This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I haven't posted in here for a while and a lot has happened since I have.
I got a job back in June whereby I get a qualification out of it. I started dating a guy since July who I'm still with. And I'm a step closer in getting my full license as I got my green Provisional License. In Australia, you get your Learners Permit at 16, have to do 120 hours (20 of those driving at night), your red Provisional License at 17, your green Provisional License at 18 and your full License at 20. I only got my green Provisional License last August at 19.
You must be wondering as to why I'm posting here in this forum because things seem to be going my way. But they aren't. There's so many things going on in my life at the moment that is stressing me out. There's my assignments that I have to do to become a qualified Childcare worker for my job, the validation where someone comes out and inspects Child Care centers either passing or failing the centre is the biggest thing in the Child Care industry, doing critical reflections for work every week and working 10 (well 9.5 including my half hour lunch break but I'm AT work for 10 hours) hour shifts 4 days a week is starting to get to me. Even though I have Monday's of from work, I'm spending it studying, at the gym or finding time to spend with my family, friends and boyfriend. Then it's all the negative thoughts like that I'm not doing well and that I'll be the one that fails the centre when it comes to validation. Also spending time with my friends, family and my boyfriend is added on to my stress.
Now to top it all off, work has decreased my shifts this week. From working 9.5/10 hour days 4 times a week totaling 38 hour weeks, this week they've given me Monday (as usual) off as well as Wednesday. Tuesday I'm only working 8 hours (7.5 including my lunch break). I don't understand why. I don't know if it's because I'm not needed much this week. But I feel like I've been kicked in the gut.
After I get my qualification, I don't know if I'll still have a job because when someone does a traineeship and gets their qualification while working after a year, they can look for the same position at a different company who is looking for someone with that qualification or the company they were working for while they were doing their traineeship will keep them on.
The company I'm currently working for is opening up 2 new Child Care centers but one is not opening up till next year and I finish my traineeship in June or July.
I'm just so stressed out with everything going on in my life.

Hi, Rianna.

Sorry about all the things going on. I can see how that would stress you out.

Umm... How about on time off, do something fun with your boyfriend, something both of you would enjoy? And something else, YOU time. There's nothing better to do when you're stressed out, then to do something relaxing. At night or something when things aren't so hectic after a long day, take a nice warm bubble bath, have a tasty snack, lay in bed and cuddle with a pet or pillow, or do anything else that relaxes you.

Remember that confidence is key. It's probably most likely them not being as busy to need people working as long this week. It could be anything. Whenever you think you've done something wrong, look over all the reasons why you probably haven't. The mind's pretty tricky and tries to always make us think something's our fault.

You're amazing, make sure you take care of yourself. Hope you feel better and get things worked out. Remember that I'm here if you need me.

Stay Strong <3
