Sometimes I remind myself, on tough work days, you deserve a medal for simply not giving up.

I'm so scared to mess up.

I want to quit my job but can’t afford it. I hate that I’m being trapped in a job that drains me and that make me feel sick, stressed out and anxious.

I hate my job. I can’t quit because that will prove everyone who believed I couldn’t hold down a job right, but it’s making me miserable. It seems no one else is interested in hiring me though, and I have no idea what to do. I don’t want to be stuck in this position forever but it feels like I will.

I wish I could quit my job because I’m just so unhappy and miserable but I don’t because I have bills to pay causing me to feel more depress or just mad at the world

I'm really not looking forward to going back to work Tuesday:( The girls I work with are so lazy and they all talk shit behind every ones back and my boss is the kind where you are ALWAYS wrong and she is always right >.< God help me. I can't deal with bad work situations anymore. I just hate people anymore! I just want to work alone!

What do you do when you have no idea what you want to do?

Starting new job. Have loads of baggage from a previous job. So far so good, still dreading when things get rolling and the fatigue plus dread sets in. I have this thing where every second of every day is focused on how I have to go to work at "x". A sick countdown starts and my time off turns into my time worrying and dreading. Mmmeeeehhh.... 😑

I have to go back to work soon and I'm not ready. I hate working there but I need the money :(

I wish I could just quit and focus on interviewing, since I can’t focus at work knowing that I am planning to leave soon. If I quit before I get a job offer, it would be so awkward explaining to my boss and coworkers why I’m leaving. I can’t just say, “I hate it here.” And stating “personal reasons” might come off odd.

I’m trying so hard not to get discouraged, but job hunting is breaking me down. I wish that I already had a job so at least I’d have an income. It just feels like I’ll never be independent. I feel like I wasted so much money getting my degree. The frustration is just overwhelming & depressing. On top of that, my anxiety isn’t helping me feel adequate for any position.

I finally found a job that was such a great fit, that I had great connections for, the right skills and education for, and I knew (and have great professional relationships with) two of the three people on the hiring committee. But, as with everything I've applied to in the last year, no offer. How am I supposed to find something? I feel un-hireable.

My company lost the contract to 95% of our buildings so I currently don't have a job which means I'm currently not getting paid, I could have gotten into a new building but I told my supervisor to give new buildings to one of my other coworkers who is a single mother of three kids. I much rather struggle then put her through that, but it's so frustrating knowing I don't have a paycheck coming this week

I’ve been with the same company for 4 years doing the same job, but I recently transferred to a new office close to home. I’ve heard my new boss can be tough and has yelled at her employees before in the past. I’ve been sick to my stomach asnd anxious every day the last two months worrying that she will yell at me one day. She’s nice, but I’m terrified to fail and have her yell at me. I work hard every day and I wish I didn’t worry about it so much. I even think about work on the weekends!

Started teaching again for the new school year, and it's going better than I expected, but I'm still not sure where I'm at is the best fit for me. I'm trying to find assurance that I should be in a better place, or stay here.

Today was my first day at a new job. It's cool, it's what I want to do, but 7 hours straight - I feel exhausted, and that makes me angry.

Nothing I do is ever good enough for other staff. I never seem to live up to the expectations.

I am in such a bad place. I applied for tons of jobs, and ended up getting the one I wanted the least. I am super unhappy and scared. I wake up crying and anxious after a restless night if sleep, and have spiraled into a hopeless loop always ending in: I hate my life and wish I was never born- what's the point? My college semester is about to start, too. I am so depressed and anxious, and nothing has even started yet. If this is where I am at the start, how bad will it get as time passes? 😭

New job. No training given yet expected to solve hard technical problems. Everyone I asked for help is unresponsive. My technically brilliant boss is a snob and makes me feel stupid when I ask him questions.

Started a new job and I’m trying so hard not to feel like I have been thrown into the deep end. Here’s to hoping I’m mostly doing the right things

This one customer irritates me so much. I'm not exactly sure why. I think it's because he's constantly entitled and sounds like the world revolves around him. He's never appreciative. Never thankful. Never kind. But he knows how to say stuff in a way that isn't technically/legally offensive. The only time he contacts my team is when there's a problem and he wants his way. That type of personality frustrates me so much. Just take take take

Sometimes I feel so overwhelmed that I'm frozen by my anxiety. I'll make a. List to breakdown the tasks, but it still feels like too much and I end up vacuuming the house instead...

People who work 9-5, how do you enjoy it. I’m starting a new job which pays well and is somewhat interesting but I want to live a fun life I just don’t see how that’s possible with working 9-5, 5 days a week.

I just wandering if is worthy complaining about our jobs and the people that work there, ultimately is our choice to stay or go somewhere else. I had worked in different places and everywhere is the same thing just different people 🙄
