I’m tired. I’m exhausted. I’m absolutely done with dealing with people. I want to hide in a hole and sleep for days. My bed is comfortable and is my safety net.
I’m at work. It’s Wednesday and everything is going wrong. I manage a store, my assistant manager called out for the third day in a row. My senior employee who is going part time needs either an hour and a half lunch or 4 hour lunch. I’m at my store by myself for 5-6 hours. They don’t understand I am picking up their slack, trying to get all my paperwork and my job done while doing theirs. They apologize or say thank you without realizing they are running me to the ground.
This is the second summer, I am getting short staffed and I’m the only one who has to be at the store 5 days a week for close to 11 hours a day. Yes, it’s my job but the lack of respect or realization what I am doing is going unnoticed by my employees and even my boss. I’ve been with this company for 3 years and I honestly love it but what I deal with at my store, no other manager has had to deal with for 2 summers in a row.
I want to have fun at work, I want to be a manager who has employees who are going to be at the store when they are scheduled. I want employees who realize the things I do for them on a daily basis. My life gets put on hold for them. I have to stay late if they call out or need to go home early. I can’t call out and I can only go home early if I am fully staffed.
I’m tired. I’m exhausted. I’m done. I want to sleep. I don’t want to stress and I don’t want my anxiety through the roof at work. I want my bed.
Please send help or advice to curb how exhausted I am from work. #Anxiety #exhausted #StrugglingWithEmotion #strugglingtoday
