You will never get rid of gossips. It doesn’t matter what other people say and do, all that matters is what you say and do. Do things that you enjoy and make you feel good about yourself.

people always want me to do something! my mum my sister coucelling,mind befriending this that i just want to be being not ambitious anymore.

they are probably not talking about you, this is just our sz thing, paranoia, it happens everyday to me.
i find it helps if i close the curtains and distract myself, and funny thing is i don’t even have any neighbours, but there is a suspicous car at night that drives down the single lane country road !!
you see what i mean !!
take care

I know I have had neighbors who gossip and it’s no delusion. One of them even told me people in the neighborhood said i was a paranoid schizophrenic…that’s not even true diagnoses. I’m Dx’ed SZA bipolar!
there was an even worse rumor than that being spread. A neighbor told me.
then again they gossip about everyone around here behind their backs…some true, some twisted or entirely made up.
I haven’t even talked to a neighbor at all in 7 months. We are pretty isolated, and there’s only one I even trust to associate with at all now… I may see him this coming week for something and a little nervous since i havent talked to him in so long I hope he hasnt been influenced by others rumors!

It’s odd how some buildings have this and others don’t. The place I was in last time, there was a whole lot of gossip about absolutely everyone. It was a whole pot of gossip and no one was immune. I hated it there. It really upset me being there.

This place is just spread out enough and so many people work and aren’t around all day that people hardly know each other here.

I sympathize. I cannot deal with neighbours full stop. The fact is you don’t choose your neighbours, and the idea that you somehow must get on with them scares me very much.
None of my neighbours like me, and i believe judge me as i don’t want to get involved. I am scared of people, but ignorant people just see what they want to see

I am ok now with my neighbors, I don’t really interact with them much, just a wave hi or a greeting of good morning from a far. The last place where I lived was a different story. I was not so well, and my paranoia was greater at the time. Everyone seemed like they were suffocating me - I felt like a target. I hope you get better with your situation soon

thankyou so much everyone its really got to me yesterday then i got zadkeils reply and realised thats right theres nothing you can do about it anyway.
darksith it the not really knowing whats going on inst it. Elunaseer dont worry about the rumours thats what ive learned let them say what they like its truley horrible gossip.
