“Today was my fifth shift at a new job. I can’t help but think my coworkers are talking badly about me when i’m not around. I get anxious on the way to work just wondering who’s going to be there. When i’m working in the front of the store most other employees gather at the back end of the store and giggle and my last shift i saw them pointing in my direction and talking then laughing. It makes me feel so uncomfortable and anxious. i really just want to do a good job and be liked.”
