I fluctuate between thinking I am overqualified for my job and thinking that I am imposter who doesn't deserve a paycheck.

It feels like my colleagues have picked up on my insecurities. Any time I make the slightest mistake they are on me like a hawk on a titmouse, which makes me feel even worse. And I then can't ask for help because I am sick of the eye-rolls and 'oh [name] what are we going to do with you?' Thing is that the people I am there to actually look after love me (I am a carer) and ask for me to be the one to give them their personal care, etc. I know that I am good at my job. Why do I undermine myself?

Really hoping I can get through work today without having a complete breakdown, I got up early have had a lavender bath, lit an insence burner and have had a couple of calms. My new job in a call centre is hell on earth.

i'm working a double today. 10:30 AM to around 11 PM or midnight. It's going to be a long day, but I know I can do it. I actually like doubling because it doesn't give me any time to think about the stress in my life, only work stress. i've got a good feeling about today.

I am trying my best at work, checking all the details and rechecking. But i am still making mistakes. I am worried i have been promoted above my abilities. I got the job over someone i now manage and i know she doesnt respect me. The mistakes are exacerbating this problem. I bought a management book hoping this will give me advice. Feel like im flayling.

I just read an article about working no more than 4 hours per day. In those days I'm re-thinking about myself but also the life we are SUPPOSED to live.

This past week and a half I've been in a weird place, my mental health hasn't been bad persay, it's been really good actually! I just think I was really frazzled with school, work, and other appointments along with getting a nasty ear nose and throats infection. I kept making these tiny stupid mistakes at work and annoying my managers.... none of it was on purpose, I was trying to do my best work but I kept Messing up. I feel super guilty about it too😩 I know I shouldn't be but I can't help it

My supervisor is a strong personality and is the source of 99% of my anxiety.

I need to get a job at some point, but I'm honestly terrified. What if i mess up? What if i have a panic attack and break down in the middle of my shift? I don't even have a resume... 😬

I get left off of group emails at work sometimes because I'm quiet and apparently easily forgettable. Drives me nuts. I'm sorry that I'm not an outgoing person. :/

I don't work right now so I consider school my "work place". I just can seem to make new friends. I made one when I was 5 but now this year she made a new best friend and completely ignores me. I'm an alone weirdo

my job is a seemingly easy one..but for someone with severe & worsening ADD...im afraid they're going to let me go because i can't remember so many simple things. no one there gets what's it like to have rapid fire in your head all day with their heart racing out of their chest. no one understands that i'm trying as hard as i can...& im still not improving. "focus, relax", they say...my god IF ONLY it were that easy...

Amazing how much respect my manager treated me with this last week of my job. Today she agreed with me in a dispute I was having with one of her permanent employees. It could be that she no longer perceived me as a threat to her position, or that she realized how negative her behavior has been. I think I shifted the energy when I made the 4 agreements, especially the 2nd agreement, not to take things personally.

I'm a teacher (college) and I start school tomorrow. I'm pretty new at this and I get really nervous about teaching, especially at the beginning of the semester. Hoping tomorrow I find a great class of students and get off to a good start. Any other teachers out there who struggle with getting up in front of a group of people (even though that's the whole job)?

I've lost my job and the stress of going to interviews continuously and just the up and down of waiting to see if I'll get another job, plus to constant worry if the bills are going to get paid are slowly killing me. So many anxiety attacks.

I've been unemployed for over a year. I had to leave my last job because two toxic coworkers were bullying me. I haven't been able to get a new job since. I'm angry that I had to leave my last job, it was a small company with no HR and my supervisor worked for one of the bullies so I couldn't speak up. I get extremely anxious when I job search, I feel like I'm not good enough for any ads I find. Unemployment is high where I live but I can't even find a lowly cleaner job. I feel so hopeless.

I have had pressure through deadlines being constantly changed. Work I have been doing on a certain aspect within my role has not been appreciated. Rest of team are off loading their frustrations with management on to me. This all equals me completely flying off the handle during a meeting at work yesterday. I voluntarily took today off and I've applied for a job working with animals which I have done before and know it's the best thing for me. Fingers crossed I get an interview.

Anyone have any advice as to how to deal with extremely negative coworkers that are hindering your mental health? Help! They make my workday and progress miserable and impossible.

I just lost the best job I ever had 😭. My husband & I founded a building business & after 9 years of success (never advertised) with our building company & multiple employees, I had to make us all redundant. I feel so heart broken. I'm not able to hold a job due to trauma, PTSD & anxiety. This job was the only one where I could be me & succeed. The worst part is my Hubby has been diagnosed with uncontrolled epilepsy & cant work again until he is safe. Where do I talk about that situation?

I've just recently quit my job of four years, which I honestly believe was the right decision for me. I have a lot more free time now, which I feel like I should enjoy while I can, but I can't stop feeling disconnected or out of sorts about it. I had a routine for the last 4 years that is gone now. It just doesn't feel right? I hope I can find a new job soon.
