I have told myself that No one and I mean NO ONE is worth stressing myself to the level of illness over ! Now I have to remember this.

I feel an enormous amount of work stress. I'm trying to breathe it out and not letting the negative emotions get trapped.

I just quit my job and I feel like I'm on cloud 9. If you hate your career but you're scared...save a little bit of money and quit. I swear the feeling of euphoria you will feel will light a fire under your ass and you will find something better.

Today I will try to practice self-acceptance at work, and remember that I don't have to be the perfect employee 100% of the time in order to keep my job

Why do I constantly feel like I'm not doing enough at work? We had something come up while I was on vacation and I STILL felt guilty for not cutting vacay short.

When illness removes you from your job, you quickly realize the most important things in life have nothing to do with work.

Today there is so much shit to do. Just me and another coworker. Feeling stressed and overwhelmed. Just constantly fucking overwhelmed.

Today I am going to try not to ruminate about perceived mistakes or awkwardness in my interactions with others when I am at my job, and try to focus on the good that I do ❤️

Dealing with people who are twice as old as myself and completely immature and nasty to others is so frustrating. We don't have to like everyone but if you have nothing nice to say say nothing at all. Plus lets just be kind to one another. Treat other how you want to be treated.

I am starting a new job and was recently told that the boss can be a huge bitch. I'm scared now to start because I have a hard time forming my own opinion and I don't know how to just see for myself ..

Kids crying all day, and I'm on my period. What's better than that? Oh, my co-workers are being super lazy.

Just found out that I will be unemployed in a little more than 5 weeks. Trying to stave off a panic attack as my roommate chatters about how great her day was. Help!

I can't work with one of my managers. She embarrassed me in front of everyone and I cried. I felt so weak it's like she had no idea the way she talks to people comes off as condescending.

I feel frustrated, or tired, I can't even tell. I just want to go home and sleep and be in silence. Just that.

I basically got fired again. For my mental illness related issues. This is the 5th job I've lost in the last 8 months due to this illness.

I often feel like all I do is work. Often it and errands are the only time I leave the house. And now my boss wants to monitor my seeking of psych service like my father used to monitor my grades when I was a child. It is really bothering me an making my stress worse and not better.

Yesterday, I left a note at my shitty job saying that I quit. I know it's unprofessional but I can't stand another day there.

Feels like I'm stuck doing forced work and nothing that I dream of doing; to busy doing other jobs that I don't want to do and get forced when my dream is really hard to get too..😭

Sometimes I feel like I'm collapsing on the inside and I can't focus or function. I just want to stare at my computer screen and do nothing. Some days it's so hard to get anything done and I'm actually surprised I hide it so well and haven't gotten fired or written up.

I wish there were more reliable people around where I work. It is super annoying having to pick up the slack when people keep calling out.

i started a new job, and i was making small talk with a new female coworker and i was getting really awkward and anxious and felt like i said a lot of stupid things, I am feeling tremendous anxiety and can't sleep because of how i may have made myself look. i don't like spoiling first impressions and she probably thinks i'm a loser. the feeling is displacing itself in other areas of my life and making me incredibly doubtful.
