How can I stop worrying and getting myself in trouble?

I'm trying to figure out how to be less paranoid and obsessive and how to not replay past and future negative scenarios in my head constantly – eventually getting myself in trouble. Often, I go over negative things that I've overheard or have suspicions about, and negative recent occurrences (like getting fired recently or conversations that might have left me in a bad light in someone else’s view). I feel paranoid about anything I cannot control and have ever had problems with perhaps. I was recently fired from a job for generally being too confrontational with my boss about things I saw going wrong and things I was feeling paranoid about. The thing is -- the paranoia is somewhat justified, and I have a hard time believing that it's possible not to worry about stuff all the time. And now at my new job I feel that I’m at risk of the same behavior, feeling jaded already about my new work situation and worrying constantly about everything in my life (and about not having a life, and even about worrying too much itself!) – how can I feel more relaxed and just chill out?

Fired, company expired, what do I say if I want to get hired?

Years ago, I was fired from a job after raising concerns I had over some questionable practices with my manager and a V.P. I did some research recently and learned the company's investors killed the company - for exactly the things I was concerned about. Do I even bother to raise this in an interview if asked about the job? (Naturally, there's more inside.) [more inside]

Fired Right Before Benefits Eligible--Lawful?

Someone I know was fired on Saturday, 9/29, from his hourly job. He was eligible to start receiving benefits (after the six month waiting period) on 10/1. We live in a at-will state and I know you can be fired or quit for most any reason. I'm not wondering about the reason he was fired--I am wondering about the timing of it. It seems to me that the company conveniently got rid of him right before he became benefit-eligible as a cost-saving measure, and I am curious if this is in any way unlawful? We are in Georgia.

Fired yet again, now what?

I had low-level jobs before going back to school for legal secretary, graduating in 2003. I was successful at 2 legal secretary jobs after that but had to quit each one due to needing better benefits or better working conditions. But now this 3rd job I got fired from last week after 5 months, due to a combination of my poor concentration and my boss's critically obsessive perfectionism. I had been fired numerous times before going back to school, but now I thought I was headed for a real career. Since my concentration isn't the greatest, I'm wondering about a career change, but the only thing that looks good on my resume is the legal secretary stuff. I still haven't told my parents, whom I live with, that I got fired yet again. The errors I was making weren't critical, really mostly stuff like [more inside]
