Anxiety stems from within itself. Whenever one becomes paranoid or anxious, it is almost always because they obsess over becoming anxious/paranoid. That obsession begins to blossom and after a certain point, there is no going back. The key is to recognize when you start to enter that realm of anxiety and consciously stop yourself. Man up to it, to yourself, embrace that feeling, and then try to objectively look at it. Only then will you realize there is nothing to be anxious about.
I think there is an evolutionary reason for anxiety/paranoia. It kept us on our toes when we were hunting and gathering way back when. Now, it is no longer relevant. Soon it may disappear completely.
