I want to leave my current job, but I’m scared because of all the bills, credit cards, rent etc... Well it’s not ok to come in to work, and hate every second of it.

I feel like I can't trust anyone I work with and always feel like I'm not doing enough or that people are talking bad about me

I feel trapped and helpless because my job is tedious and exhausting, but jobs aren't easy to find around here and I have to keep what I could get.

Got abused by so many rude customers today! But I’m proud of myself for staying calm, not taking it personally, and helping them as much as I could. Such a relief to be in bed after a long shift.

Today has been so hard. I have been sleepy all day and barely had any energy. I made little progress and that stresses me out.

I finally submit my resignation letter. Can't tolerate the inconsistency on my company anymore.

I am very shy and have social anxiety so I avoid talking to people but then I get anxious not talking to people. I made a goal to speak up more. Today I spoke to several people at work, joined some people for lunch, and spoke out in a conference call. I WILL BEAT THIS.

I worry about my future plan.. I know I can do it, but I don't know how. I need someone to light up the way I have to take

I stress myself too much. No one expects me to complete tasks as soon as they come in but i am so eager to do a good job that i get stressed when i take a longer time

Working with children can be very exhausting. I’ve recovering from a pretty awful cold and honestly I haven’t been my very best. It’s really tough. I feel like I’m not good enough. Like maybe I shouldn’t be doing this as a career....

I’m starting a new job on Tuesday, I’m super nervous because I have no experience in the coffee industry and I don’t want to mess up

Already 3 months in a job that is so stressfull. I dont like it at all and I feel very anxious every day, trying to show myself as a very calmed person. I am thinking to quit, but right now I dont have much options. I need the salary, but I think in my health.

I have recently come to realise that I may have authority issues. I'm irrationally afraid of my bosses (its been like this for years, since my 2nd yr in my career, a few jobs ago) Yet I feel like I need to please them, but am unable to communicate properly with them because I'm so afraid! Probably stems from childhood (still figuring that part out). I'm 8 years into my career but feel like a fresh baby. Been doing my best to address the situation in this job but need more advice, if u have any.

I had to get a new job due to moving, and it is so much more stressful than my last job. Not only is it mentally draining it’s also physically exhausting and I don’t know what to do.

My bosses demoted me when I got back from my vacation. They had 3 pages of ridiculous reasons why I sucked, and limited my job to nothing... ie pressuring me to quit. I used to work 14 hour - 7 days a week for them, not getting paid for overtime. I was so devoted to their business. I’m so confused, and hurt. My anxiety and depression is really bad right now, I really loved my job.

Ive only had two real jobs and neither of those went well. In my last one, i worked so hard for it and did my best and they fired me after only 4 days. I have so much anxiety about working, i really need to get a job but im so scared everyone will hate me and ill do so badly and mess everything up. Has anyone else ever felt like this?

Ugh... I want to be positive when it comes to my co-workers... But to see how any person will take the time and energy to make you look bad is just heart breaking to me because I want to believe that they are more than this. Women especially can't be happy for one another and that's upsetting but if feel good making my patients smile and also come upfront with my mistakes and not hide behind an excuse or being scared of the outcome. I thank this app and God for that. Keep strong you are loved

I was in the hospital for a week and a half 2 and a half weeks ago for my mental illness and although my supervisors have been very understanding, my doctor and I feel I need another week off. The anxiety I'm feeling over missing work is almost as bad as my mental illness. I just know I'm not ready to go back yet. Feeling freaked.

I started this job about 8 months ago. They say that I won’t be fully knowledgeable about my daily tasks until I’ve been there for 1-2 years. When things are going good it’s like watching paint dry but when shit hits the fan it hits hard. When shit does hit the fan I’ll ask questions about why they are doing what they are doing to fix the issue and I get treated like I’m retarded. That sends me right into an anxiety attack and then nobody can figure out why I’m quite the rest of the day.

Most of my stress comes from work.
