Getting along with colleagues at work

Hi friends,

I used to work at big companies and just last year I started to work in a small company (80 ppl). I used to be happy to go to work, enjoy making friends in the company and hang out with the closer ones on the weekends as well. But few months after I started at my current company, I found myself depressing at work. I feel bored, not motivated, cannot concentrate at meetings. And I feel like my colleagues don't want to talk to me or give me fake smiles when they see me. My manager told me I am a different person but I don't know what's got into me. Should I seek help from a therapist?

Thank you for reading my post!

Hi I assume you think you could be suffering from anxiety/depression as you have posted in here? If I was in your shoes I would see my doctor first to see what s/he thinks. x


Thank you for replying my post!

I have tried sports, meditation, talking to my manager etc. When I talk to my family and friends, they basically suggest me to leave this company. I am just not sure what to do.

I will take your advice and talk to a therapist..

Thank you again!

Sounds like you should see a therapist and a psychiatrist in case meds are needed. Hang in there.


When you say you're bored, unmotivated and having difficulty concentrating that does sound like depression. But how are you outside of work? I always think if you are questioning whether to seek therapy or not it's always better to lean toward yes. I think we can all use the opportunity to check in on our mental and emotional well-being even when we're "ok".


When I am at home, I feel much better really, sort of feeling relieved. I tried to look up books, internet when these symptoms just started and some websites suggest I might have a "burnout" from work. So I took few days off and visited few places I have never been before. Yes I got better after I came back from my trips but few weeks later, the issue came back again.


I think my manager felt my stresses as well and I am not sure if I will be at risk of losing my job for these symptoms I am experiencing.


I would see a therapist immediately so he/she can refer to a psychiatrist. Sounds like you're heading in a bad direction.
