Stress at Work

Today I was offered a new job and instead of accepting right away I asked for a higher starting salary! It was nerve-wracking, as I have never done this before, but I am proud of myself and I feel like I did my part in closing the gender pay gap!!! 🙌

Tomorrow’s my first day working at a 4.5 star restauraunt in the heart of Washington D.C. please wish me luck y’all, the last place I worked at was a 2.7 star pub and that was 5 months ago since I’ve worked.

I’m grateful I have a job. But I still don’t make enough to pay all my bills :( so I stress 24/7

I’m only 17 so I don’t have a serious job but the one I have now I hate with a passion. Can’t wait to get out of that place.

Ever since I started work, I have had no time to go gym, I've been eating really poorly, I've been feeling so exhausted but I can't sleep, I have trouble contacting my friends and family regularly, I have been behind on my studies, I feel constantly drained all the time.. I really don't know how other people do it, I feel like I'm a mistake or something, I don't know how to function right

I can’t help but feel excluded by everyone I work with.. I am always seeking validation from people I barely know, I am mentally exhausted & lost..

I'm proud that I have managed to turn my ladies hair around from the distressed state it was in when I first started doing her hair

I am absolutely in love with my job. I help people every day, but at the end of the day, I find that I need help after focusing on everyone else's problems.

I started a new job today and it went absolutely horrible. It ruined my day! Need some positivity.

I had difficulty finding work most of this year, and I am blessed to have pushed through. It feels uncomfortable to have to hide my financial stress because most people have no idea what it's like to only have $20 total until your next paycheck. I know I will get back on my feet financially, but it's scary to have to scrape by.

I really want to quit my job and find a new one. I’ve started looking and applying to different places. My current job just causes me so much stress and anxiety, but I’m worried I won’t get called for any interviews. Also scared I’m going to get fired and lose my apartment. I’m just not doing well

My boss thinks I'll never leave no matter how bad she treats me. Yesterday I told her because of her actions she is now on a 30 day probation. I know she won't actually change so I'm going to take these 30 days to solidify my connections in the industry and start consulting. I feel empowered

I work for a small company and my boss continually takes my schedulers side in any situation. My scheduler has been treating me like total crap the entire time I have worked here (2+ years). And obviously going to my boss isn’t an option. I need this job because I’m going to school right now to become a nurse and I need every penny! I hate when people can’t treat everyone equally!!!

Been at my job almost 10 years except for a small break, i quit and went to work for another place for a short time and my current job gave me more money to come back. Well recently the job i went to for that short time wants me to come back and work there in a different department, not sure if pay will be greater less or equal. My current job puts so much stress on me it drives me crazy and it is a lot of drama. The other place is more professional. Not sure what to do...

Covering a small team in work temporarily. Not officially a supervisor or manager however have been told to do certain things. Always a laugh when your team get bitchy and rude when you ask them to not get too loud as we are by conference room. My words got twisted and my team decide to go on break and have a good butch about me. Sat in my friends car crying after work. Never felt like such a mug in my life. Not to mention worthless

This is the 3rd job in 4 months that I’ve stopped showing up for after 2 shifts. I don’t know what’s wrong with me. This isn’t me. I need help.

I’m proud of myself for cancelling a commitment today because it’s clear I just can’t manage it on top of everything else. I think I did it in a calm, professional manner with respect for myself and my mental health.

I just called in sick to work for the first time in my life. My anxiety usually stops me from doing it, and I can't stop thinking about the call now. I always work when I'm ill and my friends and family get really worried. It was the right thing to do but for some reason I hate myself for doing it. It's not like I lied, I am too ill to work but I still feel like I've done something wrong

I can’t find a job and it is not because I am lazy I am very proactive. The job market is tough and I have everything crashing down at once and I would like a see a sliver of hope soon...

Today at work I heard I'll be having a new co-worker on my area. Is it normal to feel scare of him/her?. Is it normal to feel like she/him could be better than me and feel like I'd be left behind and be forgotten?... It's not like I want all the attention for me, but I guess It'd be nice to hear that I'm important at my job, from time to time... I don't know...

I am a female who works in law enforcement.. over worked &under slept like most people. My significant other doesn’t understand the struggles and stress that comes with my job.. it’s very frustrating because he can’t wrap his head around why some days I come home happy &others I come home frustrated, stressed & sometimes upset.. he thinks I just sit around & don’t do anything all day just because my job isn’t as labor intensive as being a contractor like himself.
