Is it normal i’m just overwhelmed with dealing with ppl?

And all their various personality types and how they are. This person is like this, he’s like that, so-and-so do this. And either it’s me not knowing how to handle it all anymore. How to respond. How to handle when they don’t respond to me in the way I expect or like. When they seem annoyed with me or if I’m not liking them.

This is especially true in the workplace. Mostly the case. Otherwise I wouldn’t interact with people much outside, except polite conversation with the grocery cashier or a barista, etc. it’s mostly my coworkers.

I’m frustrated. I’m tired of doing this. Mind you I can’t say anyone at work I feel much love for. Maybe I’m codependent or this is a symptom of a personality disorder I have I don’t know. I just don’t ever remember having it this bad. Consistently not liking people or my coworkers. Or I don’t mind them or I do like them but one little conversation is awkward or weird or they do something I don’t like and now I am like doomsday scenario about it and want to quit constantly

  • It's ok to not like people at work. Honestly I'd prefer to only talk about work and nothing else with co workers but I can't that because it may hurt people's feelings

    • Yeah. Except I think by default I go on this auto-mode of the nice/friendly guy who wants to like everyone and vice versa.
      It’s very hard for me to actively hold onto the feeling of not liking someone for a long period of time. By the time I work with them again, either I’ve obsessed on it and made it worse or I’ve let it go and feel better. But it just seems to start up again.

  • Did you have a job before?

    • Yes. There’s always been rude coworkers or a mean manager but somehow it never used to get to me this way. One of my managers right now sometimes has an attitude and I’m not sure how it’s affecting me.

  • You really dont have to like your coworkers though. I have worked with alot of people I didnt like I just went to get a check and got out of there.
