Stress at Work

I finally found a job that I really enjoy! I was so stressed about finding a new job. & I finally got one that I have been wanting for a very long time!

Stuck in a job that I hate where quitting is not an option. Looking for ways to find peace in the midst of chaos as stress from my job intensifies my anxiety. I'm always coming home drained and all I want to do is get in the bed. All I can hope for is a better tomorrow and to try not to allow work or people to change the positive mood that I am working towards. Learning to take it all day by day.

I'm starting a new job today, and I'm feeling very anxious about it. I keep on thinking that I'm going to mess it up somehow, but the truth is we all make mistakes when are first starting a job, especially a new one. I'll just have to relax and be myself!

I finally confronted my boss and told them everything I felt. I'm so relived that they were nice about it. Huge weight has FINALLY been lifted from my shoulders!!!!!

I'm dreading going to work tomorrow I'm under so much stress and I can barely cope. I can also hear colleagues talking about me behind my back which is getting me down. I just want to leave but I need to stay to pay for the bills.

I hate my job. I am so much better than my job. I have a lot of student loans to pay off and yet I'm a receptionist. I have a bachelor's degree and I'm a receptionist. I have so many loans to pay off, but I go to this stupid job that pays terrible. I want so bad to do something else, but I don't know what to do. I look at job boards all the time and nothing looks interesting to me. I'm stuck and I can't seem to get the motivation to do anything about it.

Today is a bad day at work for my anxiety. I didn't get my work done and the higher ups are back from vacation. Just seeing them at the corner of my eye makes me really anxious :(

Work makes me feel so low and discouraged. I'm regularly disrespected by senior management and I don't know when it's going to get better. Night time is really hard because I know I have to wake up and go to work again.

I really need a job but I'm so scared. This will be my first job and I'm so shy and I have social anxiety. I keep thinking I'm going to mess up and get fired.

I love my job but I wish that I felt more appreciated when I bust my ass while I'm there.

Having a hard time figuring out what I'm passionate about. My current professional is interesting but incredibly exhausting. I think I'm ready to move on... But to what? Anyone have any suggestions on how to move forward/find your passion?

I'm self employed, and it irritates me when people act like I don't work, or expect me to do jobs for free because of what I do. I'm not a free tech support point for my parents. No, I can't just fix my brother's CV. If you want a poster designing for something that's going to earn you money, of course I want paying to do it! It's annoying, dismissive and rude.

I absolutely hate my job. I work as a server at a senior living place and it gives me so much anxiety. I get so nervous interacting with the works and people there:( I feel so awkward and I don't think I'm cut for the job. I haven't been working long, but I don't think I can do this job anymore. I don't know:(

Once again, I feel like dropping everything. It's not a matter of the job I'm at and what I do, but I feel like there are always days where my depression gets the best of me. I just need to focus on the reason why I chose this job in the first place... just a couple more weeks... hopefully😞

I need put in time out for my attitude today. If everyone would stop talking to me it would help.

I work three jobs and I find it really hard to relax. My anxiety is through the roof. I wake up every morning with my chest tight and I feel disgusting. I just can't wait until it gets easier. My manic episodes have driven me towards success. I just hope I can get there.

I applied for a job online today. I hope I get called in for an interview but at the same time I'm really scared. I just hope everything goes well.

I started a new job today and was super nervous the day went okay except for when going on a group tour of the building i was the only one who forgot my security badge so I couldn't get back through, everyone laughed and I know its silly and I probably should of laughed too but I felt so embarrassed and stupid and then found it really difficult to hold a conversation or concentrate and I was doing fine socialising until then, I just went bright red and started shaking, I hate my social anxiety.

I am turning in my two weeks tomorrow even though i have only been at this job for 3 months but i dislike it so greatly. I feel guilty because i normally work hard to be extremely responsible in my professional life but it has given me extreme anxiety and has affected my depression in the worst of ways. So screw being professional. Not at the sake of my own happiness.

I know that the fact that I got a job won't magically make me better but I wish I could just feel fulfilled and enjoy the routine and predictability of it. Take comfort in that. Instead I count the minutes all day and at the end I feel that I'm stretched a little thinner. I wish I would feel like I accomplished something instead of falling deeper into this pit of numbness.

i've always struggled with anxiety around authority or higher figures than myself. whenever i'm at work & on shift with my manager i get this bad anxiety cause i feel i have to perform perfectly or i'll get in trouble since this persons in charge of my employment. my anxiety gets so bad i feel i may cry or throw up just at the thought of working with my manager. it also makes no sense as my manager is actually nice & isn't usually that strict when on shift but i can't stop the anxiety around it.
