Paranoid

Paranoia is a thought process that can result in people experiencing irrational mistrust and suspicion of others.

In relationships there will always be this constant worry about a person’s loyalty. A paranoid person will constantly wonder if their partner is unfaithful or if the relationship will even last.

If you are paranoid you will self sabotage every relationship you have by all of the “what ifs” that run through your head or you may run a program of “I’ll leave you before you leave me” so you never let anything get off the ground.

Paranoia can be caused by genes, chemicals in the brain or by a stressful or traumatic life event. If a person has had traumatic relationships, like being left by a love partner, they might fear abandonment or rejection and think their feelings won’t be reciprocated because they were hurt prior. This type of thinking keeps them from experiencing love because they are so afraid of letting their guard down.

But if you want love in your life, you have to be willing to let go of all of these self defeating thoughts that are blocking it and jump in. It’s like being at the beach and you’re hot but the water isn’t quite yet warm. But the waves keep calling you and eventually you get up and walk towards the water. You might dip your toe in to test the temperature, but eventually you go for it and before you know it you are riding the waves having a great time and you can’t believe you ever hesitated.

I love this song! It reminds us not to worry. To not be so paranoid. To not let those doubts creep in when we meet someone we like, just because it didn’t work out with someone from our past.

There is no need to be scared or paranoid when you meet someone that lights you up, but there is a need to be open. Trust what your heart feels and you can’t go wrong. Go ahead….dip that toe.

Why are you so paranoid
Don’t be so paranoid
Don’t be so
Baby, don’t worry about it
Lady, don’t even think about it
You worry bout the wrong things, the wrong things
You worry bout the wrong things, the wrong things
You worry bout the wrong things, the wrong things
You worry bout the wrong things, the wrong things

Tell me right now
You really wanna spend your whole life alone?
A little time out might do you good, might do us good
Before we be done for good
Cause I could make it good I could make it hood
I can make you come I can make you go
I can make you high I can make you fly
Make you touch the sky hey maybe so
All of the time
You be up in mine checking through my cell phone baby no
You wanna kill the vibe on another night
Here’s another fight oh here we go

Baby don’t worry about it
Lady we’ll go out to the floor
Anyway they don’t know you like I do
They’ll never know you
Anyway they don’t know you like I do
They’ll never know you

All of the time
You wanna complain about the nights alone
So now you’re here with me
Show some gratitude leave the attitude way back at home
Yea you see em look
Baby let em look give us cold looks cause we look cold
Yea you heard about all the word of mouth
Don’t worry about what we can’t control
All the talk in the world lost in the world
Till you finally let that thing go
You wanna check in to the heartbreak hotel
But sorry we’re closed

Baby don’t worry about it
Lady we’ll go out to the floor
Anyway they don’t know you like I do
They’ll never know you
Anyway they don’t know you like I do
They’ll never know you

Baby don’t worry about it
Lady don’t even think about it
You worry bout the wrong things, the wrong thing
You worry bout the wrong thing, the wrong thing
You worry bout the wrong thing, the wrong thing
You worry bout the wrong thing

Anyway they don’t know you like I do
They’ll never know you
Anyway they don’t know you like I do
They’ll never know you

Anyway they don’t know you like I do
They’ll never know you
Anyway they don’t know you like I do
They’ll never know you
