I work a shitty job that doesn't pay me enough. I hate it so much... But it's the only thing I can do at the moment. Just feel like I'm going no where ... I don't think I'll never know what I want from life.

I recently had to take a temporary (possibly permanent) leave from my current employer. I am realizing that it was not a healthy place for me, and I don't need to worry about not being there. I did what I could while I could, and now it's time to move on and find something that suits my needs while encouraging me to flourish and be happy.

I feel like I have been screwing up constantly. I'm terrified of getting fired. I got in trouble today for forgetting to take my lunch. I completely lost it internally when I realized my mistake.

I'm so unhappy with my job and have been since I started but I decided to stick it out. 7 and half months later I hate it even more. Thinking about telling my boss...I work with babies it's not fair to them that they are around someone who hates their job so much

Within 2 weeks I watched my 3 of my friends and mentors give notice and a layoff of 10% of my company that included 3 of the people I've mentored and become close with. I was in shock for a while but now the grief and loss are hitting me. I can barely get out of bed in the morning and have been making up some pretty stupid excuses to avoid work..hard to find motivation when I've lost trust in a company I used to love.

I have a job interview for today. I feel so nervous. I want the job but at the same time I don't. I don't feel that I'm capable of doing well if I was hired.

I work in the customer service travel industry and sometimes I want to lose it. I give everything I can for my customers giving the best prices, work on my days off etc. And yet they still go and buy what I'm selling online. It's like the work I do isn't worth anything. Why can't people appreciate a human doing work for them, bending over backwards for them. Drives me nuts.

I have a hard time saying no when people ask me to help them do something or get something done at work, I'll just keep letting them pile stuff onto my plate. Usually I somehow manage to get things done but I've got too much now and I don't know how to finish what I've started without piling more stuff on in the process. I want to help everyone with everything, I really do, but they must realize I can't keep doing this. I'm only one person.

I feel like all I am is this huge liability— breaking things, wasting everyone's time, manipulating and pulling strings to get where I want to be. I don't mean to; I just need to be stationed there to have space to breathe and calm down. I just need to vent and cry so I can be more productive and focused on my work rather than my emotions. Please forgive me; I'm doing my best.

After 5 years in college, 2 years of internship, 2 months since I quit on my job, 1 month to prepare for board exam, I still don't know if I really truly want this career. What should I do?

I work at a Kroger Starbucks, no one considers us a real Starbucks. The Kroger managers treat us like their red headed stepchild. We're low staffed overworked and stressed beyond beleif. I want to quit so bad but I already know I need to keep this job at least for a while longer.

I have a pretty good job and I make pretty good money but it's not my dream job and it's only part time. I can't afford to live off part time. Been applying for my dream job over and over lately. Got an interview recently and didn't get the job. Devastated. Just feel like I keep thinking getting pushed down every time I pick myself up.

Anybody know of any at home jobs? My anxiety is killing me and I want to work from home.

I'm currently working my first job. I've been able to deal with my anxiety in the past but with this, nothing that worked in the past works now. It has gotten to the point where it's been following me to school and with me being in the tail end of grade 12, I really can't afford that. I'd really appreciate if anyone would give me some tips on how you deal.

I work two different jobs at a theme park and one of them I really enjoy while the other gives me a lot of anxiety, I talked to my managers about only working the one I enjoy but their response was that we all have to do things we don't like sometimes. I feel so hopeless and it makes me feel like I am complaining too much. My job is to make people happy and I can't do that if my job is worsening my depression.

I'm quitting my job today after work. It's through email since my boss is sick and I'm so nervous. She's proved to be irrational so I'm scared for tomorrow and what she will say. She just asked if I could stay over my contract but she has no idea I'm responding with my resignation.
