When You Are Experiencing Stress At Work, Is It OK To Let It Show?

Stress at work is common. There are constant deadlines, challenges, budgets and even social pressures. The list is endless to the amount of things that can stress you out at the office, however, everyone handles their stress differently.

Some people become introverted and hide away in their offices or cubes. You might wish that they asked for assistance because you had some extra time and could have easily managed to lend a helping hand.

Others become uncomfortably loud and freak out publicly. If you've ever witnessed someone have a breakdown at work it can be pretty awkward because now you've seen them at their most vulnerable stage. Stress happens to all of us, so when it does, do you think it's OK to let it show?

Make a list please. If I am stressed I am stressed it happens to everyone and I've never been thought less of because of it. I would never cry at work if you are crying at work there is a problem and you need to find something else!

Toxxic there used to be a fit poll but then it got erased but somehow our comments got stuck with this poll I worked for a doctor where you are constantly stressed due to peoples stupidity. But you can never show it. Im one of those people who has "professional phone voice" meaning no matter how much you annoy me you wont know because I can hide it

It's kind of aggravating when people get flustered at work if you are on the receiving end. Usually if I get upset or whatever I just go to the bathroom and do the silent scream.
