I like my job ( the actual work ) , but it's a very toxic emotionally place

When work is tough, I find myself stressing over my weekends. Like I have to spend my time perfectly to offset a bad week but then I never feel like I've done the right thing or it's good enough. I feel exhausted and like I'm not allowed to, like I have no reason to be tired and then it causes me not to do something productive then I feel guilty.

Sometimes when I’m unhappy with my work situation, I remind myself of how much worse I felt when I was job hunting. Being unemployed and actively searching is worse than being employed. At least I don’t have the money stress anymore.

People at work probably think I have horrendous shits all the time... but really I just sit in there a couple extra minutes sometimes to hide from them

I just don't have motivation to go to work. It's so bad.

Feeling worse than usual about going to work today. I wish I could take every other week off! Or at least one week a month :(

I’ve been having the worst time at work. I’m so stressed and exhausted. I hate it. I really just wish I had decided on a different career. No support from anywsy

Everyone says to follow your dreams... but what happens when you can’t afford your dreams? Settle. We all settle in the jobs that are closest to us, because we can’t afford to move away to the states that have the jobs we want. Especially if you have children. Childcare is expensive. Forget our dreams. It’s nothing but fake lives.

I am having the hardest time getting a job when I am a smart person.

I was much more relaxed and confident at work today. The practice of daily meditation has helped me find my peace 🙂; I’m so grateful!

I honesty can’t handle this position anymore. I’m so exhausted. I’m just on edge wanting to cry. I love working with the kids but I’m tired of the drama with staff. No support from my boss. I’m tiredness guys. I know that I will be working somewhere new next year... but will it be better

I love my job. Teaching is my passion but around the summer time when kids on break and I should be happy and excited for some time off, it’s when I usually become more depressed and said and stressed.

I need so much support in my work! I could study special education all day, then meet the pupils and it is like I have learnt very little. The true way to know special needs is to know the children.

It's been months but I still couldn't find my first job ._.

Feeling such a lack of support at work. It makes me feel so terrible about myself. I’ve been injured at work and no one seems to care how I’m doing.

Every week I have a scheduling conflict that isn't my fault because I do the necessary paperwork and they forget or misplace it. I don't know what to do.

Annual reviews have me feeling... anxious and resentful. I wish my work place was actually collaborative and supportive. Most of the time it feels like my boss is only willing to acknowledge me when taking credit for my work or giving blame for my failures. It’s toxic, and I feel trapped.

I started a new job this week, and so far my boss isn’t the best communicator. He gives very little direction yet expects tasks to be completed a certain way. I spent the whole week confused and disoriented! Hoping that it will get easier as I get to know the work environment, but it’s stressful in the meantime.

I’m really struggling right now with work and I find it difficult really to stay focused I’m being treated differently from my work colleagues and they leave me out I genuinely find really alone for 8hours a day and I have no one to talk to or turn to

I am officially stuck at my job. The idea of making this job something I can bear is stressful enough without now having to follow through and do it. I guess it's time to knuckle down and work my ass off but I'm just not passionate about it.
