I quit my job today. It was scary, but I hope it is a step toward something better.

Why does making one mistake make me feel like such a failure?!

I'm always terrified before I go to work it's my first job and I get so scared before I go and sometimes during the job my hands will be shaking. I have to go tonight I start in an hour and a half and I feel sick and my chest is all tight.

Some days I wish I didn't have a full time job so that I can have more down time. Some days my anxiety gets really bad that I just want to leave work but more times than that I power through it.

I feel so shitty... Interviews after interviews and still i havent got a job yet. I feel like i have no life right now, i constantly feel useless and restless at home doing nothing and unemployed. Today i went for an interview and the agent asked me many things that i have specifically wrote down on my resume and i thought she might have a job to offer me but instead the interview ended by telling me i dont have much experience because i keep changing jobs. Ugh.... im so useless.

Work is my primary source of stress. It is insanely stressful, and I report to a closed minded, egotistical boss. I'd love to quit but I'm divorced, supporting two kids, and I have a mortgage.

When you are wearing earbuds but that gets ignored & you have to listen to stories & opinions you don't agree with or want to participate in at all

I'm normally a very social person when around friends. I feel completely fine saying anything and have a strong personality. But at work I'm a shell of my self. I feel too anxious to speak and my throat tightens up. I hate it cause I know I'd be so much more successful and would probably enjoy my job if I could just express my personality and keep up conversations there. Just needed to vent. Anyone else like this? Tips?

A day off will do me good.

I've been trying to find a job for so long, but have only gotten one interview so far. I feel so discouraged and invisible. All of my efforts have been useless up to this point. I'm afraid it's going to keep on like this forever.

I hate going to work because I hate the customers that come in. A lot of the time they stare at me like I'm nuts if when I ask if they need help and the mock me when they think I don't notice and I usually have to work with the one person I dislike nearly every shift I have.. Suggestions on how to handle these situations?

I've put up with some really crappy situations in my job over the last year and a half, but now I feel like I may need to leave a job I have loved in the past. My boss barely talks to me and keeps me out of the loop on details that directly effect my clients and my role in the department. I do t want to "tattle" but friends, family, and therapist encouraged me to visit HR and tell them what's been going on. Sadly, regardless of what I do it feels like the job I loved is gone and each day sucks.

I want to find a job but my anxiety don't want me to apply.

I want to quit my job. I told my boss I suffer from anxiety and now it feels like he's always trying to gauge my mood. I'm afraid they're going to get rid of me anyway. My position once felt certain and there was even the possibility of promotion. But all of that seems to have vanished. I've been depressed about where I stand in life lately, so maybe it is time for a change. I feel so scared to try something new.

I wrote my resignation letter yesterday and i'm planning on submitting it today but i'm scared. I didn't go to work for the past week (for health reasons) and i'm afraid my boss will scold me. I just have to submit that letter and i'm free..hopefully. πŸ™

I got these flyers printed for work and something messed up and they're ruined. I think it's my fault and I wasted company money :(((

i quit my job, and i'm really happy bout it, but i shaved a side of my head and have gauges and a septum and two sort of visible tattoos and i'm worried i won't be able to find a job that has no issue with all that.

I had a customer come in and tell me I could afford to skip lunch and lose a few pounds. I was quick to say I'm happy just how I am. But it broke me into a million little pieces inside.

I quit a job I hated but now I can't find a new job. I'm regretting my decision to quit.

I wish I could make myself wake up in time to get to work at a reasonable hour. I wish I didn't feel so bitter about my bosses passing tasks off on me while they enjoy their lives not working. I wish I could stay more focused and be more productive.

I know this is such a little thing to worry about but I'm the only employee that hadn't gotten employee of the month, despite working there for longer than others

My job is a constant place of negativity. So many people quit and I wish I could walk out with them but right now I'm waiting on everything to align in order for me to get a new job so I can leave this stress and negativity behind.
