I’m sitting in the parking lot waiting to go into work and I feel horrible like I just wanna leave.

I’m going in tomorrow to hand in my resignation from a very toxic job situation.

I’m over just working my ass off to pay bills. There’s got to be another way.

I’m in an area where customers tend to be very toxic. I could handle my job if they were a lot nicer and more understanding.

I put in my two week notice. I have no idea what I’m doing. I know I needed to do it. To move forward and be happier and just enjoy life but I can’t help worrying and feeling like I’ve made a mistake. I know in the end it was the right thing to do but the worries about making ends meet is really weighing on me. Wish me luck that I’m able to find something that makes me happy and soon.

I just turned in my application to the pipefitters union. I've been preparing for a while now. I'm off of methadone now and got my driver's license and I am trying to be positive and confident about nailing this!

I would be having my very first job interview tomorrow. I am feeling excited yet anxious. I hope I can make it.

Work has really been stressing me out lately. The environment is too unstable! Hoping to find a new job soon...

I just started a new job and I feel completely under qualified and like an imposter. My new coworkers are all older than I am and have produced outstanding work. I’m worried my lack of experience means I won’t be able to perform to their standards and I’ve fooled the hiring team. On top of that, despite how welcoming everyone is, I’m convinced they will all hate me and I won’t fit in. I’ve been dreading each day of my first week.

Sometimes I can’t handle the haters and poisonous coworkers. So many fake people, I can’t take it sometimes

Came home from working an 8 hour shift and my mind is racing. I can’t help replaying all the mistakes I made and conversations I had. I just want to sleep 😔

The possibility that I might have had a snow day made me sad when the roads were cleared. But at least I have a job!

Work was really hard today. Anxiety took over. I feel like everyone thinks I'm weird. They all kind of keep their distance with me. I know I'm not too opening but I do talk to them but I guess I'm not the type of person that someone wants to make a friend with..?

I'm working overly hard, trying to impress my bosses and colleagues and make them like me. However, 9 out of 10 days I burn out long before the end of my shift and then resent the work and my colleagues for it. I want to change but I get so caught in the businesses of the work that I don't realise how I feel until later when my mood is already sour and when I finally get home I feel disappointed with myself for letting myself down once again.

Just applied for a new job. Been applying for awhile now. Hopefully I’ll get one soon! Trying to stay positive and hopeful :)

Lost a trial last week. I have another this week. Last weeks trial doesn’t impact what will happen in this one but losing has triggered stress and anxiety. I just need to believe in my abilities and self. I’ve won many trials before and I will win more in the future.

I'm a janitor for multiple banks in my city, it's great pay considering I can take as long or as little as I want to finish a building so everything is my pace, but people are so disgusting and disrespectful. I get that you have a janitor coming in to clean 6 days a week but the fact these people can't even pick up a SPILT bag of chips (and walk over it 100 times throughout the day) has made me so hateful and frustrated...

I’m applying for jobs and I got my first rejection letter! I actually don’t feel that bad about it surprisingly... it’s sort of motivating me to apply to more

Can I vent? I work with entitled, intense customers that are demanding and barely polite (in an almost backhanded way as a robotic insincere formality... Not in a genuine sense) ... And what REALLY frustrates me is that I know that people like that are popular and paid well because they "deliver results" and "get stuff done" for their company regardless of how rude they may be. But at what cost? It's like people have forgotten how to be genuinely kind, thoughtful, appreciative, and polite. Ugh.

I work really hard... But I'm a very reserved and quiet person, so no one really notices what I do. I'm fed up of being invisible and getting no recognition or appreciation for what I do. I can't wait to leave this job, I'm tired of being underappreciated. I criticise myself enough as it is even without the things I actually do well going unnoticed.

I can’t stand when people are rude for no reason, just can’t stand it. I stick up for myself but sometimes I think it may just be best to ignore them and not let there attitudes affect me. Especially after a shift of serving your simply exhausted physically and mentally 😔
