Paranoia tends to focus on the past or on the future. Very rarely does it deal with the here and now. Thus by focusing on being present at this particular moment in time we can reduce paranoid thinking. The past does not matter and neither does the future. All we have is the here and now.

Find something you do artistic or crafty and create! Nothing makes a person more confident than being proud of what they have accomplished, or at least giving them an identity to the world.

You can help him cope with his suspicion and mistrust by encouraging him to voice his thoughts, and then explaining your actions in a neutral and non-defensive way.


Sometimes crying or laughing
are the only options left,
and laughing feels better right now.
