Financial stress is one of the worst stresses

I'm constantly afraid of making a mistake. I hate my own obsessive thoughts that make me slow and unproductive because I'm so afraid of messing up.

I got anxious at work yesterday and left early. Not 100% sure of the reason, I think I am no longer happy with my job. I need to make an effort as I really am grateful that i have a job. I cannot allow how I feel to interfere with my job.

Anyone else call out of work because you’re depressed? I’m at my lowest I’ve felt in a while but I feel guilty about lying about why I can’t work.

I was laid off in July. Had a phone interview Monday that went poorly and have barely made it out of bed since. Need to get it together because I have two interviews tomorrow, and one Friday.

I can't stand how people talk 💩 at my work. If you have an issue or some sort of critique say it respectfully and tell that person, that also helps people learn from possible mistakes or explain themselves about why they chose to do something. I wish people would stop acting all childish like a bunch of high schoolers, it isn't professional.

My old store manager has been continually coming into the store (when I’m not there) and trying to get a coworker/friend to say how awful I’m doing in my new position as assistant store manager. I’m trying not to let it bring me down even though it is so frustrating.

I miss working my old shift where I felt like I belonged and everyone got along. Everyone is divided among my current shift, and I've had multiple people inform me that some of my co-workers were talking about me. I'm civil, I don't complain, I don't shit talk my co-workers, and I get along with everyone, yet for whatever reason people choose to bad mouth me (and others). It's at the point where I despise working this shift and the environment feels toxic.

I've invested a lot of time and money into a degree and job field I'm no longer sure I want to be in after a year... I applied for a full time opening at one of my jobs but after the meeting I just had about my recent performance (lots of negative interactions with patrons) I'm pretty sure I just blew my chances. I started crying in the middle of the meeting in front of my deparrment head and the library director. I am trying so hard but it doesn't feel like they see that, director especially.

I feel like I've put so much work into everything I've been involved in at work and everyone else is getting to progress onto better things than me. It's making me feel like I've failed somewhere, even though deep down I know the quality of my work is good.

My boss keeps wanting me to do more than I possibly can in a shift. He gets upset with me when I can do a whole list of things in one day. It's really frustrating me to the point I want to quit.

Sometimes I find the thought of going to work almost unbearable, it causes me a huge amount of anxiety and has caused huge issues for me re: employment in the past. I'm just trying to get myself in a healthy, positive frame of mind so that I can start my new job without any stress... 😑

I'm feeling so low and depressed right now. I have so much workload this week on top of extremely tight deadlines that I can't help but break down. I spent this day crying and panicking over the smallest things like getting an email and being called into an emergency meeting. I hate it.

You can handle all things with Christ our Lord. You’ve got this! The battle is already won, you’re just here to prove your faith. Stand strong in faith honey!

One of the things that makes my anxiety worse is the feeling that I am not good enough or I am incompetent and working in environment that is very mentally challenging filled with very intelligent people only makes me feel stupid and reinforces my anxiety.

I've got a good job, but I just can't seem to get myself to go to work. Everyone I knew left for other jobs, and I'm there with no one around I'm wondering if anyone knows how to make themselves just go. They need me there as this is busy season. Ugh

I'm feeling so low now. I currently work at a supermarket and my colleagues keep judging me and putting me down for working there after uni. They make me feel like I don't belong there. And then I come home and all my dad can talk about is my future career, trying to force me into making decisions I literally cannot make at this point in my life. On top of all that I'm doubting my new friendships, and I feel like everyone is always looking down on me. What did I do wrong with my life

I’ve been home from work dealing with depression and anxiety in almost two months now. Soon I’m going back to work and I realise I really, really don’t want to! My colleauges are always complaining and it’s a negative environment, and I’m very sensitive to that. I don’t know what to do 😔

I need to leave my current full time job to stay healthy. I’m trying to get better and heal with my doctors helping me, but I can’t stay in such an emotionally draining job. Thing is I don’t know how to tell them I want to leave.

Someone who is not my supervisor accused me of breaking the rules yesterday. I almost had a panic attack over it, but thankfully I had coworkers to support me.
