I’m happy with my life except for one minor detail … I HATE going to work Monday to Friday. I feel like my boss owns me and my life is not my own. My job is also holding me back because I’m not learning anything new or useful. I worry about my future. It’s draining my life force and making me sick. I literally need to quit so I can recover and reclaim myself. Looking for another job in this mental state is not what I want to do. I need time between jobs because I never get a decent vacation. I want to be FREE!!! Tuesday, Sep 19th 7:27PM
I want to renovate my house. I want to do a Barista course. I want to plan for my future. I want to spend more time with family. If I get another job, I want it to be one that I really love. I don’t want to get up at 4am to go to work anymore. I don’t want to work on the week-ends. I don’t want to work until 10pm at night anymore. I want to spend time in my garden. While I love customers, I don’t want o have to deal with grumpy badly behaved people anymore. Monday, Sep 18th 8:01PM

Mentally, emotionally and physically I can no longer do my current job. I have wanted to start my own business for a long time and have done a lot of research and decided on the business I will start. I have the finances to start my own business and to pay my bills, without changing anything, for 5 months so I feel comfortable quitting my current job. If I scale back, I can stretch that even longer. And knowing that, I no longer feel stuck; I feel relieved and excited. Saturday, Jul 15th 8:21AM

It’s a dead-end job, I’m not making enough money and I can’t achieve even my most basic objectives for the future; also, there’s the perspective of having to travel for work, which I don’t intend to do. Friday, Jul 7th 3:34AM

My job is overwhelming me to the point of depression. I am underpaid, undervalued, and overworked. I have many responsibilities, at times covering the responsibilities of three employees. I feel dread when I wake up in the morning at the thought of going in. Monday, Jul 3rd 1:18PM
1. I’m not enjoying the work Friday, Jun 30th 11:55PM
2. I feel blocked when trying to innovate
3. Some co-workers are impossible to reason with
4. My boss chooses the advice of the coworker over mine
Want a job with a different industry, different duties, and room for growth. Looking for a better work environment, colleagues to befriend, and opportunities to further my career. Burnt out of this job. Thursday, Jun 29th 9:09AM

Because the job im in right now isnt for me. I fell in the job. I suck at IT. Monday, Jun 26th 7:59AM
1. My health is suffering. In terms of my physical health, I have been putting off visiting a doctor for nearly a year. There were also days in the past few months that I was contemplating suicide. I smoke too much at work (Don’t feel the need to, at home). Sunday, Jun 25th 1:58AM
2. I have no work-life balance. Even after trying multiple times to balance my work-life, I keep falling back to 12-hour workdays (This is an improved no.!). No extra curricular activities, no friends left, have met my boyfriend only 3 to 4 times this entire year (And he lives in the same city as me).
3. My elder sister is suffering from severe anxiety and depression, she talks about committing suicide everyday. My parents are aging and find it difficult to look after her, once she moved back in with us. I feel like I am unable to contribute at home, as I am so bogged down at work.
4. I never had a great boss and was seriously thinking of quitting my job for more than 6 months. My boss quit and so I decided to stay back to assess the situation after his notice. My new boss doesn’t seem to like me too much, he does not share information too easily as well. He has also recruited somebody whose position would be between us two – which means that I would report into two people instead of one. I feel that this is quite unfair since I have had a large contribution in running the department up till now. I feel that it would be futile to work hard now and not worth the effort to impress my new boss. Also, nearly all of my old team had already moved on.
5. I feel too burnt out to look for another job while at this job. Whenever I have got offers from other companies, I am turning them down as I feel I am too tired to go for an interview and definitely too tired to prove myself at a new job.
My job stress has created depression in my life to the point I am taking medication for it. Thursday, Jun 22nd 12:04AM

I am getting physically ill from this, and it costs me money to get there every day. Friday, Jun 16th 1:16PM
I have classic signs of burnout and compassion fatigue despite being in the field for a brief period (less than 1 year). I also feel I have lost the passion that once motivated me to enter the field of counseling. My other passions keep calling to me, such as writing, traveling, and adventuring outdoors. Tuesday, Jun 13th 1:44PM
