Stress at Work

I don't think I can or should do my job any more

Posted at Feb 16, 2016 2:55 PM, 0 comments

I dread going to work. Its because my boss and another co-worker are constantly talking about others and gossiping. They are so hateful and stuck up but yet they have everything going for them. I feel like I'm not a bad person so why can't good things happen to me. Why do hateful and rude people get everything what they want? Why do they get to have a good life?

I feel alone here. I try to reach out to others but I feel like we are all alone together, if that makes sense.

I am thinking about getting a part-time job instead of keeping my full-time job because I go to law school part-time.

I don't know what's wrong with me. I went to a great high school, and even greater college, got a great degree, and now I'm stuck in a job that seems to breed laziness and frustration. But I'm not stuck here. But I am. Because every time I go to look for a new job, I get scared about the unknown and think about the devil I don't know and how he could be worse than the devil that I work for right now. How do I find The motivation to convince myself that I do deserve better?

I can't even get a job because of my anxiety. I don't have any experience. I feel physically horrible when I think about working around people I know. I feel like I'm drowning in a spiral of anxiety and depression and stresss

I work at a job that is not fulfilling me at all, I have a very high anxiety though and am not good at getting a new job...I don't know what to do, I don't know how to change

I dread having to go to work after every Sunday to the point it makes my anxiety so high that I become in a very bad mood the 3 days I am working. I like my co-workers and the kids I am getting close to, it's the morale and how we are treated when sick that makes me anxious. I have to go to work with vertigo and headaches frequently. Looking for a new job but until I have a new one I can't leave. I feel trapped.

I am really struggling with work, I am absolutely dreading going to work tomorrow. I'm panicky and really anxious, I hate it there. I've been applying for new jobs and even attended an interview which I really thought I wouldn't do. I need some advise. Please.

My boss and I got into it. She basically told me I should act like another co-worker of mine because she got a good comment from someone.I didnt say anything & yes i was bitter the rest of the because i thought it was rude.Well after i left work she texted me & told me i need to be more positive cause she has a lot going on in her life & used my aniexty against me. Should i confront her about it? Im very upset about it, should i be or am i just over thinking it?

Why do people get jobs for if they don't show up when they are scheduled

I work in retail on the sales floor. I over heard my bosses talking about what workers were good at their job and what workers were bad. I got so offended even if my name wasn't brought up. I just think that's so unprofessional to talk behind others backs, especially since they are leaders. I think everyone has their strengths and weaknesses. I can only imagine what they say about me. I might be overthinking it but I just think it's so rude and disrespectful to people who work hard.

was recently promoted to a management position. i've never had any authority at a job before and it's overwhelming since i'm not used to it.

I hate dealing with people who are super rude and bitchy when they're stressed. Then bc I'm not as overwhelmed, I'm the bad guy. I may get cranky, but I try not to be out right rude.

I finally opened up to my boss about my aniexty and depression yesterday. The only reason why is because she kept on yelling at me for being so quiet. She kept asking me what crawled up my butt and died (btw I cleaned up the language). When we spoke she seemed concern. Well nothing changed today a nd she acted 10x worst than she normally does. I really thought she was going to make an effort to change. She is such a toxic and hateful person. Idk what to do anymore...

I've just started a new job, and today I had a pretty hysterical melt down moment from all the stress. It was nice to see that so many people cared and that I have amazing support in my supervisor.

I was rude to a customer who was being rude to me, I felt like I got pushed to the edge and I just snapped, but I regret it so much and feel like a horrible person. Also worried that they will complain. I feel so annoyed at myself because I have always kept my calm with rude people. I think customers sometimes forget you are a person too.

Hey guys, a coworker and I guess kinda friend blocked me on Facebook. This has my anxiety wired and I just wanted to know if there was anything to do to calm down. I probably won't be working with them again until Easter.

Hated my job so much that I just stopped going. I ignored calls and texts from my supervisor and tried to focus on my health since being out if my meds was leaving me in a really rough spot. Now that I'm somewhat stable again I feel conflicted about what I did. On one hand I'm glad I'm not there anymore, but on the other hand I feel ashamed because my family still believes I'm working (except my mom since I live with her). But that job was literally destroying my mood and making me angry.
