Stress at Work

The whole concept of life and having jobs and then dying makes me so worried and anxious. I can't live my entire life working a normal job. It takes away from me being able to enjoy things and it makes me feel like a robot. Life shouldn't be like this and nobody understands this when I talk to them, it's like everyone's been brainwashed into thinking this is all life is. It's not, and I refuse to live in this cruel world if that's how my life will end up

Despite what job you do, a job is a job and everyone should be respected. Whether you work in retail or own it, we're all doing hours to make money to stabilise our futures. We all want financial stability and how you achieve it should not matter.

No matter how hard I try I can't answer the phone when it rings at work.. I try, but I fail almost every single time.

I worked hard to get to my current position. I try to do my job, but my boss will not let me. He overrides everything I try to correct, and does not back me at all. He tells me that I "have not been there long enough and that is just how things are here". With my daily commute, my work day is at least 11 hours if I get out on time. (Mind you I get paid for 8 hours) I have been struggling to just get to work the past 3 weeks. My anxiety has spiked and I become physically ill just driving to work.

Very difficult to find people that share values in the workplace. I came to this job with a mindset. I need to stay focused. My focus is my career, not my job. I've been thinking the smart move is to stay on my job. But now that it's a new day, I think the real smart move is to quit my job. Because really, these people aren't my friends either. I have nothing to lose here. And yet I feel bad, even with everyone complaining about the owner's lack of mgmt. This was meant to be a summer job.

I've been applying for jobs and I feel so worthless. I have no confidence that anyone will want to hire me.

I work as head hostess at a fast pace restaurant with a unique method of seating customers. I feel like my managers use and abuse me. It's like I can never have a day off and when I am I'm always called in. I say no most of the time. But my position is very stressful. I literally have the restaurant in the palm of my hands. If I seat incorrectly I could mess up the kitchens and the servers. It's just very stressful knowing I could mess up the flow of things. It's a lot to deal with.

Banking stress is tuff, sell sell sell... Very little uplift. I panic every morning just going out the front door.

This one girl seemed totally rude to me at work when I told her about something through our work chat... She probably thought I was being rude but idk i was just telling her what I thought and then it's like she acted like I was stupid describing me the whole process of the workflow, I just felt like it was a jerk thing to do... It didn't make me feel good.

So I'm getting bullied at work by an insecure 23 year old and I'm 17. She bosses me around and talks to me like I'm a piece of shit to make herself feel better. She tells other colleagues what I say to her to make them laugh at me which is so annoying and pathetic. all of this makes me feel like shit and a useless waste of space that can't stand up for herself.

My husband's job stresses me out. He has so many commitments & pressure to be the best.

I work shifts alone at a small perfume shop in a mall in my town. Lately, a guy I knew from high school has been coming around and trying to make conversation with me. He will follow me on my breaks, come in and bother me, and once outside of work intruded on a dinner I was having with my family. He makes me very scared and uncomfortable especially because I work alone and even leave at late hours alone. He was very violent in high school which makes me more afraid. What should I do?
