I don't know how much longer I can pretend I'm not mentally ill around my colleagues.

I am starting a new job in a week. It's my first official job in my profession after graduate school. I'm feeling very anxious about it.

I'm re-learning that I care too much about trying to please people (both customers and co-workers). That sounds like a misguided complI mentioned but it's actually a curse. It makes me over analyze everything.

Went to the office on my birthday and felt so down when I left. Only two people there even knowledge me. I felt shunned and like I was hated. I love my job but don't like going to the office for anything. I have a hard time getting time off especially when it's regarding specialists appt., court appearance or for my kids emergency. I feel so frustrated, hurt, disappointed and hated. I think that my xs girlfriend talked badly about me to the office so now I'm looked at and treated like dirt

Woke up early enough to be on work on time, but spent an hour contemplating if I should go or not.

Workload keeps increasing but we are not getting more staff to help cope with it. Really feel like I'm at breaking point right now 😥

I'm starting a new job tomorrow. Usually this should be a good thing and I should be excited, but I am dreading it. Its not the job itself - I worked seasonally last year and this is just a permanent extension of that. But I took the job because I wanted to live here with my bf. we have since broken up, and I have moved back to the area specially for this job: new house, new job, new chapter etc. Finding it very hard to be excited since these aren't the circumstances I hoped to be in.

I work 60 hours a week, and it's to much....I was going to take a class so I could move on, but I'm being forced to buy a car because mine will no longer make it to work. Now I have no money for the class, and now I'm broke too....i guess at least I can make it to work....

I have really bad social anxiety when I'm at work. I get crazy scared to talk customers because I'm afraid of looking stupid. I usually let me mother or sister talk to the customers. I'm so ashamed that I can't communicate efficiently. I don't understand why I feel this way but I hate it😩😩

I asked my coworker to stop painting her nails in the middle of work because first, I am allergic to nail polish; and second she was doing it on the computer that scans parcels. She threw it at my face and I stopped breathing and passed out. 911 had to be called and I went to ER. I am so upset by this (happened Friday) and am going back to work tomorrow and am now kind of dread seeing this person. She has threatened others too. She is friends with boss hence why she is still working with us.

My coworker and I are taking on the workload of our boss in addition to our own because she quit. Frustrating to only be able to do so much in a day when my other boss just doesn't understand.

My job can be very demanding and stressful. It is often fast-paced requiring me to be under pressure due to time restrictions. The irresponsible behavior of others causes my job to be more difficult.

It's my day off. This feels amazing. Lots of changes, can this old dog keep up?

I quit my job at the bakery today. I just can't bring myself to work with people that talk behind my back, I'm an empath and negativity is the worst thing for me. But I can also focus more on mine and Josh's business now, Perfection Home Services (: I set up my office today and now I feel so accomplished. I can't wait to see what's in store for my future 💜

I feel like the only people who become successful in business are the narcissists or the sociopaths. Their thick teflon skin allows them to be harshly relentless. Nobody may like them but they are insensitive to that anyways. And, they don't care about not being like becuz their motives & goals are based on power & not on empathy. I feel like I could never compete with these kinds of people nor be as successful. Yet, they are the most extreme dysfunctional species I know. 🤥

I love my job and I like most of my coworkers, but it still bothers me that it's a predominately white workspace and I'm the only person of color.

I just received news from a temp agency I work with that where I currently work they want to hire me for permanent. It's flattering but also I am even more anxious. I'm glad I have a secure job but I can't help but feel overwhelmed a bit. 😰

People at work set me up to fail so they will have something to talk about, thrown to the wolves all the damn time

I want to quit my job. I've been working here for 3 years. My boss is great, I feel really bad about my decision. Do you feel guilty when you want to quit your job? I'm not developing here at all. And... I want to take some time to travel, meditate and what I want from life.
