"I would hear footsteps after me when I was out walking."
I suffer from paranoia, especially ghosts/spirits. The lights will always be turned on, even at night. I never stay home alone. In my dreams, I often see myself walking into someone’s house and it gives me cold chills. When I go to temple, seeing all the ashes sitting on the altar would send shivers down my spine.
I would hear footsteps after me when I was out walking. Sometimes I would see someone’s shadow pass by out of the corner of my eye. A close relative said that it is normal to feel like that at times, especially the dreams are during daytime. Ever since then I am less afraid of the spirits.
