Stress at Work

I’m so stressed about my future. I feel like I’m drowning

It's difficult being in a workplace where mental health isn't really understood, it makes going to work and maintaining a positive outlook harder

I hate where I work. I like my coworkers and the job itself but where I work is so disorganized and understaffed and there’s no communication. I’m one of two people in my position and there should be four of us so it’s an overwhelming amount of work. I’m feeling the burnout where I’m beginning to get distracted and lose focus. I’m beginning to lose interest. And I’m exhausted by the end of the day where all I want to do is shut myself in my room for the rest of the night. But I don’t.

Does nobody realize how unnatural the 40 hr or more work week is? How it is ridiculous to expect people to continuously work even when they’re past the point of exhaustion? Maybe adulthood itself isn’t tiring, but we’ve been conditioned to think that because capitalism is.

I absolutely hate my current job but I’m not sure if it’s really the job or if it’s me. I think I’d hate any job. I need money to live but I’m so miserable.

My job is getting on my nerves. I find everything talking about each other behind their backs. Then they ask me if I want to hang out with them after work. I don't want to hang out with fake people :/

I hate rude customers. Doesn’t help my anxiety or panic attacks even when I’m not the one dealing with them, just need to be in the same vicinity

I'm out on disability leave until I get the anxiety/depression under control. Sometimes I go out with my family but I'm afraid to post something online because coworkers will think I'm faking it. Am I not allowed to have "good" days?

I finally got my dream job designing at an agency but I can’t seem to shake this imposter syndrome. I’m my worst critic. I know I’m good enough to be here obviously or else I wouldn’t be. I’ve worked very hard to get here. But sometimes I let my anxiety get the best of me and effect my work.

Tired of being a cashier. People here at the hotel are rude, snobby, self entitled bitches. They should work customer service then maybe they will realize how awful and bitchy they are over little things that no one gives a fck about

I let my idiot co-worker get the best of me. The most frustrating part is I know his tricks and fell for them anyway.

I don't think it's possible for me to find a job I won't hate. I end up in tears wherever I am. I can't get past the fact that everybody is being exploited and has way bigger dreams than what this world allows. I don't know how to escape from this.

I hate when a coworker with the same title as you try to tell you what to do with your job & you know your a good worker it’s just this coworker is picking on you because he thinks you won’t stand up for yourself but in reality your just trying to mentally calm down before you really explode on him... thank you for letting me vent... the “you” is “me” btw lol

I haven’t been working for a while since I got laid off. It’s starting to make me anxious watching my bank account dwindle down.

I am a teacher, and I feel that I am not good enough at my job. I care about my students and subject area a LOT, but I am concerned that I am not able to manage the student behaviors and stress of my job enough to teach well. I am about to embark on a new year, and I keep wondering how much easier it would be to change careers. I just need some guidance and peace of mind.

I am feeling anxious, I overthink my answers, I dont know if my answer to my supervisor was appropriate. I dont like to be overthinking.

The managers at my job is useless. We have too much managers ! VP , managers, assistant managers blah blah they do nothing for us employees honestly. Every time we asked for help they basically tell us to figure it out which is fucking dumb because it’s there fcking job to help us with problems. Like I can’t fcking fix this machine do I look like a fcking engineer to troubleshoot this shit. Just annoying this managers are lazy and no promptness w there performance.

In my job I have a lot of unstructured time but big demands. The cycle of goal setting, planning, losing motivation, falling short, and unraveling has been a huge part of my recent mental health challenges. I worry that I’ll never find a way out of this. It’s not that I don’t like to work. I just haven’t found a healthy way to do it.

Sitting in my car in my work parking lot, not wanting to go inside. My anxiety is hitting me hard this morning.

I’ve been working a lot of hours and as a result, I’ve been neglecting important parts of my self care like cooking healthy meals and exercising. It’s taken me a while to get back to work and I was feeling my anxiety spike a lot. I talked to my boss today and we agreed on a schedule that will fit with me fitting in self care. Just having the conversation made me feel so much better!

Its my first job but I work at McDonald's and sometimes customer's can be really mean to me and sometimes even hurt my feelings. I'm a minor and it's my first job I'm just trying to get by and do my very best during work.

I feel like people don't like me at work and misunderstand me. Makes me feel awkward around them.
