Currently at work advice please!!

Posted , 3 users are following.

I'm sat in the toilets where I work at a resturant and I'm on my feet my muscles are so tense and I just feel so anxious like I don't belong. I've worked here about 3 days I'm just not used to the hours but I just don't feel this is the job for me. Is there something wrong with me? Is my anxiety or is it okay that I don't like the job? All I want to do is go home. I've been out of work for ten weeks I'm only 18 and finding it tough. I don't think resturant work is good for me with my anxiety. I just need some motivation or some advice because I don't want to feel or look like a failure sad but I just don't like it xx

    Hey Katie,

    With everything that's happened over the last few months, you might have some anxiety built up.

    Can you try to pust through and get through it for a few days?

    I think you can do it.

    As always, if you need anything, send me a PM!

    Good luck and all the best!

    I think you would feel like this wherever you are working just now. Go with the flow it's early days it will take more time to feel at home I think everybody feels like a fish out of water for ages and any mistakes which are bound to happen try laugh them off and tell customers you are new as all of us have been the new person at some point and no with or without suffering anxiety it's daunting and anxiety provoking as you really want to do well. Tell yourself it's normal and will get better. Take it day at a time and it will get easier. Hope your ok xx
