The law of attraction is like karma in that it makes us responsible for our own lives. The difference is that the LOA avoids talking about the topic from the perspective of various lives.
That's very different from magical thinking: that you might hurt someone by having a hobby or something. From a Buddhist perspective what matters is simply to WANTING to hurt people and not actively hurting people. Since you clearly do not want to hurt people, you're in the clear on that one. You're probably hurting people by avoiding them though, from what I can tell.
Personally I think online help might definitely be a help: you're pretty clear on where you went wrong, and probably only need help getting back on track. do remind yourself regularly that if bad things happen to people, that doesn't have anything to do with you.
My own experience dealing with fears is simple: face up to them and you'll conquer me one by one. Fears don't just disappear, but familiarity with a situation will make it easier to deal with, the fear becomes manageable.
I wonder if superstition work through LoA,I mean you know like breaking mirror and get bad luck thing,maybe people believe it is true so it happened,so I wonder if I accidentally created my own set of superstitions,you get what I mean?

I think if YOU believe in the superstition, it could affect you. But stepping on a crack won't break your mother's back, unless she thinks it will too.
Of course, there is sympathetic magic, but that actually takes a lot of focus and willpower which you are not exerting. The same thing applies to the law of attraction: you have to focus on something intently with unswerving faith that it will occur. And affecting another person with LoA is even more difficult because they simultaneously have their own thoughts/feelings which may be completely different from yours. In any case a person's own expectations have much more influence on themselves than what you might be putting out.
Bottom line: your fears are totally illogical and unfounded even within the paradigm of LoA or voodoo/witchcraft.
In my experience shrinks are just witchdoctors who overcharge for their services. They do nothing but listen to you whine and then get you strung out on expensive, mostly untested drugs which will have all sorts of interesting, long term side-effects. You may as well go see a Gypsy fortuneteller. It's safer, cheaper, just as effective (and she's pretty and will stroke your hand as she reads your palm).
But whatever... it's your call.
Hmm....... ok,but the supporters of LoA talk as if just having bad thoughts alone is almost solely responsible for whatever suffering someone is having.

Persistantly bad thoughts, yes. People observe, for example, that they are in poverty and so they come to expect it never imagining that they could experience anything better. In this case the perception feeds back into your thought processes which in turn will tend to perpetuate the reality that you are perceiving.
While continueing to manifest what is already manifesting is an easy, passive process the same cannot be said for manifesting something new. To change your circumstances, for better or worse, requires persistent focus upon the new manifestation while doggedly ignoring what already is. A stray negative thought has no more power to manifest than a stray, positive thought. Anyone can attest to this. How many of you have gotten on to a plane and thought about it crashing or being taken hostage? And yet you are still alive. How many people buy lottery tickets every week and dream of what they would do with the money? And yet weeks will pass in which no one will win.
