Does anyone feel like they haven't found their purpose when it comes to your career? I feel like I was destined for greater but I haven't achieved while other people my age have jobs they love and make them feel like they don't actually work. I feel like I'm never going to be good enough or achieve anything significant since I don't have a job that makes me feel that way. I'm scared I'm going to be stuck at dead end jobs that are never good enough in mine or others eyes.

I don't know why but I hate going to work. The people are nice, the work is really easy and it isn't hard. But before i go I just want to cry and quit. I don't know why. Need some tips

After four months of desolation and self-doubts, I finally went out to find job and managed to get an interview this coming Friday. I hope for the best.

I changed careers after my last job left me feeling extremely stressed and anxious, to the point where I would cry on Sunday nights and sometimes before work, dreading coming in. I wasn't sleeping and I was miserable. Now, my new job is much less stressful, but I'm not passionate about it at all and I'm worried my skills as a writer are basically going to waste. I'm bored and I'm worried this career will go no where.

I'm so tired of work. People are so disrespectful. And if you aren't the perfect, cute little girl, you aren't socially accepted. I never feel like I fit in. I loathe retail so much!!!!!!!

When your manager tells you off for doing something that he/she does all the time! One rule for one... Do as I say, not as I do... And all that malarkey!

It's so stressful that when I come back to Wrk from my day off Wrk that should be done is not done. I have more wrk to do the next day and it's always a new rule because im doing so fucking great ppl just want to bring me down. It's hard adjusting to all this change. There is only one other person that wrks with me and if I'm succeeding u know they going to bring u down.

My workplace are making me attend formal review meetings because I have had 7 episodes of sickness in 9 months. I had informed them at interview that I had depression and severe anxiety but this doesn't seem to make a difference. I'm scared a lot of the time and the meetings make me feel guilty for having time off and silly like I should be able to make myself better. It's like people are looking at you thinking "it's just being sad, just get up and go to work" but they don't understand.

I'm a new doctor. It is exhausting and terrifying. The hospital it systems are archaic, referral systems are horribly complex, and there are so many ways it can all go wrong

After missing a month of work because of my burn out I feel powerless and useless back at work, I have nothing to do, a new colleague I didn't know about, and I'm stressed out because I just can't get to work! I am so not motivated and so panicked I am just sitting here, not able to do anything.

I was very anxious about not fitting in at work. Everyone was so outspoken and were making jokes with eachother, I felt out of my place. I just kept at it, keep showing interest and asking questions. Now I can say I made some bonds and feel a lot more comfortable. I just keep moving forward in this pace and everything will be alright.

Everytime I hit 3 or 4 months at a job it becomes too much. I get stressed & I want to quit. I probably quit 3 to 4 jobs a year this isnt okay.

If you don't like your job how do you decide if you are going to stick it out or find something new?

I hate my job. Tomorrow is Monday and I have to go back. Thinking about going brings me to a dark state of depression and I can't focuse. I've looked for work every where, but have had no luck. My co workers hate it there. The doctor I work for is constantly talking to me like I'm a child and at the end of the day I feel like I got beat up. I used to be excited about taking care of patients, now I hate them. My job has sucked out any empathy or compassion I had left for the patients.

Work is really hard when you can't focus and are this👌🏾 close to having a panic attack.

I'm not working already,but I'm 100% sure that school is harder.BC when you go on work you know that when you come home that you have nothing to do (if u don't want to) but when you in school,you need to study all the time,and that sucks.

I generally like my job. I like it when I'm there but I put tons of effort in and it goes unnoticed. I'm part time and I really want full time or more hours. There is a full time girl there that doesn't put have the effort in that I do. I just find it unfair. I want my work to be noticed and appreciated for it.

I'm proud of myself because i survived almost 2 months working even it was really stressful. 3 more days and my contract will end but i still want to continue working there, permanently. Just that i'm always having this fear every morning, WHAT IF i couldn't wake up, panic at work, make too many mistakes and all? Eventhough i survived 2 months, i'm still scared, having a strong feeling i would screw this up again anytime soon. Morning anxiety always gets to me...ugh hate living like this!!

I have been off work on stress leave for for over 4 months and now I'm back - but now part-time. I hate my job and find it very stressful. I feel trapped and don't know what to do! I want to quit but I don't know what I'm doing with my life. :(

I have a really bad absence rate at work, everytime I think I can start a fresh something happens and I wreck it. I have anxiety that cripples me and a spiral to depression. It's counter intuitive and it might cost me the job I love.

I keep making small mistakes in the section I'm based at the moment. I think I've done it correctly till someone points out a mistake and the second someone points it out I get so stressed and worried and angry with myself for not doing it perfect

I've suffered quite severely with panic attacks and depression over the past 12 months so much so that I've had 12 weeks off work and currently going through CBT therapy...I'm now at risk of loosing my job and with a mortgage and family to support this is unbearable to think about...I need a plan in case the worse happens...if only work could say "hey take the time you need and get better your job is safe" if only this was the case instead of "from a business perspective" 😔
