Stress at Work

Just officially applied for a new job to escape a toxic work environment. Haven’t felt this hopeful and excited in a while :)

So, I am getting the feeling that I am not well liked at my job😔 I got home from work today and checked some emails I wasn’t able to read while at work. Then I see an email chain with an all staff photo taken today, but without me in it...Even more weird, no one bothered to tell me they took just felt like a slap in the still stings... the story of my life... I still thank God He is with me through it all, in Jesus’ name 🙏☔️

Even the thought of going to my job gives me horrible anxiety but I don’t even know what I’m scared of. All my “what if’s” have clear solutions but I can’t stop being scared. Any suggestions?

Having a bad day at the office. I’ve been feeling depressed lately and having to put on a fake smile is giving me anxiety. I really don’t feel like being around any co-workers. Plus, we have an office party today, which I do not want/feel like attending.

is It me or do customers seem to be much more rude during the holidays?

Today I had my 6 month review today at my job, in the review my supervisor told me that she is concerned because I really stress about doing a good job and being “perfect” and that I don’t have to do that, then she asked if I’m not counting all my hours worked to make it look like I’m doing better than I am (I’m definitely NOT doing that). I’ve already been on edge this week and I ended up breaking down and crying in front of my supervisor and NOW I’m stressed about that too

I work as a jeweler for a big company so everyone is freaking out to get all this jewelry done and back for the holiday. I’m so stressed I could break down, my boss keeps having me stay until 7:00 at night when I’ve been here since 9:00 am and doesn’t care if we say we’re tired or don’t feel good. He just says “everyone is tired” and it’s so frustrating. I don’t want to be here anymore.

I have a job that I can legally talk to nobody with but the people that I work with. It makes it hard to deal with work stress because I can’t even talk about it. I don’t want to vent to my coworkers because I don’t want to be a burden. I can’t wait to leave this job.

I am so exhausted that I cannot stop worrying didn’t teach my students well enough and they will not do well in their assignments due to my “failure” (and they will be angry with me)

Quitting my job tomorrow. Glad because i’ll finally enjoy my weekends, and I’ll have more time to do revision and see my family. However, really worried about not having money. After working for so long, it will be strange to not have money anymore.

I feel a bit left out because there was a get together last night with some colleagues (and a former one who was in charge of the get together and someone I don’t care for) and I wasn’t invited. I feel a bit bad, but I know I wouldn’t have even gone if I was invited. Shows her true character and how unfriendly she is.

I normally don’t discuss my anxiety with people at work but lately my boss has been noticing things. She notices when I get tired or break out in an anxiety rash or just need a break for a few minutes. It’s a stressful time of year and I know she has good intentions but the fact that it’s visible is making me more anxious.

Three days with high school at-risk students before winter break. The gravity is heavy, and the clock is dragging! I’m antsy!

Just waking up for work and I feel like crying bc I know I gotta go into work. It seems like everyday makes it harder and harder to go into that place.

I lost my job that I absolutely loved last month due to having laryngitis within my 6 months probation, now I’m struggling to find another job due to being dismissed from the role

I quit my job 4 months ago, to just get some time off and solve my psychological issues. Now i don't know why i am not capable of starting to learn, to get another job. I feel so stuck :(

Today after work I felt a heavy sadness. I came across some people who gave me a negative looks throughout the day. Some of these people I had bad experience with in the past. I felt I was being silently judge and somehow my actions today has cause a look of disgusted, even if I didn’t meant it. I had felt my anxiety was high today before work but I’m not sure if it’s the anxiety or actually people getting mad with me.

I don’t feel appreciated at my job at all, despite being the one always asked to pick up others slack. I can’t seem to put aside the rage I feel at these people, even though i like the job itself. Ugh.

Got very stressed at work the other day... felt I was in a panic for the whole afternoon. I’m still thinking about work and it is stressing me out on my time off. Love my job but it causes me a lot of stress.

I can’t believe that the whole of last week still upsets me at work. My friend from work came back from her other job to work and when I told her all the things that happened I almost felt like crying and I had to fight really hard to not cry in front of her because I didn’t want her to see how upset it really made me. It was the most horrendous week out of 3 months. Everyone no longer talking to each other, except for me and her. Thank God for her, so grateful.

It's really frustrating when my boss needs to talk to me every day about how I'm not doing job good enough or I'm taking short cuts or I'm fast. I've been doing my job for 12 year's. I wish she would leave me alone. Even if I stand up fir myself she finds something..🙄
