Stress at Work

The second I left my old job, I noticed my anxiety levels decreased significantly. At that job my boss would belittle me, make mean comments, and I started to feel like I wasn’t good enough. I couldn’t even ask a simple question without her rolling her eyes or getting extremely anxious. If you’re ever in that situation, GET YOURSELF OUT OF IT. No one deserves to be treated that way. In the end I only stayed for the money. But money is not worth risking your mental health & confidence.

Work politics is driving me up the wall. I am trying to stay out of it, but it's awful. That is all.

As I've been starting to pay more attention to my automatic thoughts I realized that almost every time I make a mistake at work I mentally call myself dumb. Lol Not sure where that came from, but it definitely clued me in that I need to work on self-compassion. I don't think other people who make mistakes at work are dumb, so maybe I can use that frame of reference to be kinder to myself.

If your job is to tell me how to do my job, then you should probably at least KNOW HOW to do my job. Just saying.

No idea how I'm working in retail with social anxiety. Every single interaction I have with a customer/colleague, I feel sick. I feel like I'm going to get fired soon tbh because I suck.

It is hard to be an effective leader when full of anxiety, self doubt, and worry

I have enough of the constant negativity of my colleagues. I come to work feeling content and my good mood is crashed within minutes of entering the staff room. So many toxic people around me wants me to withdraw into my shell and be far away from people.

Waking up at 6am to feed farm animals and THEN eating breakfast is hard.

Super tired of the sarcasm and negativity from coworkers on a daily basis. When will it ever end?! My goodness.

My work mantra for the day: the knowledge I have now is good enough. I am continually learning new things.

I wish I could quit my job.

I’ve got through a week that looked tough on Monday, just one more day to give my best. I hope everyone can say the same by the end of the day.

I had a panic attack at my new job. An ambulance had to be called and it was very embarrassing. I’m having trouble dealing with this because I’m so grateful to have this job. It is an absolute dream for my chosen profession to work where I do. I’m afraid I’m going to mess it up or have another one of these attacks. I found a primary care doctor. I think my rising anxiety might be linked to some small abuse I suffered as a child. He suggested a therapist and I’m making an appointment.

Another meeting, another pass. God, I get more rejection than a teen with acne and braces. I’m so close to quitting. Washed up before 40. Idk wtf people want after 17 years. I’m an inferior product. Time to pack it in and get a jump on career #2.

Okay, I feel like I am failing at life because I am just a full time student. I am going through mental health problems right now and taking on other people’s stress. I do feel drained but compared to other students who are working part time and studying. I feel I have nothing to complain about. But I still feel mentally and physically exhausted. Am I failing at life or something??

I’ve made a horrible mistake. I quit my part time job just so I could end up at another part time job (it was originally full time). Now I’m starting realize after driving there how far it is. My shift will be 10 hrs Saturday and Sunday, driving there takes about 1. I don’t want to just give up now like a job hopper. If I can just hang on for at least 3 months I can gtfo and move on.

I hustled for about two months to get a new job. I got to the end of almost every interview process (there were 5 or 6) and was then turned down. I recently flew to Seattle thinking I had a job for certain and was turned down this week. I don’t know what is wrong with me. I’m embarrassed and extremely depressed and disheartened after a year of building up my self confidence.

I used to be a full-time student (18 credit hours) and dropped. I want to get back into the swing of things as a part-time student and working part-time, but I'm worried about becoming overwhelmed again. I don't know if I could handle balancing both when it seems like I struggle as I am.

Booked on a show tonight. Haven't been on stage in a while or a fan of myself in general. Just trying to get out of this funk and have a good time.

My boyfriend has been going to school for his CDL. Today is his test. I’m so stressed but excited for him. He’s been incredibly overwhelmed. Constantly waking up at night, nervous that he’ll fail. Falling asleep too late. Eating smaller portions. I have so much faith in him. I know he has this! I’ve loved taking care of him the last few weeks. I’m praying all day for you honey! 🧡

I left my purse at work and did not even realize it until I got close to home. I couldn’t go back because the gates close at a certain time. I won’t be able to go back until tomorrow and I leave for a vacation in the morning. I actually really hate myself because I’m such an idiot. I won’t be able to sleep now. On top of that, I had things thrown left and right at me during work. It’s been so stressful and I was just too excited to leave that I did this stupid mistake.

ive started a full time job recently and im honestly so proud of the things im getting through e.g. waking up early everyday, social anxiety, all the new stuff im learning, but if it gets too much i can quit because im on a gap year and tbh im only saving to go on a trip in abroad by myself. i wish i had better social skills and that trying not to dissociate wasnt quite hard at times, but im glad regardless of that.

Just recently became a supervisor at work and it feels like all of my staff (who used to be my coworkers) do not respect me or see me as a supervisor. They are always over stepping and undermining me. It makes my anxiety and depression plummet into an all time low. I am struggling lately.
