WOMAN WANTS TO QUIT JOB BECAUSE TOO MUCH STRESS, COLLEAGUES CALL HER “WEAK”

Long story short, I currently got this job through 2 of my current colleagues recommendation.. been in it for 1 year plus n realised that this job is not really what I want.. loads of deadlines and expects you to put in overtime quite often without getting paid.

This 2 colleagues of mine came from a place where the working environment was obnoxious and they seem to love to compare the current one to it and boast that they have been put through the grind and this is child’s play to them.. they work on weekends and have no life outside of their work and expects everyone to be like them..

Recently I have been contemplating to leave and they have been all sorts of guilt tripping me saying I am weak and I am unable to take stress and all comparing me to them and said I should also put in extra hours like them on the weekend or even when I’m on my own personal holidays they have been badgering me to get work done.

If you were me, would you leave? And it would be nice to hear if there are other horror colleagues who behaves like a cult culture?

Netizens’ comments

Flip the script on them, they aren’t guilt tripping you, they’re giving you constructive advice.

So you can reply, “I guess you guys are right, I’m probably not a good fit for this job, I can’t to take the stress like you guys can. That’s why I’m thinking of finding a job that’s a better fit for me. And the company can also hire someone else who’s a better fit for this job’s demands, so it’s a win-win situation for everyone. Thanks for the helpful advice!”

And OP, don’t let what they’re saying about being “weaker” get to you. Different people have different strengths, and thrive under different environments. Your colleagues may thrive in this job, but it may be that this job simply doesn’t play to your strengths. It’s possible that you’ll shine when given the right roles and environment, and you can only realistically achieve that by changing jobs.
