Applying for jobs that you know you're qualified for and feeling the knots in your stomach getting worse and worse, when you don't get a callback. Just automated email hell. I'm a human being. I love to work and work hard. Just give me a moment of your time!

Negative coworkers really make it difficult to stay positive and focused on my job. Let alone to stay mindful. I do my best not to let them bring me down but sometimes it's overwhelming. I tell myself that negative thoughts and people will always be around. It's how I handle them is what matters.

I hate it when I work hard and others around me are treating it like a holiday camp x

It's hard to watch all my friends succeed and talk about what they want to do when it's been a huge struggle for me to find a job in the field I want

I came home from work today and cried only to check my email and see that I have a job interview in a field I actually want to work in!!!! I am SO happy. I'm praying it works out.

Pacifica in action! I had a hard meeting today with loud and defensive coworkers. Luckily last night I did the "Positive Visualization" meditation and I used it in the meeting! In a moment where I would normally have gotten emotional or defensive I was able to retreat back to that meditation and I swear it made all the difference!

Maintaining my courage and confidence to reinvent myself and reclaim my creativity inspite of condescending remarks from a job recruiter.

Hired on for part time but tomorrow starts a 39 hour work week. This is going to be... fun?

I work as a Mental Health Technician on an Air Force base. This environment is draining me emotionally. It's stress on top of stress on top of other people's stress

My job is very stressful, and I'm always under a lot of pressure. The way my co-workers act I'm always feeling like I'm not good enough. Sometimes I'm so tired of it I want to go home sick just to get away.

I'm looking for a job right now and it's just so depressing. Reading the requirements and I only meet maybe half of them. I'm almost 26, haven't been able to hold a job for longer than a few months, and not much education to show. I went to culinary school but then I changed majors and now I'm way behind.

I've been unemployed for a while now and I still haven't found a job 😰 I'm stressed out and feeling hopeless.

I hate the shame I feel when colleagues talk about all the work they did over vacation when I did none. I feel like I'm not contributing appropriately. But at the same time it seems absurd to feel like I am less worthy for taking time to myself.

I'm so sick of placeholder jobs. The kind where you never make enough money, your coworkers are nasty dysfunctional jerks, and for the sake of self-preservation, you have to be paranoid. I'm ready for a real career. A life path. It's something I can't stop thinking about, yet there's never been a clear answer as far as what direction to take.

The environment in my workplace is so emotionally draining. It's like you're not allowed to smile or laugh. It's like they're going to judge me in everything I do. I always lose my motivation. I'm working because I'm feeling that I'm just required to do it. I want to quit. :(

I hate my job so much but it's not feasible to quit right now

Sometimes it just feels you can't get ahead. No matter how much you accomplish there is a fat stack of more work the next day. It is relentless and without end. Makes me tired.

Gotta keep reminding myself this job is better than my last and keep applying for other opportunities elsewhere. It's going to be okay.

Today I was in a collaborative group with my boss, who doesn't really want me on her campus this year. I made it through though and I was professional and polite all day!

Everything I've been doing has been under the most insane microscope lately. I've been here for 2 months & have had over 100 meetings. Today was the first time I was late to one and I got reamed out by my boss after. She kept telling me I was being redundant & not paying attention. But I was paying attention!!! I have no idea what to do!! She kept saying that I need to pull my shit together but I thought I was doing okay. I ugly cried for so long today.

Depression took over, my mind has started getting foggy and I'm forgetting important things. Just got news that my contract isn't going to be renewed. Deep down I know it needed to happen because I was unhappy, I just wish I was the one to tell them I won't be staying.
