it was a very low and quick voice and then he said 'you're welcome' in a way expecting me to say thank you like I'm rude and then i got angry after and yelled 'I did say thank you!' but some people are like that and i didn't think the guy was bad so I'm not that angry about it anymore. in fact, he didn't say anything and i don't know if he heard me so i forgive.

At my former jobs, whenever somebody would go into my boss's office and shut the door, I was 90% sure they were complaining about my work. I would often feel that way until I found out for sure what the conversation was about. Often, when people I know are laughing about something, I sometimes convince myself they're laughing at me.

I've always had the feeling/thought that I'm not wanted. Even though people always say they like me, laugh and carry on with me etc. They don't get it's just the mask I HAVE to put on.

On the upside it's shown me that I don't really need anyone.

it's true, that could happen but if you work at a nice place it won't! Also about people accusing you of doing something wrong or being told off by everyone i don't think happens often so therefore i don't think you have to worry about it.

You're probably going to come across someone you don't get along with but when God is in the picture you don't have to worry about it. He will take care of it or you probably can say it's not true if the Holy Spirit tells it to you. but i know you're likely not a christian but if you are you'll know what I'm talking about. You also have to have a bounce back mentality like my favorite paster joel osteen says it. let criticism bounce back to where it belongs and know who you are whether it's in Christ jesus or not! it both works in this case. God bless you

I find once i get paranoid about something (& self-conscious), then it can easily spiral out of control, suspiciously. You imagine more people are saying things about you or giggling at you, and maybe they are - it's hard to tell the fact from the fiction when in that state.
