Whenever I work, I go home and obsess over every little thing I didn't do perfectly, all the mistakes I made (if any), etc. and it gets me depressed.

Anyone have any idea why my mind works like this? Ever heard of anyone else being like this? I need help.

Think about it this way. What if you didn't have a job at all? You're pretty lucky to be employed these days as it's not easy getting a good job.

Cheer up, you could always be a starving child in a third-world country.

Well, I DO have OCD and some anxiety issues, but I've never heard of either causing someone to be like this about the one thing they can do to be a functional part of society.


Maybe I'm not cut out to be on a working force. Perhaps I should just bite the bullet and busk for a living.


EDIT: To the above, that's just the problem. I don't have a job because I'm hesitant to apply anywhere, because working makes me feel this way.

...that's a given. The drive to control people and things leads to depression, lad. It will only disappoint you in the end.

Meh... the easy way out never leads to champagne, if you get what I mean.

maybe you hate your job?
There is a war going on for your mind.

If you are thinking, you are winning.


Resistance is victory.

First you say you work? Now you have never had a job? You've lost me there...

You're a perfectionist?

You obsess over every minute imperfection... if you have some need to do everything perfectly, it's not surprising that you'd have an adverse reaction to imperfection, it just happens that you get depressed. That could be a result of low self-esteem.

Like this :

Do things imperfectly > obsess over those imperfections > associate imperfections to your own shortcoming > depressed.

When did I say I never had a job? Of course I've had a job or subbed in for people on several occasions, but I hate it every time.

It sounds like you're worried about your efficiency at your job, and it's carrying over to the rest of your life.

I'm kind of the same way, but with schoolwork. When I go home after a test/quiz, I ALWAYS think about my solutions, if I did anything wrong, what grade I might get, etc. I always somehow convince myself that I did terrible too. Last quiz in math, after thinking it over I thought I'd get a low B or a high C, but I ended up getting a flat A (A+ if you include the points that I got from an extra credit problem).

I just worry like that

But studying seems to actually improve my mood, so I don't know what to tell you.

Yeah, I'm just trying not to reply to too many posts in here because with mental stuff it's not just an "OMG you're right!" situation. I gotta work things out and maybe see if I can get therapy and/or a professional diagnosis. This thread is really just so I can figure out what MIGHT be the problem, not what really IS the problem.

I do think you might be on to something, though.
