All of the stressing has finally done some good! Glad to say I got the job that’s I have been dreaming of getting forever!!

I just started looking for a job and I’m terrified. This will be my first job and I have no experience. I feel like I have no good qualities and I don’t know what to do. I’m also scared to search for a job because I have facial piercings and dyed hair. I get weird looks in the street (which doesn’t bother me, but a professional setting terrifies me). I don’t know where to start or how to feel comfortable accepting that I will be turned away from some places due to my style.

I’m beginning to think my job is extremely unhealthy for me now. I don’t want to be the center of things anymore

Today is the first time I've used a sick day for my mental health. I know that I'm mentally "sick" right now, but somehow it doesn't seem to warrant taking time off work.

went in feeling really nervous bc i don’t normally work this certain shift so i don’t know the people much at all but it turned out to be an alright day. i’m proud of myself for interacting well with people i’m not so comfortable around.

My job is wearing me down. Every single day makes me feel like I’m drowning. I can quit soon, but it’s hard to keep pushing. My coworkers are bullies, my boss is aggressive and lacks empathy. It’s so hard to breathe.

The job hunt rollercoaster is exhausting. Money dwindles and my mind races with nothing to accomplish. How do you bounce back from a rejected application? 😔

I think one of my major work stressors is that I’m not 100% happy at my job and I don’t really know what I’m meant to be doing in life. I’m a teacher right now and some days I like it but most I’m just trying to get through. I just keep thinking about how much time it took and all the loan debt I’m in, otherwise I’d probably pursue something else. Can anyone relate or give any advice??

After almost a month of being permanently laid off from what I was told was going to be a long-term positive career move, I finally started applying places today and am scared of the upcoming interview stress etc.

This is a follow to my recent post. Now that I feel less anxious I recognize that I want this job to work out, however, it is not the end all be all and will only work for me if I am not working off the clock all the time or bringing work home with me!

It’s a challenge balancing my own mental health while helping others with mental health crisises. Some days I worry if I’m being effective enough in this field of work

I feel like I'm reaching a dead end in my current job. The pay is good but it's no longer satisfying and I feel like I'm constantly struggling to find a work life balance. I've applied to at least 4-6 jobs now and haven't heard back from them at all. I mean, I wasn't necessarily expecting employers to trip over themselves trying to hire me... But I at least thought I'd be getting SOME response back. This makes me feel like I'm not good at my current job and should stay even if I'm unhappy.

Today I had a very hard offsite meeting, where the few leaders and I had to break apart the entire company and work to restructure it. My position was almost eliminated and my group merged within another, and I had to fight to keep it. It was a huge mental drain, scary in terms of almost losing my position, and I came home to zero support and empathy. Needed to get that off my chest and hope to find some motivation and energy to have a better day tomorrow.

I haven’t been able to focus at work in weeks. I feel so unmotivated, and I have no idea why.

I am a new graduate in my field and am feeling overwhelmed with my responsibilities. My boss informed me last week about what is expected of me at the end of my probationary period, which is still 7 weeks away. I feel pressured by this and am trying to muster the courage to ask for what I need right now which is to budget more time to complete my documentation. I may just need to adjust my expectations of myself and do it while I’m with other patients so I don’t burn out

I need to go to sleep so I can wake up in five hours to get ready for work. (Got off work a hour ago) this cycle seems to never stop..

My boss gave me 2 weeks to find another job today. She didn’t like the work I was doing and I had no idea. She wasn’t clear about her expectations, I don’t think it was really fair.

Undergraduate professional practice is the worst for me. Having to do research with not enough time, no one to help you and being evaluated as a person and if you "are good for the job" when you're close to getting your degree after many years.

I went the best schools in my country. I have so many achievements but i have no work experiences. So I really experiencing difficulties in finding a job. All of my friends start to work but not me. I know its not just my time but it still make me feel sick.
