He’s a guy of delusions, alright

But is it still paranoia if you’re guilty of crimes?

被害妄想
hi.gai.mou.sou

Literally: incur – harm – delusion – thought

Alternately: A persecution complex. Paranoia. A deluded belief that one is being unfairly singled out, specifically targeted, or harmed even though the reality is far more benign or impartial.

Notes: This is another compound comprising two two-character compound words: higai is “damage,” and mousou is “delusion.”

HiGaiJiiBaa

The irrational feeling that somewhere, somehow, your grandparents are disappointed in you.

About Confanity

I love the written word more than anything else I've had the chance to work with. I'm back in the States from Japan for grad school, but still studying Japanese with the hope of becoming a translator -- or writer, or even teacher -- as long as it's something language-related.
