The detrimental effects of stress gets downplayed in today's society. And when it comes to workplace stress, this is especially true. People expect that work is supposed to be stressful and that if you are not stressed, you are not taking it seriously. However this does not have to be the case. If you feel like a job is taking a strain on other aspects of your life, don't hesitate to take action. Try talking to your boss and being honest about your health. You should try and work the best way you can, in a suitable environment. Though your work should be accommodating, when it comes down to it, there is no amount of money that can compensate for health problems due to stress.
Depression usually comes as a result of unfulfilled expectations. This is what happens when you suffer from workplace stress. You expect to be in a normal environment where you can showcase your skills and knowledge. Workplace stress ensues when you get nothing but tasks. And all this happens when you encounter lack of understanding. When you're feeling negative, it's your mind telling you to deserve more. Don't hesitate to listen to it and find help or a better solution. Talk to a specialist or a friend; other people can help a lot.
