P is for Paranoid #AtoZChallenge

For this year’s A to Z Challenge, I have chosen the theme of character flaws – something all characters need.

P could be for many flaws – perfectionist, pessimistic, possessive, prejudiced, pretentious, pushy or promiscuous, yet I am going with P is for Paranoid. This character is inclined to excessive worrying and irrational suspicion.

They may think someone is out to get them. Or just like the obsessive character they may be worried about germs. They may be extra watchful and notice things that others miss or disregard. They may take risks that others wouldn’t in an effort to stay safe. If they see a person as a threat, they may react with aggression or violence.

It is unlikely that a paranoid character will seek help on their own. Friends or family who encourage them to get help may just be playing into their fantasy that everyone is against them.
