Stress at Work

I swear the company I work for reads up on how to be a great organization and leader in its field and says, yup, lets do the exact opposite.

What do you do if you're not sure if you belong? Is anyone else second guessing if where they work is where they're meant to be?

I have put my all into this job. I picked up the slack when we were lacking employees. I worked off the clock. Disrespected is not even the right word for what has been going on lately. But Im done and guess what I'm writing my letter of resignation as of right now! I feel great about it.

I could have had a major meltdown today, but I pushed myself not to. It felt good to calm down and realize that I can't control others inability to be responsible. Feeling proud today :)

My job isn't hard per say, but when we get busy I just get really stressed out and anxious. I want to cry and scream and walk out all at the same time but I can't say anything to anyone about how I'm feeling because we're too busy to stop. I want to quit. But it was so hard to find a job in the first place.

So i just quit my job and i'm happy that I did because it gave me a lot of anxiety. But now I'm scared of what my co-workers think of me because I didnt even work there for a long time. I didn't even know everyone! And I know it's stupid because I literally never have to see them again and I'm being weird because it's not even that I didn't like them, I did! So I have no idea where this feeling suddenly comes from. I'm crazy? 😂

It's bad enough that I lack confidence because of my depression, but when my managers have clearly decided I'm incompetent (despite knowing very little about me or my work) it makes me want to give up.

While most of us in our product line are giving it our best to succeed, executive suits are doing all they can to run the company to the ground.

I have my dream job, but the way everything is done is horrible. I'm not supported in my position, and my higher ups are constantly questioning everything I do while they tell me I'm doing everything right and growing positively. I am applying to find a better environment for me. This place fills me with so much stress which triggers my anxiety.

I've only been full time for a few months, but it's already making me feel suffocated. I don't have enough time to take care of myself and do what I love and everything feels pointless if my life is going to be wasted away working to earn it back, yet I don't know any other way. At times like this I wish I was just nothingness.

I just graduated with my Master's degree and a rush of anxiety just came over me in the middle of the night. What if I never find a job? My shoulders tighten up so tense and my partner sleeps silently next to me unknowing. I need to sleep but I can't just get rid of your anxiety I want to just relax. Keep job searching but understand that the rest is up to the universe.

Was told last week that my position was being eliminated. Although they said it's not my fault, I just keep thinking about what I could've done differently. I'm so sad and disappointed.

Woke up today feeling very anxious and nervous about going to work, even though I've been there for over 2 years. I called out yesterday, but I can't do the same today. I guess I just need to suck it up, right?

This woman I work with is such a bully to me! She's rude, she complains about me, rolls her eyes at me, makes fun of me, and stuff. She's said I'm a bore and that my very presence annoys her. She's turned several people against me. She's so horrible and unbearable for me to have to work with!

Stuck in a job I'm miserable in until after my wedding in Nov. I haven't felt excited about wedding planning due to the extreme pressure of work. Feeling like I'm missing my happiness because I can't shake the negativity work leaves me with. My boss is so disconnected and doesn't listen. He thinks he "fixes" but he only meddles and with no tact. To top it all off my low self esteem is even lower after this job, I hate that I allow them to dictate so much of my life!

I've been signed off for two weeks due to stress, this has made me feel slightly better but it isn't a long term solution x

Always do what's best for you when it comes to jobs, if it's not working out, it's okay to say no

I'm the kind of person that can't relax. I need to be productive to feel good, but I'm not allowed to work this summer. I feel like I'm going insane being stuck with my thoughts.

My good friend at work deleted me on social media despite knowing I was signed off work with depression and anxiety. No explanation. She's turned really nasty. Friends don't do that right?
