I keep imagining really negative scenarios eg:
I keep imaginig that i was watching porn on my ipad and i accidentally enabled airplay while my folks head guests round with kids etc. what they think?
Or when i was at work (electronics store) i keep imagining accidentally dropping a customers laptop and smashing it with his work files on their. How they react.
these thoughts are very discouraging and unnerving. Is this what they call anxiety?
the only thng that seems to help me calm down is when i focus on one thing, esp something that i like eg studying, going gym i just focus on what im doing there and then. Though sometimes when im sitting bone idol these thoughts tend to ceep up and they've been getting really strong as of late.
i just don't understand the nature of them. Why am i thinking of worst case scenarios like?
i can't help but think its the results of past events and my brain subconsciously learning to associate any pursuit with negative outcomes like in the past. Like a conditioning effect acng as a defence mechanism for possible future confrontations.Am i right?
What is wrong with my brain? Watch

If these are really bothering you maybe see your doctor?

Well maybe if you think of them then it won't happen, like a safety jinx.

Do you mean you get negative associations to things that you've done in the past
e.g. you're about to talk to a girl but then you remember the last girl you talked to threw a drink over you... that sort of thing?
It does sound alot like anxiety dude
