Is it just me or is it hard to keep a job.Like everyone's emotions runs high and stress and you feel it all.It gets to me.I try not to but I just want to know that I am not alone here.It takes a lot for me not to yell at people or just send bad energy their way we work goes bad.I somehow manage though.

I can't work in an environment that's too stressful or I have panic attacks as well.I will not do customer service.

Had to leave my job last year, I had what can only be called in this world as a `mental breakdown` I was absorbing the emotions of a lad with learning disabilities (a very stressed, angry, confused and anxious individual) it took me a long time to realise my feelings and thoughts were not my own - outbursts and intrusive thoughts, it was a year of hell because I was caring for him every day, all week. - I am now terrified of working in the care industry because of the empathy, the not knowing how to manage it I guess.

Moving to my new job I have had so much stress because of other people and their nasty talking behind backs, gossiping, bullying of coworkers, being overworked.... I have (within four months of being here), fallen out with three people, I have yelled at two of them, told them all I cant stand their nastiness) Its so difficult because I am not a confrontational person (certainly never used to be)....

I have a job interview today, basically the same kind of work `kitchen` - I like to be hidden these days :) Its part time so I can study on the side..... I have no idea if I will meet happy or negative individuals?.... I just know work and being around people for too long is bad for my health and certainly is not advancement of humanity itself - If I had the chance to, I would up and leave civilization, live off the land and live peacefully somewhere in the country

You are definitely not alone :)

I can soooo relate! I am currently working in CPA firm where there are long hours and high stress. Not only from the clients (if they wind up owing, they take it out on the preparer), but very negative and toxic co-workers. Add no boss at the office to keep all of the craziness in check (satellite office). I am at the point now where I am physically getting ill from the constant inflow of bad energy. Had to miss work today because I just had to have alone time and rest. No amount of grounding, cleansing, praying, smudging, etc can fend off all of the garbage. I thought since discovering I was an empath and learning techniques to manage the influx of energies I would be ok this season but I think this will be my last season at this place. Not worth it!

There are some places you just can't help because it is so bad.I think it's best you find a position where you work alone there or find another job period.

I think with being an empathy whatever makes you feel best and whatever makes you the happiest is the best thing we can do.
