This is *especially true* when dealing with curses & crossed conditions, as the act of being crossed-up inspires fear as a baseline. Its this function that I'd like to talk about some today, as paranoia becomes something of a paradox when remedying such issues. In the States, we have a saying for this: "Just because you're paranoid, it doesn't mean nobody's out to get you."
This phrase conveys the idea that one should have the assumption that no one is out to get them unless circumstances indicate otherwise.....That last part is a Devil to get right! Particularly at times where nothing is going right for you.
If you feel that you're contending with any kind of crossed condition, take notes. Start a journal and track when everything seemed to go awry. Note down dates, times, and consistent patterns along the way, and then bring that information to a reader you can trust. I prefer to stick with those who will give you an answer without any bias or judgement, as those two things are uniquely unhelpful in dealing with matters of healing.
After you've sought divinatory assistance and been given an answer, take that as fact & work towards the improvement of your life with that information in mind. If you need to confirm the diagnosis elsewhere, follow the same pattern and talk to someone else who can give you an accurate assessment of what's going on. If you get conflicting readings, for whatever reason, focus on the overlap and work on that specific thing to see if your life improves. Repeat this process as necessary until things are functioning more smoothly, and for the love of God, leave fear out of it inasmuch as you're capable of doing so.
Don't let your fear inspire paranoia and desperation, as that's when people begin to chase their tails endlessly without improvement. That's the point at which the bad days become a habit rather than a short-term engagement, leading to more bad days & making help much, MUCH more difficult to seek. You don't want to put yourself into a situation where you're the problem child, and effective curses predispose one to becoming that troublesome party in their own lives. Choosing not to let fear dictate how you live is one way in which you can wrest back control and have some say in how things work out going forward.
Just my two cents, and I do hope it helps a good number of you.
Blessings to you all,
