Feeling guilty having my resume out there while still at a job but I deserve better than what I'm getting

At my workplace it's not survival of the fittest, it's survival of the favourites. Since disclosing my struggles with depression and anxiety, I've become a target for harassment and intimidation. I'm trying to find a new job that will make me happy, but how do I survive here until then?

I had the saddest day at work today. Ive learnt that one of my colleague has a terminal cancer and has few days or weeks to live. It was so hard to hear that from her. It so sad, horrible and unfair. She is such a kind person. I didnt know what to tell her to make her feel better, her situation is so bad that nothing i cd have said would have made any difference. I cant imagine what is going throught. Can i ask you to wish her get better, who knows miracles happen.

My job is good but my colleagues are horrible. Everyone backstabs everyone, the atmosphere is suffocating and i can't help but let it get to me.

I think the comment that stuck the most with me in one of my work stress post is: "You are NOT your job". I really had it backwards before, and after realizing that my life kind of revolves around my job this is one sentence I repeat in my mind over and over again. It helps to put things that happen at my job into perspektive.

I’m handing my 4 weeks in today for my job. I’m so so nervous to give this to my boss. But it is well worth it. After almost 2 years of being downgraded by my boss for no reason I am standing up and not staying in a place I’m no longer happy with. I’m going to miss my co workers like no other however I know I will still see them. For once I need to do what is best for me and that would be leaving! I can do this!

My life is a job I never get paid for.

My co worker is an extremely narcisist, competitive and self absorbed person that spends most of her time searching failures on my work, complaining and putting the rest of workers against me. I can assure I've never done nothing bad to her, and I've done every single day my best to make team instead of rivals, but she prefer making my work and life more difficult. My boss knows it but he doesn't know how to manage it. I feel miserable, nervous and anxious every day. Don't know how to end this.

The biggest work stress I've ever had to date is when your old manager leaves and a new one comes in. Oh, the many changes the new boss wants to make... Change is a constant yet most of us find it hard to accept and adapt.

A tip for anyone involved in work drama. This came to me straight from my boss in dofferent situations and during my origional interview. At the end of the day, You don’t leave your workplace with them, they don’t pay your bills, you don’t pay their bills. Just another body in the room. Make the best of it while you are there

I have a good job but my depression means I just can't engage at work. I can't take it seriously and I'm struggling to care about the work.

my job is literally murdering me

I work for a big corporation and it goes against my morals. I like the people (mostly), but it's stressful and I don't feel like I'm doing something with my life. How can I keep justifying going to work for a job I hate when all I get out of it is money for student loans?

I still resent my supervisor for telling me to get over my paranoia / depression. At least she's moved on to another job but her words still sting.

Couldn’t stop crying at work today and it was both frustrating & embarrassing. I just hope to god no one noticed. No one said anything anyway.

I don't want to go to work today having to deal with my coworkers just stresses me out because they are so irresponsible

I just realized that without noticing, I've been tricking myself into thinking I never meet my goals at work. If I do meet a goal, I immediately set a new, tougher one. And then it seems that I can never make enough progress because I'm always moving the goal posts.

Working long days over many years has taking its toll. The cost to my own health is now apparent. Sitting at a screen with the pressures company success dependent on my performance has left me with severe stress, obese and with heart problems. Signed off a month with fitness referral I MUST take this time to challenge my own priorities and change this distructice work/home life balance. Good luck to all of you with your own stressses and battlefields 😜👌

I work in one of the busiest stores in my *country* and Christmas Season us upon us. And that means rude,selfish customers. Well...more than usual. I am dreading work already to the point that I struggle to get up or get out of the shower even which is do unlike me. It is physically and mentally draining every day for the next two months. I feel like I can't complain about it in case non retail workers will be like 'it's not exactly a challenging job', or 'why don't you just get a proper job so?

I'm supposed to be starting a new job soon. It's not a great job, but having some money and something to do might be helpful. I'm still not looking forward to getting out of my comfort zone.

I work with dogs, and I absolutely love my job. It can be stressful, but at the end of the day the stress doesn’t come home with me which is a great change from my last job. However, management keeps screwing me and all my coworkers over. We’re so low on staff, the schedule is a complete mess, and management just doesn’t seem to care and doesn’t try to hire people. It’s getting very annoying, especially when they start to expect you to stay til 9 or 10 every night.

I feel like I can't make it in future. I've lost. Everyone here may be trained for their jobs, but I feel like I'm doing worse even though I'm trying my best to learn.
