Stress at Work

Everyone makes mistakes at work, but it is hard for me to accept it when it is me who makes it, so stressful... Self-confidence problem

I just entered the office, but I already want to go home. I’m so unhappy here.

Everyone keeps telling me I need to be more positive, and I know that's true. I lack confidence and self-esteem so I know I'm not the most positive person, but how am I supposed to do that when all I keep hearing is how rubbish I am? I already have negative thoughts about myself all the time, that I'm useless, that nothing I ever do is good enough etc, without other people confirming it for me.

So today I had a mild anxiety attack. Overthinking, assuming nobody wants to talk to me, etc... I have a hard time accepting that I am a very quiet person. I want to talk and be part of the conversation but I sometimes screw up or over think things and then it doesn't come out natural, very frustrating....

I’ve finally decided to quit one of my part time jobs in order to focus on myself and overcoming my own anxiety and depression. It’s a hard thing to do, and I’ll be so nervous when I bring it up to my boss- but it’s time to start the road to healing. Just gotta take that first step

I don't fit in well with my team at work and it's starting to really stress me and worry me about going in each day.

I graduated from graduate school a few months ago and I still cant find a job in my field. It makes me feel like a failure. And it has made my anxiety worse and it is starting to put a toll on my relationships and health.

I started a new job three weeks ago and am having a hard time adjusting because it’s far from my dream job.

I have a horrible time going into work, especially 8.5 hr shifts. I have had a bad spike in anxiety and fatigue, and I am kind of losing it before a big work shift. But I am just scared and tired. I do not want to go. I wish I was someone who never had to worry about: when I am going to eat next or who gets to eat. Every since I can remember, money has been a huge stressor and tight. Now, no matter how hard I work I can never get ahead. I am so tired- I just want to sleep!

Trying to get a job it’s a pain and what I thought I would love doing as a career has actually brought me a lot of pain but starting fresh is hard and expensive so now I’m trying to figure out what that is and how to get there it feels like I’m stuck in a crazy reality

I just had my job interview. Not only did I do poorly, but I also didn’t like the company/office/vibe well the people. Now I’m feeling regret for declining a job offer at a different company that I liked a lot, just because I wanted more compensation. Sometimes, less $ is okay if the environment is good :( .

Any tips for not thinking about work when I get home? Sunday nights are the worst for me because I spend the night stressing about the work week. I like my job but I am new at it so I am still learning and trying not to make mistakes on the job.

I recently quit my waitress job of 2 years to find something that was better paying. It was such a change for me going into a whole new job field, but it is going well and I am proud of myself!

My team mate got passed over and I was promoted when I don't even want the job. Now I'm hated by everyone and I can't decline because it's career suicide, and I can't convince my team mate to not resign. I'm losing my mind! :'(

How do you forgive yourself for making a big mistake?

I started a new teaching job after being fired from my last one due to declining enrollment. Being fired had nothing to do with my ability as a teacher, but I think I’ve internalized it as a failure, because now I feel completely inadequate at my new job. I keep thinking, “I’m doing a disservice to my students. I can’t believe they hired me in the first place.” And the anxiety is keeping me awake at night. I love my job. But I’m not confident at all in my work.

Stumbled upon a great job opportunity the other day. I dont have much experience in this field but it is not a requirement and I know I would be great for the job. I can't help the doubt and anxiety. The thought of an interview and the whole process makes me want to curl up in a ball. I cant believe I would even consider ignoring this opportunity to stay at my shitty dead end min3wage job. I'm so nervous and telling myself It could never work out. Helppp

It’s not so much being at work that’s the worst part for me, it’s the actually getting out of bed and starting my day that’s incredibly hard for me. 😞

I feel depressed and worthless on a daily basis, even though I try my best every day. I feel great self hatred and just started using this app to help cope with this persistent issue. I also don't take imperfection well .it makes new panic.
