    Lightbulb to look over one's shoulder

    In the idiom " to look over one's shoulder" , the shoulder referred to is one's own shoulder and the meaning reflects suspicion, I feel. Am I correct? Or if there is any other meaning of this idiom.

    Longman Dict has this:

    be looking over your shoulder
    to feel worried that something unpleasant is going to happen to you
