I am early in recovery (5 weeks), and I am finding out how paranoid I am about other people. For example, I will always search for ulterior motives when people are nice to me (outside of AA), or assume that they 'bitch' about me behind my back. I know that these feelings are part of my ego and are negative and damaging and probably unfounded but I am finding it difficult to make my head 'shut up' and I keep over-analysing conversations and it is making me feel paranoid and crazy. I'd really like it if anyone else who has experience this in recovery could share with me how they coped with these feelings. Thanks.
