Stress at Work

13 days until my interview for my dream job. I want this so bad. It’ll change my whole life. I have wanted this for months now, I have prayed endlessly for this. I spend everyday anxious, scared and worried. I think of it every hour of every day. I need and want this. It’s an amazing opportunity. I truly have passion for this job but I’ve never ever had luck during interviews. It’s sad because out of all the candidates I want this for more than money, I want to build a career. I am drained.

So I totally bombed an interview today, by interviewer was so nice throughout the entire process (its a problem-solving, test-based interview). I’m thankful for kind people who don’t look down on me for being unskilled. I can still improve.

Yesterday I had an anxiety attack at work. Today I get the silent treatment from everyone. I don’t know what to say or do anymore...

I just want to say “great job!” to everyone who is at work/went to work today. Good luck and I hope your day and the rest of the week go fine :) .

I'm an outsider at work. I'm the only one who's single without kids and is not in their 30s at least. This means I get left out of conversations and sometimes a few look down at me even though I've been there longer than them. Today I was alone at my desk eating lunch and two coworkers passed by me as they went out to lunch together. I could hear them laugh and talk about me as they left. I already feel lonely here because I don't fit in, but that made the feeling worse..

I used to look up to my boss. A female attorney running a successful business. We had an issue I brought to her attention and she told me I was "being too sensitive and it is clear you are unhappy here". Then the issue happened again, and again. The issue repeating itself has proven that I was correct, yet she doesn't acknowledge it. I have gone over the situation countless times. I know I was right. I have lost respect for her and that hurts more than not being taken seriously.

I'm torn between quitting and just saying :/

I'm a graphic designer I do what some people call a cool job...I make visuals for digital marketing and it's fun and creative from time to time, but my attitude made my job a source of stress among other sources...

I haven't worked in 5 years due to my anxiety and depression so my boyfriend's been the only one supporting us. Yesterday he got fired from his favorite job. He was so sad and upset and I didn't know what to do. We're going to try and find some jobs in a bigger City this week so hopefully all goes well. There's no time for anxiety right now I guess.

I find most Sunday’s are ruined by the dread of thinking of going to work on Monday. Have to find a better way to live in the moment (especially on Sundays) so I don’t ruin one of my two days off.

I like my new job a lot, but these past two weeks I've been crying at work and feeling so stressed. I feel like I'm doing everything wrong and that I just no longer want human interaction. I even dread coming to work now. As if I just want to stay in a hole all day

So I thought I was going to be rejected from my phone interview, since I did horribly, but I got an email inviting me to an onsite. I responded to the recruiter asking if they made a mistake. Heh. Maybe I shouldn’t have done that?

Today I lost my temper at work. I completely forgot all my mediation practices and lost it. I yelled at my bosses for not doing their jobs properly, I scolded my coworkers for playing on their phones instead of working, and I yelled at guests for being obnoxious. Looking back, I should have approached the situation differently but sometimes it’s hard. I went back and apologized to everyone. However, I meant what I said...

I really love my job ❤️

My company is restructuring and I got transferred under someone I don't like. What makes my anxiety worse is that my role isn't established. Everyone tells me a different story. So, I wrote the president to try to get clarity. (Asked hr, director, and operation manager, each told me something else) so now I don't know what's going to happen.

Burned out from taking care of clients. Rules for billing in my field constantly change and there is too much paperwork. I wish I could switch careers right now . There are moments I am still satisfied with this work but....

I’m introverted and not good at small talk, and I feel like that makes me a disappointment to everyone that I work with, like maybe I’m unworthy of my position in the office.

I'm unemployed. I'm having burn out so I shouldn't work a while at all. Still I want to. But I'm super stuck because I don't want to work as what I learned. I don't know what to do at all. I would love to be successful with my art but I don't seem to be good enough.

Does anyone work in HR/recruiting? I have an interview soon for my dream job and I would love tips or ways to enhance my prospects. I have had anxiety so I don’t want this to show, I want to be able to come off confident even if I have to fake it.

My boss finds every way to be negative towards the whole staff

I'm starting a new job after 6 years in my old one. I am TERRIFIED. I know I can do it but don't want to regret leaving something I loved and was great at.
