I'm worried all my coworkers are becoming friends with eachother and I'm left out. If I can't even make friends at this job, when will I ever? Is there something about me people don't like? I wish someone would be honest with me. It's scary because I also feel like it's just in my head and I'm sabataging my own happiness.

I made a mistake and I am now receiving criticism. I am not mad at the feedback. I am upset because the criticism is true and I have to face it and aim to learn from the mistake.

Everyday I have a lot of work to do, sometimes during the day I get stressed and at the end of the day, I'm tired.

I can't fall asleep because I can't stop thinking about how I can't fall asleep and I have to get up early tomorrow to work. Talk about counterproductive...

I have a coworker who isn't very nice, she makes jokes about me not liking to be touched (pats on back, hugs , etc) to other coworkers. I find it very difficult to work in the same room as her and my boss wouldn't take it seriously if I told her my problem and it setting off my anxiety. I'm unsure of what to do.

My job is challenging and not for me. I've been doing it for 11 years and it gets me down. I'm only there for the money. I want to be an artist.

It is so h a r d to teach swim lessons and be a camp counselor when all of my kids ask what happened to my arm. They're too young to understand that they're self-harm scars, but it hurts so much to have to deal with the same question. I wish I never cut..😞

When I can't deal with my coworkers and customers I walk away,take a few breaths and then come back. It doesn't always work but sometimes it does. I try to be friendly with everyone but sometimes it's too hard. Some days I would like to call in sick and lay in bed where I don't have to deal with anyone.

I feel so anxious about messing up at work I feel like if I make one mistake I am not good at my job

My list is endless! And feels never ending. Sometimes it can be so overwhelming that I feel paralysed. Tomorrow I plan to complete each task in a patient mannor and not give into the fear. I will strive for a warm sense of accomplishment.

I never realised how much not liking the people I work with could effect my job. For a very long time I worked in job that I liked, but I wanted more from. However I loved the people I worked with. I left that job for something I thought that I wanted; it turned out not to be enough. But I loved the people I worked with. I recently started with this practice in December. I love what I'm doing, but I can't stand the people that I work with. And I need to get out before I go insane.

I hate that my job doesn't challenge me and is not what I want to my doing in life at all. I hate that I make so little money after graduating with a college degree. I hate leaving my family every day for 8 hours to do something that I dislike so much.

Being a manager is a pain. Complain, complain, and complain. It's amazing how adults become children 0 to 30 seconds. Goodness gracious😐

There is one person in my department that I absolutely hate. Everything about them drives me insane. We've had several disagreements and this is the type of person who, if something doesn't go their way, will run to the boss. Every time I have to point out an error or we have an anxiety goes into overdrive because I'm afraid I'm going to get into trouble.

I can't deal with people today and my job involves having to talk to people on the phone and in person. I don't want to pretend to be fine and in a good mood. I feel sad, angry, lonely, and so guilty.

My job makes me hate people. All I ask for is a 'please'& 'thank you'..people are so rude and greedy😠 mom and dad taught me better than that! Obviously times have changed! Go 90's babies😈

I've started a new job last week. my first "real" job after college and my anxiety has been high lately so it makes me feel inadequate. I'm trying to learn as much as I can, but I feel like I'm not doing as well as I would like to. I'm doubting myself

My boss loves me! She's always complementing on how hard I work and what a beautiful job I'm doing👌🏻 and that's fine but, it gets in my head that now I can't ever let her down cause I'm scared I'll loose my job and/or her friendship..cause she is the only reason I'm still there cause she depends on me so's tough and I stress to the point where I'm having a full blown panic and I'm too embarrassed to let anyone know what's going on with me so I hide from the fact that it's happening..

In an office of 3, I have had 3 different bosses and 3 different coworkers in less than 4 years (I promise it's not because of me!) I'm so tired of being the stable "rock" for the rest of the division and my mental health has taken a major toll. More changes to come soon and even more stress. What's more terrifying is the thought that I could leave for a new job and end up somewhere even worse. Does that make sense to anyone else?

I work at fast food and I can not tell you how stressed out I get at my job all the time. And people telling me to calm down never helps, I have a panic attack almost everyday that I work. A lot of customers go out of their way to make my day harder..... Honestly I do everything in my power to help these customers but they are never satisfied....

I love my job. The job is fun (but tiring) and my coworkers are all great people. It's a really wonderful job. ...Except for my boss. He's rather terrible.

Work is stressful lately. I have only been there 2 months and I feel I have been thrown into a mess :( I don't get much direction and I thrive off structure...I love feeling helpful and I guess I am not feeling that. Finding a job you love is so hard and seems impossible

I'm getting burnt out..not even with what I'm doing but just where I am doing it. Although childcare is a tiring and sometimes stressful job I do love it but I'm finding myself losing patience easier.. I don't know if it's a change in the environment I need or what.. I applied somewhere else that would be a GREAT opportunity and got a phone interview, and in person interview and didn't get the job.. Just frustrated.. :(
