I turned notifications about work emails off on my phone. My heart no longer sinks when I hear that sound!

I learnt to say no at work today, because I couldn’t fit someone’s else’s unrelistic demands in to my already busy work day. the world didn’t crumble. 🎉

I'm getting really pissed that everyone can have an attitude and their tone of voice can be a rude as possible and they NEVER GET IN TROUBLE!

I never realized how I had allowed my life to become unbalanced until I retired. I’m working on getting my life back in balance.

I've been struggling for a while at this company. I've been shuffled around. I am on my third manager in two years, and I am not that happy. I have been praying to find a good fit.

I do my absolute best and do everything I am asked at work and get little to no recognition while everyone around me does the bare minimum and gets praise and promotions. I don’t understand.

I'm frustrated with a coworker for not respecting the boundaries of our job roles. Today they asked for help from me almost ten times with things I feel they could figure out on their own (things in their own job description and not mine). It made it difficult to concentrate on doing my own job and I felt guilty for getting irritated with them about it although I did my best to stay respectful and pleasant.

Really almost quit my job this week cause my boss is just ridiculous. It’s crazy the laziest people say you’re not doing your work or exceeding expectation. I asked the woman to do a part of her job and it’s like the end of the world. Now you’re mad. Ok we’ll maybe you should learn stuff

Working in service is so hard for a young adult! People are ALWAYS rude and mean right to your face, and the people you work for can be just as bad.

Having just me closing apparel is a bad idea- I can't get everything done in time and and when I finally do a customer messes it up. It's really frustrating- why can't they be more considerate? Don't leave a mess, it's inconsiderate. And put things back where you found them, not on top of racks, that's just rude.

Struggling today. I feel like any amount of standing my ground is rude. I get so anxious after sending a firm email and regretted it immediately. I had a colleague check it so I know it wasn’t awful or rude, but it still feels like it was. Anyone else struggle with this? Any tips?

I have what most people believe is a very fun/cool job. Except, it’s actually a toxic workplace. I dread waking up and going in. Besides depressed and anxious, It’s making me physically ill.

These people don't get it! It becomes more and more obviousto me that they don't have an interest in learning. They are only interested in making it through their shift and getting that pay check

My vent is mostly about money. Financial stress and anxiety has really been getting me down lately. In transitioning to a new job in a new city, but right now I only make enough for rent & that’s it. I get so stressed & worried about making ends meet it can eat away at all the progress I’ve made to stay healthy. I know money comes and goes, but being on your own it’s hard. I’m trying to focus on what’s to come.

I get to work and I feel ready for the day and then they ask me to do all these different things at once and I can’t take it. My mood goes downhill and I don’t want to do anything.

Emailing people makes me incredibly anxious, even if the email subject is minor and not a big deal. It takes me SO long to compose and send an email because I get caught up worrying about my tone, word choice, formatting, etc., and it’s a huge burden considering that most of my work requires lots of emailing.

Currently feeling anxious knowing I have to go to work tomorrow. I mean I’m thankful that I have a job but knowing that I have to stay around negativity for 10+ hours is torcher .

I feel really lost. I feel like I am not good enough, and that I will get sticker in the same place forever.

I wish the hiring process was easier. There's lots of jobs I know I could do, even excel at, but I'm not a super sociable/charismatic person so I don't do well in interviews. Plus the rejection from multiple applications doesn't help my anxiety or self-esteem. I know everyone gets rejected from jobs, but it's hard not to take it personally and feel like there's something wrong with me.

My boss is always saying I take what she says too personally. But in my perspective when she communicates with me it always offends me or puts me down. Idk how to handle this type of judgment or communication. She tells me to just do my job and she won’t be hard on me but everything I do upsets her. :(

My boss doesn’t believe in Anxiety as a “real” illness and therefore doesn’t acknowledge that it’s a serious condition and I’m suffering with the anxiety and doing my job.
