I almost don't want to get the job

I'm waiting to hear if I've got a part time job that would be really good for me. I've had two interviews already. But I almost don't want it because with everything I get involved with, I start off...

Can't understand very simple things

It feels like being slightly mentally challenged. I need to be walked through everything, step by step. Without fail, I will always mess up when doing things like filling out paperwork or forgetting...

Need help dealing with weird situation

Long story short, I used to have a much different job. At this job I worked with a man who I got along with well. He's very friendly and always took an interest in what my career plans were, etc. But...

If I don't compare myself to others, I like my life and myself. But when I'm around other people, then yes, I feel like a loser.

For instance, I'm in college right now, and I'm worried it isn't...

I don't like to celebrate my birthday. I'm embarrassed by all the attention.

I turned 25 on my last birthday, and it's just a reminder of how much I have yet to do. I don't live on my own or have...

Yes, me too. I'm very, very slow when speaking to someone. I ask people to repeat about half of what they say. And even then, I forget almost all of it. Someone could literally tell me to do two very...

Happiness is a silly term to me. It's more like satisfaction, which money does give you.

I don't think you need a ton of money to be satisfied. You need enough to where you don't have to worry...

Rather than using alcohol, you're better off exercising and eating healthy. It sounds like a lot less fun than drinking, but alcohol is no solution. It really won't be like what you think. You should...

Rich, if I could win it instead of earn it. Even when I'm not anxious, I'm quiet and introverted. Getting rid of SA wouldn't change that much about how I live my life. I'd be less anxious without SA,...

I hear you. I get exhausted after being around people for just a few hours, and sometimes even if I don't speak a word the whole time. The environment itself is too stimulating. I can't imagine...

I completely shut down when I'm out in public and attention is on me, whether I like people I'm around or not. I could barely function at an internship over the summer because I sat in the same room...

I really feel for you. As I get older and have more responsibilities, I too have to spend more time away from my family. I also spend a lot of time wishing I could give everything up and just stay...

And then you ask a genuine question, and they respond back sarcastically. If someone asked me something I thought they should know by now or be able to figure out on their own, I'd instantly feel...

Yes. I always start things off strong (friendships, school, jobs), and it all gets worse and worse until I can't stand it anymore. The more I get familiar with something, the more I just want to get...

I can work for hours and hours without having a problem...so long as there aren't other people around.

I hear you. I'm terrified of working in general because I'd mess things up or be too nervous.

At least you tried. I know that doesn't solve anything, but at least you went for something.

I've thought about this a lot. It's possible in certain situations, I think, but for me at least, I'm so exhausted by it that I can't keep it up. Or if I'm just in a bad mood one day, I won't even...

That's so rude of her! I'd be offended too. Your comment about nearly telling her to eat a salad and join a gym made me laugh.

I have the exact same problem. Unfortunately I have no solution for people like us. All I can say is that I sympathize. I'm sorry you have this too, but I'm glad I'm not alone.

It's actually only an internship. I don't even have a real job yet, and after this experience, I probably won't.

I can tell they regret letting me intern there. I can't understand verbal...
