Article Body:
There are many people in the world who can not stand where they work. Their occupation causes them no
end of stress and can leave them struggling to get to sleep at night. There are also many days taken off sick
through stress related illnesses. It is now time for people to deal with these issues and to start to react in a
more positive and proactive way.


In the past I have worked for companies whose employees have made my life unbearable. These so called
colleagues were very bitchy, hanged around in various clans and would stab people in the back at regular
intervals. At times I would even dread going to work and would feel sick whilst travelling to my office.


I would return home feeling very drained and would have little energy to do anything in the evenings. I
would then decide to go to bed early but would basically just lay their worrying about the next day. This
could last for hours on end and at times would last all of the night.


I have read that plenty of sleep is a good way at reducing levels of stress, the question is, how does one get
to sleep in the first place?


When I did have the energy to socialise with family or friends, the fear of going to work would end up
ruining the night and would stop me from enjoying myself. I felt sorry for the people I was with and hoped
that I did not ruin their night as well.


For whatever reason I did not have the confidence to tell people about the problems I had and kept it bottled
up to myself. This I now realise was a mistake and I have since learnt to talk about any issues that I have.
For all the stress I had to endure, I certainly was not paid enough. The people who I worked with, including
the team leaders, did not treat me with as much respect as I felt I deserved. This period was a very unhappy
stage of my life and my health started to become affected.


I wanted to leave this company a lot earlier than the time that I eventually did, the problem was that I did not
feel that I could afford to. I decided to save up enough money over a period of about six months so that I
could then make my escape. At the same time I started to look at finding alternative work and thought long
and hard about which career path I wanted to take.


On the day that I left this job, I will never forget my journey home. I could not stop smiling, I was so
relieved that this nightmare was over once and for all.


I am happy to let you know that I have not found myself in a similar situation since. There may well be a
time in the future of course when I do and if this ever happens to me again I am determined to leave a lot
quicker than I did before. Life is to short to spend living in the way that I had.
