I put too much pressure on myself at work. I try to be perfect and it's wrong because when I make a little mistake, it takes me a week or more to get over it. I always have this fear of what others think about me and it becomes so exhausting.

Feeling quite rejected, are the jobs we do for money worth our health? :(( What are we doing to ourselves long term?

Wish I could find some purpose or meaning in my work. I’m always dreading doing in. Always counting down the hours until I can go home.

I have had a tough week, picking up the slack of others that don’t show up. I run the show and step up, but I feel that I’m not appreciated. There’s always more that I need to do with no sign of advancement. I need to break out if this funk.

Wish I was more confident at work, I keep messing up and feel as if people think I’m so incapable of doing things. Scared to attend events and go to events outside of work.

I've been in my line of work for over 12 year's and I've been at this new job for maybe 6 months and it's hard because the boss is a micro manager and never congratulates you on your good work but will always find something to cut you up for even if it's not true. Anyway it's hard because being in this line of work you think your coworkers would trust you.? Well these girls don't and it's hard because they won't give me any credit or trust me to do anything.

The new girl at work gets paid more than me

People seem to make friends at work and get along outside. Me? The moment I step out the front door, I'm basically dead for them. I don't think I should try anymore.

I’m starting a new job next week after staying at home for 3 years. Lots of emotions, positive and negative, hopeful and worried. Hoping I can thrive despite depression and anxiety. Hoping that going to work again will actually help my mental well-being.

I wish the work gossip would just stop. Makes me wonder what they say about me. It makes me sick the kinds of things people say about others.

I get to work a 12 hour shift due to overtime permission. It's the slowest day for this. I'm dying of boredom.

I have a hard time doing my tasks, I feel like I want to do them all at once, and I end up doing nothing

I keep thinking my job is my purpose but every week I pour everything into it and at the end of the week I go home on Fridays drained. I make all these plans to get home related things accomplished & tons of stuff done but then I am overwhelmed and end up watching tv all day all weekend. So I go back to work, dread it, pour myself out again because I have to and I feel obligated and the cycle starts over. I am not becoming my best self and I don’t know how to get off the carousel.

I broke down in front of my male boss! For a few seconds, there were tiny tears and I was choked up, couldn't speak, closed my eyes and didn't want to open!! Surprisingly though, I feel less embarrassed and more relieved that he knows the kind of pressure I'm facing. I can't stop worrying about it though :(

The only thing in my way, the only thing stopping me from pursuing the things I want to do in life, is ME. My mind wont allow me to. It’s strange that we chose supposed survival over happiness...

I’m struggling to go to work, I can feel the panic attacks starting as soon as I get there. Any suggestions?

I put my resignation letter at my boss' desk. Anxiously waiting for him to read it. Dont know how to relax :(

The company I work for wants too much from me. I’m spread out thin. They expect too much. I haven’t got a raise in over 2 years.

I’m 20 and I still never had a job. I’ve tried looking but no luck and I want to find one soon so my family doesn’t think I’m lazy and a disappointment

I’m a female in an entirely male law firm. Not to mention the youngest in it. I often feel that because of these factors, I’m scrutinized so much more than my counterparts. I feel that I never please the partners and feel embarrassed to ask for help with a matter.

I'm plagued by chronic pain and anxiety. I never seem to last more than a year at a job. I'm trying to get through without medication. Been fighting for 14 years

I work on a horse farm doing barn work and I absolutely love the job. This is baby season which is just amazing but I feel like some of the people I work with slack off and I end up cleaning more stalls, picking ice out of buckets and stuff while they hang out and laugh together.. it’s so frustrating

Having too much time off from work increases my anxiety and depression. I can’t enjoy the whole weekend or a whole vacation.
