No amount of money is worth losing yourself.

Sometimes I wonder would I've been more happier if I was broke

Today I stood up for myself at work. I’m scared of the consequences. But I keep telling myself that it’s the right thing to do.

I'm starting to hate everyone at my current job which is why I left my last job. Why do ppl insist on making it difficult to work together or just get along? I dont want to hear another peep about inspection or lazy coworkers everyone needs to get their pop in a group

Put yourself first! Remember not to take on extra work unneccesarily. Coworkers/management will take advantage of you with no benefits to you and no one will thank you for it. You'll just be burnt out.

Just had a stranger come into work and inform me unprompted that I’m fat. (I’m 125 pounds and 5 foot 7). I told him to get out and never come back. I threw his 10 at him and told him good luck finding gas elsewhere at this hour. He had the audacity to get mad because there were actually consequences to his actions. Ugh. Being out in this world really tests your faith in the overall intelligence/goodness of people.

Sad..when you start a job full of hope & motivation..then the manager/team make you feel worthless..& you give up caring about the job/company

I think I have Imposter syndrome and I take anything my manager says as a personal attack at how I don't deserve what I've got, even though I know I've earnt it. Don't know how to come out of it

I legit cannot tell if my job is a trigger for my anxiety or if my anxiety is making my work stress feel unbearable. Chicken or egg, I guess. If it’s the former, there may be no solution aside from quitting. If it’s the latter, I need to figure out what I need to do to get myself back on track.

I don’t like talking just for the sake of talking, but I feel like I have to talk to make my new coworkers like me :( . Especially since I’m new, I’m afraid of people judging me. “How was your weekend?” “Wow, is it going to rain today?” These kind of conversations get so old and pretentious. I feel fake when I do small talk like this.

I'm at work and my colleague just said, to my face, in front of everyone that I am so weird and that I operate on a different wave length and that all my responses are a near-miss from the right ones

Coworkers that start gossip are like so childish because once everyone knows about it the one that started it don't got the courage to admit it 😒😒

It’s really fun when you have a job interview and they tell you about the job and all the great learning opportunities and then you start the job and it is literally just the hard bit, with none of the interesting development work they said you’d get to do

I finally exploded to C today. It’s been weeks of her bossing me about (two months and a half) and making life miserable for everyone, especially me. The rest of the staff even nicknamed her ‘my boss’ when she is on same level as me. She doesn’t know anything about teamwork and complains about everything. It’s not my fault she doesn’t know how to take a break, have a holiday and works two jobs. That’s not my fault.

Why are the people at my job so mean sometimes.. if I smile at them they give me a blank stare or if I hold a door open then don’t even acknowledge me.. sometimes I just wanna start crying even though it’s so small..

i'm a postman (mailman) here in the uk, as you can imagine it is super busy right now and I am so so stressed and overwhelmed by my work load I actually came home and cried today.

My coworker looked at the results of my personality test and asked me, “Do you consider yourself bland? I can see that.” Because out of 4 personality options, I matched with 3. I guess to him being apart of 3 groups muddled together into a gray, boring puddle. My personality is different outside of work. At work, I’m guarded, since I’m an introvert.

Today I put in my three weeks notice. I have nothing planned after that but I couldn’t stay there. I kept getting panic attacks and kept dropping the ball on my responsibilities as a manager and I can’t keep up especially during rush. I’m averaging at 4 hours of sleep and have a half an hour commute to work.

Normally I like my job but I'm just so mentally and emotionally drained, I'm just hanging on in there till I'm off for Christmas. I am so done.

Just handed in my notice at a job that has been terrible for my anxiety and depression. I've been there less than two months, but it's such a toxic work environment. I feel relieved, but also feel like a failure that I couldn't tough it out.

Have to deal with something confrontational today. 6 months ago not a problem, now I feel sick before I’ve even got to work
