I feel very overwhelmed at my current job. None of my coworkers seem to like me, and I cannot safely complain to my best friend or mother about it. I take co-workers and bosses criticism very very personally and it causes a spiral of depression. Not sure what to do; but it’s apparently destroying everyone’s around me.

Need to stop over thinking about work and about who likes me and who doesn't and do my job without people winding me up

I’ve noticed that my coworkers always complain in the break room. Just seems like a super negative space where everyone just talks down the company. Started taking my lunch outside. So far so good out here :)

I almost had a panic attack in front of my new boss last week. I had to excuse myself to go to the bathroom, and I did some breathing exercises.

I’m starting my first job in my field of study next week. I’ll be a mental health counselor and I’m simultaneously so proud and so terrified. What if I say the wrong thing to a client? What if I’m stuck for words all together? What if I can’t help anyone? What if I get fired for being incompetent? I just want to do well..

I'm not working right now (I'm on Disability), but I'm doing a fair bit of volunteering, as well as being basically the "homemaker" for my partner, myself and our two cats. I never thought just cooking, doing dishes, grocery shopping, laundry, cleaning and all of the other home things that my mom did was anything much; I thought she had it easy, "sitting around" all day. Now I know different! My hat goes off to any homemakers out there - especially those with kids as well as pets! 👍😀

It’s frustrating when one of my coworkers doesn’t like when I speak my own mind or do things my own way. I feel I don’t always fit in here.

On the face of it I have a great job in a wonderful institution. The reality is different. It’s a toxic atmosphere, where successive restructures have made people defensive and bitter. I’m managing what used to be split between 5 teams and being paid less than any of those managers were. I was an idiot to take this job. I’m completely overloaded and nobody is bothering to take steps to help monitor/reduce my workload even after me flagging up the issues. I’m running out of options beyond leaving

Today is finally my last day at my current position. I'm super excited Bc I'm gonna start turning around all the damage that this job put me through. Apparently my pain that I endured here was silent... I hope to God that who ever takes my place would put them all in their place 😒 Also, they're not talking to me today either Bc they might be mad that I'm not going to my goodbye dinner but I have feelings towards that

I cannot stand my coworkers. They dismiss my ideas, roll their eyes when I say something, and they are generally rude. I will be leaving this job in a month, so I am pretty excited.

I have a very important certification exam coming up on Monday. I’ve been studying like crazy but I’m still stressed out because my job is on the line. Well, wish me luck.

I feel like a fraud at work and have trouble figuring out why they still keep me. I am trying to be as positive as possible but have always struggled with self acceptance so I’m fighting an uphill battle.

I got severely sunburnt, verging on sun poisoning, from a weekend trip to the lake and asked a coworker if she could work today for me so I could recover; and she read my text message and ignored me. So here I am almost blistered, working 12 hours in a nursing home.

Ive been at the same place for 2 years now. Today my manger put me in a new position. I took over someone else's position. Every one now is making me feel bad and being rude to me. But this isn't my fault that my manager did this. Going to be a long day.

Work in an industry where feedback about performance is nonexistent. I am the type of person who tends to thrive and be motivated by encouragement, constructive criticism and any type of feedback. This has made me feel like I have stalled out in terms of professional growth. Any helpful thoughts on how I can make myself more accountable or ways I can grow?

I like my job but am finding it frustrating to hold the hand of a younger worker. It causes extra stress to monitor him so that he doesn’t make mistakes and he has worked there for a while now. I am a team mate. Not a babysitter

I am so tired of being the only person who wants to help others succeed. Nobody else wants to see success and it’s depressing because so many soldiers deserve promotions and awards and there are too many NCOs out there that don’t want.

Rubbish day at the office; it’s good that I’m not letting it affect my evening. That’s a first.
