Intrusive Thoughts

Hi, I have this paranoia that my thoughts can influence things. And this stresses me out, cause I believe that my thoughts can cause bad things to happen to other people.

In addition to this, I also have weird feelings about how I write or type something on a piece of paper can have affect things in the outside world, probably through my obsessive thoughts or feelings. For instance, I don't like writing letters over the margins or if I have phrased something a certain way, some times it feels "wrong" and gives me "bad feelings", and these "bad feelings" can perpetuate the intrusive thoughts that I am paranoid can harm people. A lot of times I can override it, but it's getting worse, the feelings are starting to stick with me more.

It interferes with my productivity, because I will change how I write things on paper because of these superstitious feelings and also trying to avoid certain thoughts can at times be quite wearing, but mostly it is the writing that is starting to bug me at the moment. The problem is, I am not 100% sure if it's not true, because sometimes it seems that my thoughts do influence things. I also obsess a little over how I place things on a table, what I say in conversations, etc.

I am just wondering if anyone has had any similar experiences, and what you would advise to do.
