Made the decision to leave my current job today. It was the scariest thing I’ve done in a long time, but I was starting to feel like a secular version of the girl who dates the abusive narcissist bc “if she’s patient enough he will change and THEN everything will be peaches and cream”. ✌️

I got fired today. The company who bragged on me about being the best agent somehow had no fucking care that I had a mental breakdown at work on Friday and just let me go without any questions asked. I feel so much better to be relieved from that horrible job though . Now I have plenty of time to apply for jobs that I will enjoy. Even if I have to take a small pay cut at least I can use that for something other than repairing Myself after being at that Hellish job.

I used to see myself as a big executive. I have a supervision position at a big company. I am still young and very proud of my accomplishments. But now I deal with this huge anxiety and Wonder if I will be ready for more responsibilities and the sacrificies that this carreer requires... maybe this is not for me...

I’m gonna hand my notice in because the place I work doesn’t give a shit about mental health or my BPD

Struggling with work at the moment. Lacking in support and overwhelmed by a personal issue.

Today I’m really proud of myself! I had a super stressful Monday, staying late and planning to go in early tomorrow. But I took the time to feel the anxiety, took some deep breathes, took a coffee break when needed. I didn’t get overwhelmed or overly anxious but I also let myself feel and process my emotions.

Why do I have to do others people’s work just because they don’t do it correctly. Shouldn’t they have to redo it until it’s correct? I feel like I’m being punished.

Working at a restaurant is so frustrating. As a host, everyone complains to you about you - servers, managers, guests. I’m just trying to do my job and I can’t do it if everyone wants to be upset with how I do it. I know what I’m doing, everyone just can’t be pleased. I’ve been super stressed out lately, so no one at work is helping! Plus, too many people quit/called out, so I have to pick up their slack. I’m tired.

I’m dreading work today. I know I’m being taken advantage of because I’m a hard worker. However, I’m so exhausted that I want to look for another job. I’m slowly starting to open up about it and I’m afraid things will go wrong.

I’m overwhelmed as I’m overworked. I feel like my work has suffered as a result and I’m making mistakes and feel like a complete failure. My anxiety has gotten worse because of it. I wish I could handle stress better.

After I decided to resign from an job that was not conducive to my professional growth or mental health, I felt an immense amount of confidence and control over my anxiety. It's 3 days later, and that high has now turned into a low. I'm worried because I'm losing a month of pay and benefits. I've already found other work but I'm worried about the transition period. Money's been really tight and it's been kind of tense at home. I'm questioning my choice, but I know I had to leave. It's been rough

Work is beyond stressful. I just don’t even care anymore and I hate that it’s gotten to this point.

My job causes so much anxiety and stress for me going in everyday is becoming harder and harder. To make matters worse I messed up and I have to deal with that in the morning. I have a very difficult boss and I don’t even know what to expect and I’m very very worried. 🤦‍♀️

Got signed off for a week of stress leave today. So terrified about what it means long term. How will i go back with everyone talking about me? How can i face the liars who have bullied me until I can't breathe.

i have a really great job that my parents love for me but it causes me so much anxiety to go every time. I struggle to get up and get ready without having a panic attack and i don’t know how to tell my parents. i hate going to work just because i’m so scared of interacting with new people and what they will all think of me
