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.
