How can I stop criticizing myself at work. How can I tell myself that it is alright to make mistakes.

Never feel good enough even though I work hard. Why am I seeking approval?

I need to stop volunteering to do work that's not mine. I have an easy job and I forget that it's not my responsibility to cover for the weak links in the office.

I got a job interview at my local super target and when I told my best friend about it (who works at another target) she said that I should probably take another job. That she hates target, that they are rude, that it's horrible and that she wouldn't even wish it upon her worst enemy. And so now I'm conflicted she makes it seem like a horror movie and idk what to do? Listen to her or give the job a shot and judge for myself?

Am I the only one who thinks like what am I still doing here?

Scared about my future and draining savings, work just cut my hours and I have high anxiety to change. I talk to them tomorrow and I know I'll probably need to find another job... This isn't good with the holidays coming :/

I found out bad news at the doctor and had to go straight to work after while being in a mixed state. I made a lot of mistakes and embarrassed myself. It was terrible.

Posted last night. I was anxious to go to work today. Today was worse than I possibly could have imagined. I feel so drained. But I do feel that I am improving. I am an ER RN and had to work what we call the "code" rooms. I am excited that I don't feel as lost as I once did but it is still hard. Difficult to stay present in the moment and focus on what I need to do. I tend to freeze and dissociate. kind of a rant. It just feels nice to be able to share these feelings

I feel like I'm always making mistakes at work and that every time someone fixes my mistakes that their disappointed in me and I feel if I keep doing it I will sooner or later get fired, moving forward my anxiety then makes my mind wonder on how I will live financially, as I live with my partner and have no family to fall back on, I need to stop thinking... thoughts on how to stress less at work and relaxation when getting through your workload?

Every Sunday night I get anxious about having to go to work the next morning. I despise my career and am in the process of transitioning to something new, but I still get that Sunday night sick feeling. Anyone else feel that way?

What will I be when I'm older, I'm 25 and I feel like I'm tredding water. I'm financially sound, but it's just a job.

I work in a psychatric hospital and being around people who are mentally ill for 12 hours a day just doesn't seem to agree with my anxiety

I always have a nagging feeling that I'm not enough and not valued at work. All my superiors see are mistakes, mistakes, mistakes. It's frustrating because my entire life is work, yet I don't seem to be going anywhere.

Got a job interview for Monday. I'm so so very nervous. First job interview and job I'd ever have. I'm scared I'm going to back out.

I'm getting pretty used to people treating me like dirt at work. My coworkers are awesome, but some of the others forget I'm human sometimes. I'm starting to get used to it sadly.

Trying to figure out how to balance a job I don't entirely hate with the human beings that make it rough. I think my job is making me more antisocial...too much gossip, too much judgement, too much manipulation. Its like being in high school again...something I never want to repeat!

Is it Friday yet?! Today was one of those days that I was annoyed by every thing...people talking around me, sound of the printer, etc. I struggle with ADHD in a cubical environment. Normally my medication helps me focus/drown out the noise but not today. I'm on the phone about 50% of time so unfortunately can't listen to music which would be ideal for me. Does anyone have advice on how to stay focused in that type of work environment?

The one thing that frustrates me about work as a female is the wage gap. I work so hard and I still earn less then my male coworkers. I sometimes feel like I will never be good enough.

Feeling very upset as I have recently been promoted to be a supervisor and I haven't received proper training yet they expect me to know everything. I have this one person who makes me feel so bad about myself every shift in with them. But their father is one of the managers.

I can't trust anyone, especially the people I work with. All problems I have or will ever have are hilarious because they cannot matter and are unimportant. I am pathetic and a waste.

I have such a hard time feeling I'm on the right path with work... I may need to take the plunge, and pursue more education. It is so difficult for me, personally to feel like I have a clear direction in this area of my life 😕 Grateful for you all, and thankful to have a place to share these thoughts❤️
