Questioning and challenging paranoid thoughts

Questioning and challenging paranoid thoughts

Asking yourself these questions can help you work out whether your suspicious thoughts are paranoid or justified.

  • Would other people think my suspicions are realistic?
  • What would my best friend say?
  • Have I talked to other people about my worries?
  • Is it possible I have exaggerated the threat?
  • Is there any evidence for my suspicions that can’t be questioned?
  • Are my worries based on events that could be viewed in different ways?
  • Are my worries based on my feelings rather than definite evidence?
  • Is it likely that I would be singled out above everyone else?
  • Is there any evidence against my beliefs?
  • Is it possible that I’m being oversensitive?
  • Do I still feel suspicious even though other people have reassured me that there is no reason to be?
