Hello its getting closer and closer to my new job start date (29th April 2019) and still having anxiety. it's all i can think about at the moment I am excited but nervous at the same time. I am going to be an assistant charity shop manager and have had loads of experience before (used to volunteer at another charity shop) but i just keep having self doubt. I recently left my secure job of 4 years and this week is my last and i feel sad about it.

The most i am worried about is about managing the shop by my self if volunteers are not in or if my manager is not there i am also worried that my manager won't be nice.

I am doing full time for the first 2 weeks (37.5) hours and that is causing me a bit of anxiety 2 as i am used to part time hours ( i am not lazy i work hard its just for some reason i have heightened anxiety about this) i am also nervous about the shop as it is brand new and is not open yet (everytime i walk past no work is being done to it even though been told that the manager will be in the shop the week before).

I also don't know what days i am doing yet which is also concerning me as I can't plan anything for next week due to not knowing what days i am doing which sucks.

I have had this before in a previous job (used to do childcare) and had to leave due to anxiety and depression and I am just worried that it will happen again. I remember when I first started in the job I was in now and was nervous back then and now i am nervous about leaving funny I know.

Sorry for rambling I just need some ideas on how to cope with first day nerves and how to adapt to full time hours and to stop the constant worrying as I don't want to ruin my weekend with my partner before my new job.

You are letting your brain run away with you, and building it up to be bigger than it will be.

They wouldn’t have given you the job if they didn’t think you could do it.

Once you get there and start working, you’ll wonder why you put yourself through all this now.

You’ve got this.
