Stress at Work

Does anyone actually enjoy their job? I make really good money but I hate my job. How can anyone really follow their dreams when you need money to survive?

I wasn't planning on going to a job interview for a company I really liked because of my anxiety issues but I got ready and showed up the last minute and no matter the outcome, I'm so proud of myself for finding the courage to go.

Looking for a new job. I feel incredibly unqualified. I just don't think I can do it. I don't want to live a mundane life. My talents aren't enough to bring me somewhere. I don't have the motivation to work harder. I'm depressed and complaining.

The job interview process can be so stressful and demoralizing. It's hard not to take rejection personally. Sometimes I wonder, is there something about me that puts other people off? Is there something that others see in me that I am oblivious to? All I can do is just keep sending out resumes and recognize that it's all just a big game. All I can do is just try to be a little bit better the next time.

When I don't like someone at work, I have a hard time disguising it. There are 2 people at work who really annoy me for different reasons. Any suggestions? Does this happen to you? I guess I'm my personal life I avoid people who aggravate me.

I overheard my coworkers talking about me. At least I know for a fact that I don't have to worry about being "nice" to them anymore.

I have a new job where I have to present a lot and it's hard to adjust. Every morning I'm stressed getting my thoughts together. And every evening I'm stressed to think about tomorrow

I'm feeling really down today at work and I can't stop myself crying. I found a quiet place I can be alone but I don't know how to stop

I am giving my three week notice tomorrow because I'm moving to a new city. I'm so nervous. I hate disappointing people and it really makes me anxious. I've only been working here for a little over a month, so it should be easy....but it's not. Ugh! I hope I have the strength to go through with it!

I'm a manager at my company but really want to get into what I love to do. The only thing stopping me is that what I love is very low pay, as in entry level since I have no experience. So I'm stuck saving money to quit and make probably 1/2 as much as I do now. Sometimes life's not fair.

Not looking forward to work tomorrow. I have lost my motivation for it lately.

Sometimes I feel like I'm walking on eggshells at work. I always want to do a good job but I'm always worrying that I'm going to screw up. It's mentally draining. What do I do?

I have to write my job application and i need to be finnished tomorrow. I don't know what to write or what to tell about myself. I don't even know myself why i should get that job...

Continuous job interviews that feel worse than stripping naked at a hazing ritual.

Feel like a loser at work, I have social anxiety and I struggle to talk to people. I work at a youth hostel as a housekeeper and there's only 13 of us in total, and everyone else seems to get on really well with each other. They're all really loud and confident and I'm so damn shy. I sit alone at lunch and everyone else sits together, I'm too scared to sit with them. I have done a few times before but I never really talk to them, because I just don't know what to say. I don't know :(

Il m'est difficile de recevoir des compliments au travail. J'ai l'impression que je ne les mérite pas, que je ne serai pas capable de répondre aux attentes, que je ne serai pas à la hauteur, que je vais finir par décevoir. Le niveau de stress augmente à tout coup même si je sais que c'est injustifié!

A coworker of mine's son was diagnosed with cancer. My coworker and I are responsible for making sure the shipping office stays afloat. After having all of her sons complications, I'm left with making sure everyone's problems are solved, cutting time with my family, and making myself feel completely overwhelmed. After recently getting married, I find myself having to really choose on staying at work longer to keep my sanity for the next day and spending precious time with my family.

I hate my job, fast food sucks, but yes better than being unemployed and having bills piled up every month...

I feel so run down and tired. I feel like I should be more engaged and enthusiastic about my job, but I find myself counting down the hours til the day is over

I work in a very busy office. Lots of teamwork to keep things going. New boss started in January. She is the epitome of a micromanager. Her mere presence puts everyone on edge. We all know how to do our respective jobs. She doesn't know how to do any of them. Yet she interferes numerous times a day. I love my coworkers and I have been there for almost 5 years. But this woman makes me want to go job hunting. I have numerous personal stressors too and I don't know how much longer I can continue.

I really need to work on my confidence. I'm hiding in the ladies toilets at work to try and calm down because I'm agonising about whether or not I'm doing a task right. What I really need to do is just do the task and then get feedback but it's so frustrating that I'm struggling like this!

Got thrown under the bus at work for something I didn't do. The person who was responsible didn't admit he made the mistake, and I didn't want to point fingers. So I just took it. Now I just want to leave work for the day... I don't mind if it was my fault. But it wasn't. And now everyone thinks I'm an idiot who doesn't know the basics. I want to find a new job now...
