Happy to be employed and receive a paycheck, but whoa, sometimes you got to wonder if the stress is work it. It’s hard not to take things personal. Looking forward to the weekend!

How is everyone okay with this? I want to die every time I'm at work

Going to a job interview tomorrow... deep down I don't want to get hired... Not having the energy to stress about work and have to deal with coworkers and problems... Sometimes it feels like this life is so hard and you have to be always on your own, you can't really depend on anybody...

Applied to three jobs today, all of which are ambitiously to where I would usually limit myself. Hoping for the best but it is nerve wracking to put myself out there like that.

I've always been bad at socializing. I don't really like people. A great deal of my stress comes from having to work with other people. I can't handle criticism and I am so tired.

I have an interview tomorrow, but if I get the job I have to cut the dyed purple tips out of my hair, which is a big factor in feeling good about myself.....

It’s not right for someone to assume you didn’t pay for your undergrad and then to insinuate that your parents are mad at you for not using the degree.

Another uncomfortable day at work. Can another company hire me already? I’ve interviewed with several places so far, got some rejections, but I am getting restless. Can’t wait for the day when I hand in my 2 week notice,

Scared of going to work. The dread seems to control my day. All can think is: "got to go to work in "x" time. Did I forget anything? I'm late! Wait, it not for a bit. It will be awful, I am so tired. This is just like my last horrible job." And then repeat all day long. Ugh! Why such obsessive thoughts? 😣

I do not like my new job! 😭 I did not get the job I accepted, and cannot stand it. Thank God I have an interview for a job I really want in a few days- I need to get that job! But, even if I do, i am scared of quitting/2 week noticing the job I have right now. I want to just stop going, lots of people do that in the first couple of weeks. But u can't, so I have to do the notice, but don't want to work another second there and it could make me less hirable for the wanted job. UGH! 😵

I’ve just been laid off my new job, 1 Day before my birthday, I’m so upset and disappointed, I didn’t even do anything wrong and they said that themselves! It was the whole this job isn’t for you rubbish..... I’m so upset and frustrated as I have rent and bills to pay! And right before my birthday aswell, it’s kind of put a negative impact on me 🙁

Today was one of those days where I hated my job, I have no patience anymore to deal with difficult people.

I have to work a lot of evening shifts. More than the other people I work with do. I prefer morning/day shifts and have made this known, yet they still put me on the shifts I absolutely hate all the time. I know it's a job and at least I have one, but I feel so disrespected a lot of the time. Even when I bring things to my boss's attention I still never see any changes. I know I can't be the only one who feels this way.

I'm terrified to start my new job. I can't stop worrying and overthinking. I can't relax.

I work my ass off. Do a good job and there’s people who are jealous of that and spread rumours and try and make out I’m not doing a good job. This really affects me

yesterday was my first day at a new job that’s VERY understaffed (it’s a popular summer job, so now everyone is back at school). but unlucky for me, my FIRST 5 SHIFTS are all doubles! i have to work from 9:30am-10pm thursday-monday. i came home crying yesterday because of how stressed i already am.

I'm grateful for my new job but I didn't anticipate how stressful it would be. My employer has a really short training program, and even though I did well in the training, I still feel like I'm in way over my head

I feel no satisfaction in my government job. It is mostly inspecting contractors building roads, bridges, etc... I have an engineering degree, but am not sure if I truly am fit for that job or if I’m just in the wrong position. Either way I feel trapped due to my retirement and health insurance.

My job is stressful but thats not what causes me stress at my job. My job is very clicky and Im an introvert so i dont fit into a click which is fine with me but i feel like an outsider which causes alot of stress. Im trying to he more social but when you know things you want and you dont get it, its all about the clicks and i dont want to say something because i know i will unload. There are alot of back stabbers and gossips and i have no tolerance to be associated with those types of people.

I recently relocated to a southern state being a northern girl; I hate it! I work for the state, let’s say “Southern Bell and Charm” is a cliche. The women are b’witches add cliques on top of the lack of professionalism my anxiety is off the charts. I don’t know a single person in this state except for the women I work with of whom are ONLY acquaintances. I’m grateful for the church I have found, yet still a challenge overall. I’m thankful for Willow my dog she’s all I have, besides my faith.
