I’m so anxious at work right now. I just feel trapped. Like this office is closing in on me. I want to run away.

After two weeks of waiting, I found out I didn’t get the job. I don’t feel sad about it which is surprising, but I believe something better is in store for me.

Offered to work on a Monday to help a colleague - little did they or I know it would affect my whole weekend with anxiety. Next time I will be more assertive in saying no or at least taking proper breaks during the day to stay balanced.

I finally got a new job in my college town; i’m very excited to have someone else rely on me to take care of them.

I’m really hoping I get this job. I’ve just been waiting to hear back & I’m slowly losing hope the longer I wait at this point. I guess if it’s meant for me, it’ll be mine.

I started a new job a few weeks ago. I’m so focused on getting my co workers to like me. It’s all I can think about

I recently started a new job that is working with people and is extremely social. I am excited because it is helping the community (providing jobs for disabled), but I'm constantly doubting myself and obsessively worrying. I am constantly comparing myself to others and feeling insecure that I'm not "enough" but I know that when I force myself into a situation, even though it isn't what I ideally want, I still am able to react in a way that is positive and rewarding, but these thoughts absorb me.

I was so stressed out by my job, we’re overworked and underpaid so everyone in my station quit, I was working alone most nights, I got into an argument with my supervisor who’s lazy af and decided to walk out , I quit that place. I feel so much better, even tho it might had been a decision in the heat of the moment.

I’m freaking out because I’m so unhappy in my career that I cry every morning knowing I have to go to work. But I’m scared that if I quit I will regret it because the benefits and pay is good

The hardest thing about owning your own business is being consistent with your work and making your self do what's needs to be done even when you don't want to if it's for the team .

My feet hurt so bad. It has been a while since I have worked so long and so hard on my feet. I have horrid pain phobia and health anxiety, and any pain is a huge stressor, I hate taking pain meds for fear of their long term effects. I am so stressed from my feet hurting- I cannot sleep! 😭😭😭

I’m finally starting a new job in a couple of weeks. I am so excited but i feel a small bit of fear. I hope i like it and that I’m successful. I am motivating myself and working through my inner critic. I don’t want “her” to start getting me down about nothing

I had the opportunity to start a new job but I’m so afraid of change I chose to stay at a job that makes me horribly miserable. Anxiety sucks.

Hey everyone. I'm about to go to sea again for a couple of months. I haven't been in about 2 years. Last time I went I came back with depression and I hated that life. But i tell myself that the reason I go to sea is to provide for my family. That is my motivation for doing it. I wish I could be a stronger person. I wish I could be able to not let going away to sea hurt me. Maybe it's the isolation from family. Maybe it's the normality of life being taken away.

My job causes me a l o t , of anxiety. My job has restructured my mindset.I cope with it by trying not to think about it . Sometimes I wish I had a more respectable job, a lot of guilt comes from it but it affords this stressful life style I'm accustomed to yet there's always a social boundary I have to push just to maintain in my career field. But it's my fault.... That's why I'm on this app cause my nerves to bad at this point .

Stress at work but every time i think of changing a new job, i'm worried that I'm not qualified enough and kept looking at jobs below my current pay grade.

I am prone to getting very stressed with work as I run my own business. I decided to set more of a structure with my ‘working hours’ so that I HAD to switch off. I’ve been going to a yoga class which really helps me relax too.

Just did a phone interview for a new job. I’m worried about the next interview but also feeling extremely anxious about the possibility of leaving my current jobs for a new one and changing a big part of my life.

Im literally dreading going to work every morning as the new member of staff is always in my face no matter how many times i tell him to leave me alone, he can also be quite aggressive punching walls and swearing at everyone this has left me feeling emotiobally draines at work and just dreading going in

I’m starting a new job soon for a very prestigious company but I am so scared. This is my first fever job & I will be one of the youngest there. I’m so nervous and worried that people will look down on me because I’m so young and don’t have the experience that they do. I’m scared I will mess up and do badly.

Soooo fed up with one of my supervisors. Last Friday, they gave me a subtle insult about my work and it bugged me all weekend. Now, this morning they came to my office just to tell me that they had a dream about me being fired by someone. I don’t understand why someone would even say this. Some things should be kept to themselves. Highly disappointed and upset. I need to confront him tomorrow and let him know that this is not okay.
