In spite of the hardships of work. I tried to do my best.

Had to be called in because a fellow coworker weasled their way out of their shift. However, I discovered how needed I was and was glad I was able to assist my work family. They needed me in more ways than one💚 Feels good to be part of something bigger.

Wondering when I will wake up and actually want to go to work. At this point I just want to sleep.

My son was stillborn almost a year ago and I work as a newborn photographer. Really considering giving up on it lately. I’m just too sad and find myself hoping for no new sessions everyday.

The hardest part of work for me isn't the actual work... it's getting along with the people I work with.

I am home sick from work today. I always get anxious staying home sick even when I need it. I have a great and understanding boss but I still worried I will be seen as slacking or unreliable. Oh well.

I have bad paranoia. I feel like people are against me or hate me or talk about me. I wish I was different. I also have social anxiety. Those two things are a killer for relationships at work.

All I do is second guess myself and consistently get it wrong. I feel like giving up sometimes.

I just started a new full time job... career actually, in a field I went to school for. I am just so scared I will somehow mess up and lose this chance at a brilliant path. We all will make mistakes, I know that. I just hope for myself, and everyone who reads this... to not be so hard on ourselves, easier said than done I know... but we all have to start somewhere I guess. Sending love and healing.

Actually had a decent day. My anxiety was really high but I ended up enjoying today. I’ve decided that I’m just going to push through this year. Even though I have been given very difficult people to work with. I will have more seniority and then next year I might be able to speak up.

I was fired yesterday. Worked my butt off for my boss and fully respected her wishes even if I didn’t agree with them. The only reason I was let go is that I was not okay with being verbally abused or with employees under my supervision being verbally abused. I suppose it is for the best but it is taking some processing to say the least.

Nervous about tomorrow last Thursday a coworker was confronted about her poor work performance and she took it as an attack and my manager was off when it happened she’ll hear and see emails all about it tomorrow just nervous for what’s to come next.

Decided that this job isn't for me. It's not rewarding and I hate working weekends. I just wish I was qualified or had experience in a role that was 9-5 Monday to Friday. I don't wanna work in retail or customer service. It's not great for my head and it just gets me down

I can’t move up and it’s the old boy network where I work. I’m the only female. I want to start my own business but I need insurance and can’t afford to throw my job away.

I’ve been out of work for a few months. I interviewed for a new job Wednesday and I am going back to shadow on Tuesday. I feel like they liked me but I’m afraid to get my hopes up and not get the job.

I get anxious about going to work, so I stay home. Then I get anxious about missing work. It's a vicious cycle. Anyone else struggle with this problem? Any tips to help me out?

Worried about my boss observing me tomorrow.

Some days I feel bullied at work and forced to snap back. I lose all sense of patience and just want to throw a fit at the loud and talkative person in my office. This person is kind, but sharing space with this person crushes me everyday. There is no respect for boundaries and this person is mean and says nasty things in general that are often probably targeted at me. There is no space to change offices, no way to work from home, and I love my job. I'm sad to think I would leave it because of..

My job can be physically and mentally taxing. Some days I end up sore and needing to take a bath. I get physically anxious sometimes when I don’t know how to tackle something.

It is extremely hard to work with the public! I can’t believe I’ve lasted as long as I have! Put me behind a desk. Smh

Yesterday I got up the courage to talk to my boss about something that had been festering inside me since October. I was true to me and I stood up for myself. I’m still anxious I have to talk to my new boss about it, (and they are the one who did the awful thing). They weren’t my boss at the time, so I didn’t bring it up. Now I must, and I’m a little scared.

A few years back I was pushed to my limit at my job & had a bully for a boss who enjoyed seeing me breakdown. She told me that I needed to get more work done & pull it together. I asked for her help. She said that was not her job. So I went to my dr & broke down. She encouraged me to change meds & go on short term leave. That way I didn’t do something to lose my job & this way they had to make accommodations for me. The best decision ever!
