124 S10 Negative Emotion – Suspicious

Suspicious

Definition

Having or showing a cautious distrust of someone or something.
Causing one to have the idea or impression that something or someone is of questionable, dishonest, or dangerous character or condition.

Practical Tips

  1. Work out where your suspicions have come from, is this about you or them?
  2. If it’s a pattern within you, look for the trigger, awareness will help you understand your thoughts.
  3. Blowing something out of proportion can distract you from your daily life, so perhaps go with the benefit of the doubt until you have more concrete information.
  4. Know that everything comes ‘out in the wash’, so relax.
