When you overthink you tend to think more negatively than positively. This, in turn, makes you assume the worst and you become paranoid. Paranoia, though may seem innocent enough at first, inevitably destroys all romantic relationships. Jealousy creates a relationship of broken trust, lost connection and an inability to openly communicate.
Your boyfriend may be showing signs of being too paranoid by acting selfish in the relationship, showing jealously towards your friends and family, or overreacting to an extreme level. His doubting of you and your relationship without real evidence or cause can lead to hardships in the relationship, no matter how understanding you may be.
If you are feeling a strain on your relationship, his anxiety may be playing a role. Could his paranoia be putting your relationship at risk?
