Stress at Work

I’m an anxious introvert and have trouble speaking up in meetings at my workplace. Sometimes, I feel that I have good ideas but am too afraid to say anything because 1) I Get flustered when all eyes are on me and 2) I constantly feel like I’m being judged (even though most of the time this is just in my head). I think I also put so much pressure on myself to say something, that I either completely freeze up or just end up saying nonsense. Does anyone else feel this way with a group of people?

People don’t work as hard as I do, it infuriates me to no end. I perceive they talk about me negatively. I feel like I try to do everything to gain coworkers respect.

Today at work I was incredibly stunned by a coworker of mine, how awfully they spoke about another coworker behind their back. I did as well something today that I never imagined I would do, I actually told her to stop and that she was being extremely rude. She stopped and I felt amazing. Bullying hurts, and I won't and I can't tolerate any form of bullying. It has to stop.

Cannot stand laziness, & I’m seeing a lot of it at my one job. So when my shift is done and I know I’ve done more than my fair share of work/chores, I feel no guilt in leaving without saying a word or loitering around till someone tells me I can leave. My time is of value to me and I’m not going to spend any extra of it on jobs that should have gotten done in the time I was scheduled to work. Especially when I’ve already put in a full days work at my other job, & still have stuff to do at home!

To all the people applying for a new job these days: you are amazing. We are so focused on the struggle of finding a new place that we sometimes forget how exceptional we are. We are searching for a job we like, a job that we are passionate and enthusiast about. We just can’t wait to play our part in the world. Most people are not like this. They do not recognise how amazing working with passion is and they are the same people making it difficult for us to stay where we are. We are so strong!

I love my job and I love what I do, but I hate how toxic the environment is

People drive me crazy sometimes. I wish it was acceptable to tell customers what you REALLY think.

Why do we kill our selves at work to live? My husband and I worked 100 hours each last paycheck. The pay was great, but we sacrificed seeing each other and our son. What’s the point in that?

I have had very bad panic attacks at work for the past three weeks. Today I had one so bad that I ended up having to leave work. About 2 weeks ago I finally told my boss about it cause it is affecting me at work. Today my boss told me that when I come back next week that they want to talk with about a plan moving forward. I have lost a lot of jobs due to my anxiety and in my past jobs I never came out and told my bosses about the anxiety due to the fact that I thought they wouldn’t understand me

On my day off my boss asked me to call them to catch me up on a few things. I can't. I don't want to. I'm not on the clock. I'm out with friends. I wasn't expecting a text so I didn't bring my breakthrough meds. I want to tell her off but... My boundaries are important. I'm afraid to tell her I can't call her back. My anger is because she is pushing on my boundaries I set for myself. To be a good manager I need to have set boundaries. And that means leaving work at work and not bringing it home.

Feel complete isolated at work, I work 60+ hours a week with no extra pay, due to short staffing. my colleges tell me at work I shouldn’t be doing all at, but yet no actually helps where they could.

I have an interview for a part time job in Japanese and I don’t think my language skill is good enough. I’m afraid I will embarass myself and waste the opportunity.

I’ve been working in the customer service/call center environment for a little over 4 years now & im getting burnt out at this point. I’m tired of living check to check & not knowing what I want to do next with my life. I feel stuck with no clue of where to go from here.

Stay humble in every success you get, dont let others ruin your mood just because they are jealous of you.

Unfortunately everyone at work is so concerned about them selves , they seem concerned about your wellbeing but then go tell everyone your business and it so unacceptable

Why is work so hard? If star fleet were an option, I'd have a different job.

I’m substitute teaching at I school I really hate tomorrow. I want to go in with a positive attitude but so far the kids at this school are so argumentative and hard to deal with. I’m not really sure why I thought teaching was a good career idea to begin with. I’m really struggling with classroom management and discipline.

I am overqualified and underpaid for the education and experience that I bring to the job. Promotions and transfers go to the young and the followers.

I received an emotionally charged complaint against me. As such, my boss did not allow me to “defend” myself nor was she supportive towards me. In response, she hired the old person who did my job to be my “consultant.” I feel belittled. I’m not sure why I am going through this and it’s frustrating.
