At work I'm known as "stuck up" or "self centered", but what they don't realize is that it scares me to communicate with new people so I avoid it...

I don't fit in at work.. or any where really. I try to be friendly but end up feeling rejected. People tell me all the time that "once they got to know me" they really like me and that before they got to know they thought I was stuck up and snooty. I'm just being myself. I don't know any other way bit I feel like Im constantly trying to change myself just to fit in (which is not working) any advise...

I feel so much sadness right now. My self esteem is very low because I am unable to find a job. I don't feel useful at all. I have to find a way to feel good about myself regardless of external factors. I'm trying very hard to stay positive but it's an uphill battle.

I feel so incapable. I know I should be ok with my education and stuff, but I am terrified to make mistakes.

I just feel like my coworkers don't really like me. They act different when they talk to me. Sure, I am a serious person at work, but only because of all the work I need to get done! I have been spoken to a few times about "creating relationships," but to be honest, I don't care enough to do so, because I don't think my coworkers care either. I feel like quitting, but I need the money. Since graduating 2 years ago, I have not loved my jobs. I just hope I can find a career soon that I ENJOY.

I'm so depressed about not being able to find a good job. I apply and never hear back or there just aren't enough jobs out there that I qualify for. I feel trapped and sad all of the time.

Feeling anxious about starting work tomorrow I just want to stay home in my bed where I feel safe

I try really hard at work and my superiors don't seem to care. They work you to the bone and remind everyone that we are all disposable and can easily be replaced. I'm only there until I graduate with my Master's. I have so much on my plate right now and I feel overwhelmed.

I love and hate my job all at the same time. I love what I do, yet the stresses that come with it and the unnecessary stuff I have to endure makes me hate it. I make decent money and enjoy it yet with my anxiety I am always 2nd guessing myself and lately I have been making mistakes and I feel eventually that will cost me my job. A few of my coworkers make it almost impossible to enjoy coming to work. I have been on the verge of walking out lately. Any suggestions?

On Saturday, I had a really bad anxiety attack at work & I left in tears. After that, I went to my doctor and she suggested that I should quit my job and focus on school for now, she said the reason why I'm having such high anxiety/depression is because I push my body day after day. Not to mention, I work at a beauty salon with 7 other girls. None of them make me feel included and I feel alone working there. I'm nervous about working tomorrow and telling them I'm putting in my 2 weeks...

I feel like every time I walk into work I am crying because of my personal life

Today I ran into a situation where a patient's friend got under my skin. It was hard for me to bite my tongue. It's discouraging to work in a thankless job and people treat you like crap.

Oh my gosh. WHERE DO I START! So I work in retail and today was the worst day I've ever had. Basically in short, a lady didn't want to give me her email so I asked her if I can enter a previous email that I had in place of hers. She said "yes". Then two seconds later totally freaked out at me! She got my manager involved called the ethics line and called me incompetent and stupid. Also said " this won't be the last you'll here of me." All cause she thought her information got "stolen". My life.

On my first job out of colegw, my boss fired me without telling me what was going wrong till the day she gave me the talk. I'm currently temping, and its my second job. Tomorrow is when my supervisor talks to me about my performance. I'm so scared that the same thing will play out again.

So I'm graduating from university in a few months and recruitment has already started. My gpa is not that great and it's giving me anxiety just thinking about if I'll get a job or not.

So I just lost my job that I had been at for 4 years being a pharmacy tech because I work for a certain "large corporation" and they decided to hire a lot of people paying starting pay and get rid of some of us that had been there for a while making double what starting pay is. I never thought they would do such a thing. I loved my job and the company. Needless to say the stress of looking for another pharm tech job that pays well is getting to me.

Im writing a test tomorrow and my boss that made me work 4hours overtime last night, made me come in 2hours early today. Im leaving after lunch to study. My colleagues really dont get it. They get jelous when I get awarded for my hard work and treat me like crap. I hate it. Why do some people go out of their way to be so cruel???

There's so much I have to do to catch up at work, but every time I think about it I just push it back because I get so overwhelmed. There are very few times when I have the energy to work. This is a job that requires you to spend a lot of time working off the clock. I'm just so tired and stressed, I want to quit, but I don't want to let anyone down (including myself).

I finished grad school and my dream job was waiting in my hometown. I feel that I'm getting stressed and anxious and have been over thinking. Lately, I just feel that I'm feeling like this due to burnout. I love my job and what I do. Any strategies to help with this burnout and perhaps strategies in leaving work earlier than over working myself?

Oh god.. I've fallen for this girl who I work with.. It's so difficult.. I hate rejection and she has a boyfriend.. What makes it worse is I'm her boss.. What do I do!?!?

Why is my new manager so awful? He said he wasn't going to be a micromanager, yet here he is being the worst micromanager I have ever had the displeasure working for. He is constantly changing his stories, giving conflicting information, and trying to make waves in the workplace without thinking about the big picture! Wake up! This is a new organization, not your old one! Things will never be exactly like your old office. My anxiety is running sky high today. Can I quit? :(

I've set unrealistic expectations for myself at work that I can't meet unless I want to keep plummeting down an anxiety-ridden path. I'm tired of picking up everyone else's slack to get projects done on time because in turn I'm neglecting myself.

Wow. Work is just so so awful. I am a new nurse and I am so drained and depressed about my job. The people I work with are awful. So so awful. I have a found a couple of helpful people on my shift but most.. Are just plain awful. My preceptor was a bully and it didn't work out with her and I switched training w someone else.. And she basically poisoned that shift towards me. I just don't know how much longer I can take of this. Making me an unhappy and mean person.
