I have a part time job as a cashier and tbh it sucks. The manager today noticed i struggle and get overwhelmed, he said i need to tell him soon whether i can handle working here or not. On the one hand the thought of never going back to that place makes me wanna cry tears of joy, on the other, I'm gonna disappoint my parents and let my anxiety win yet again. I just don't know what to do...mostly i just wish i had been born a normal confident competent person. Instead I'm a pathetic mess who can barely cope with even simple things

Larii, lots of people with mental health issues have a hard time coping with even the little, simple things. Being that way doesn't make you pathetic.

Customer service jobs can be tough. Maybe stick with the job for now, while also starting to look for another job. Then quit once you've found one that's more suitable for you. That way you won't be giving up, necessarily; you'll just be changing direction, while still maintaining your responsibility of holding down a job. These days, employers look for people with a lot of different work experience, so it'll look good on your resumé too.

I'm on disability due to being unable to work a public job..It's definitely no fun but I thank God I have it. I personally believe that you should take some time and think long and hard about it. Perhaps talk to your parents first and go from there. But it is not your fault..and you aren't a loser or pathetic at all. I understand wanting to be normal..but you never know..this experience might allow you to help someone else in the future. Hugs!

Dealing with rude customers at a job that requires you to deal with the public is the hardest part for me. I think most people are friendly. But sometimes a rude person will give you a hard time.

I have a sometimes misguided belief in the essential goodness of most people. It's part of the essentially optimistic personality I seem to have, but I frequently realize that I need the opinions of good, trusted friends on the behavior of someone else. When I was in my teens and 20s, it was a spark for fights occasionally, as someone would mistake my assumptions about their good intentions for not taking them seriously as a threat.
