Stress at Work

I hate the underlying requirement to be social and [fake] overly nice and talkative to everyone in the office. I’m the sweetest person in the world, but goodness..I don’t want to make “small talk” with every single person I pass by all day long.. it’s exhausting. Then as I’m walking past to finish my work I hear the, “Ugh she’s so quiet” whispers. No, I’m not! I just have better things to do than join in on the daily gossip or negativity fest of how hard the job is and how nobody likes it smh

Co workers are drilling me for answers as to why I was off work sick...I owe them no explanation honestly, they can talk behind my back all they like. I truly hope my illness never happens to them but maybe only then they will fully understand How difficult it can be!

I hate my job and how unfair it is, Those who don't do anything get treated so good and those who work and do good get treated like shit.

Ugh, sick of my brain being preoccupied with whether or not my coworkers like me. I try my best and help out when I can. I know that the ones I like also like me in return so who cares about the rest? -Kicks brain-

After applying for at least 100 jobs and going on 2 dozen interviews, I was--once again--turned down for a position due to "lack of experience". How the heck is anyone expected to get experience if never given an opportunity. Just because I haven't done something before doesn't mean I'm incapable of learning it. I've never felt so hopeless in my entire life. Last week I literally almost killed myself after being turned down AGAIN at a company that really got my hope up abt being hired.

I don’t enjoy my job anymore. I cry almost everyday. I’m stressed because there are quotas to make and I know I can’t make them. The students in my program don’t want to be there. They don’t listen to myself or my staff. It makes it hard to come in and smile everyday.

To anyone working tomorrow, thank you for keeping your place open on behalf of those who may need your help. Holiday times are tough for all but you're making it a little easier even if some folks will be too self centered to show it.

Sometimes it’s hard not to take work home with you. I sometimes get so stuck on one thing and all I can do is keep repeating worst case scenarios in my head. When your job is dealing with peoples lives and health anxiety is a part of the job description I guess. I always think I going to get fired. I know I’m good at what I do but I’m not perfect.

I’m so sick of my job feeding me promises of growth when it’s holding me from it. I was told I was a candidate for the 2nd lead position but I’m not being developed and no one on the floor respects me because I’m younger than them. It discourages me everyday.

I hate with all my feeling united this only girl at my work that the only thing she does it's making other feel they're not enough. She thinks she's the only one that can do everything at work. She makes me feel uncomfortable and bad. I wish I could stop thinking about that outside of work but when you cross with a TOXIC person, it's way to difficult to stop caring of thinking of that.

My work had me change job positions. So I’m learning a new job position and going to get my masters degree full time at a university. I am also team lead of my department. I’m struggling with balancing all these responsibilities. It is taking its toll on me and I’ve been having anxiety episodes due to this.

There's this condescending co-worker that I originally trained that is always questioning and criticizing me. I can't stand her.

I truly feel as if my coworkers are plotting against me. It has happened before. It just makes me anxious and plagues my mind that I feel like I have a target on my back.

I’m currently working my first job and have been for about six months. This is my first holiday season and there’s been a lot of scheduling conflicts. It was an absolute nightmare finding people to cover shifts for me and now I’m convinced I’ll be fired because I communicated wrong or something. I’m so worried about it I haven’t been able to think about much else...

I am going to start a new job this Christmas, I am not sure if i have the potential to do good in that job. All i know is that God has given me an opportunity and I don't wanna waste this opportunity. I feel anxious yes but I will do my best to be better.

I’m a teacher and this is the day before break—the past few weeks have been so stressful with everything I had to get done. We just had our big presentation, and that was the last thing I had to do. It’s such a relief!

Due to a coworker dragging her heals I’m not going to meet a deadline tomorrow. That means I have to be the one to explain and handle the stress. Ugh.

The assistant is jealous of me because I'm faster at my job then here. She made it know monday and the most annoying part monday in less than 5 mins she told the whole place and I worked with her today and everyone knew what happen monday. Which was really nothing she was just jealous I had more clients than her. But she told everyone I was rushing and took peoples turn. Ugh I hate people like that.
