Stress at Work

I just want someone to tell me they’re proud of me

I feel like I’m failing at my job due to expectations constantly changing. I’ve never experienced failure and my self-worth is bottomed out.

Pretend to be happy when you're sad and angry. Pretend to be fine when you have anxiety and depression. I feel like i barely breathing here. My heart is in pain. I was crying in the toilet. But, I pretend to be fine after that and putting a mask on my face pretending to be fine.

The minute I am on my way to work I become drained even if I slept all night. Then I go through extreme anxiety. I feel miserable. I avoid certain people and my job requires travel . The anxiety gets so bad I jump in cabs instead of the train and it is killing my pocket.

How do people deal with working 40 hours a week? It feels like so much, so draining and I don’t know why we agree to it as a society. How do you cope?

I feel like I'm dying inside. I feel insecure of myself. My anxiety is killing me. Why they have a happy life. Why am I the weird one? I'm struggling alone here with my life.

I hate my job, the main reason I’m so unhappy. It makes me an angry person. I’ve been trying to get a new job but no one gets back to me. I could be trying harder to get a job but then I get home from my current job I’m so exhausted that I don’t feel like it. I feel stuck.

it's warming how coworkers are trying to joke around me to ease the stiffness in me, especially today

After a year of struggling to get a job, I finally got one! I am grateful, but also know that the road ahead is not gonna be a walk in the park. I have to complete an intense couple of weeks of training. I have a new employee orientation this week and I'm just hoping everything will be ok, that I'll get the hang of it, and that my co-workers will be ok with me not being cheery all the time. I'm an introvert with low energy.

Que no valoren tu trabajo es frustrante.

One of our laziest coworkers is basically getting rewarded for her laziness by having to do nothing but the 2 easiest jobs and getting the earlier shifts. It’s bothers me that I’m second in command and have so much work myself but not given the time. My supervisor is one of my best friends and I’m afraid I’d upset her bring it up.

I’m a preschool teacher and started my new job last week. I have 3 years of experience but being a new teacher is very difficult especially in April. These kids are fighting and testing me during nap time. And I feel like a failure for having people come and help me. I don’t know what to do. I’m trying my best. But these kids are being very difficult

So I returned to work today after being signed off for a week off due to stress. My coworkers seem distant with me but my wife thinks I amight being paranoid. I wonder if I should ask them if everything is OK? ?

How can I handle working with a manager that is micromanagement? I'm trying so hard not to lose patience

I couldn’t take the nonsense and the toxic atmosphere at my job so I just left during my shift and I don’t know wether I’m ready to start another job right away.

I work as an assistant and it feels like my boss is annoyed with me today. I haven't worked here long enough for me to open up about that stuff so it's been awkward all day. 😅

I started a new job which I love and doing well in! But last week I had a fit and I have completely lost my confidence! After a seizure my mind is blank and I can’t remember anything! I feel a failure and they don’t understand! I’m trying to get back to normal and get back on track but feel like I’m a nuisance and I’m frustrated even though having epilepsy isn’t my fault! Work know I have it but they don’t seem to understand my condition (my memory wont come back overnight) it will take tim

My job of my supervisors treats me in discrimination thinking that I can’t lift of carry things just because I’m a female and they give it to a male employee. I feel like a nobody and not heard out. My supervisors send me home early cuz they don’t treat me fairly and are jealous of me. The scheduled hours I’m supposed to have aren’t given to me. Looking for another job that is honest and stays treating me fairly than looking at me like I’m a kid or stupid.

Why do i feel like the worst person for asking for a day off and it being accepted. But having to.face co workers after the day off. My whole day off has been spent worrying what they'll say to me tomorrow. 🤦‍♀️

I don’t know what to do. I love my job but ever since I passed out there, I always get anxious and lightheaded. No matter if I do deep breathing or what.
