Good Morning and welcome to HealingWell.
I am not sure what profession you are in but as a professional myself I know it is very common for some of us to want to be perfect and when we cannot meet our own expectations we beat ourselves up. Try to be kind to yourself and remember you do not have to be perfect.
Since a new job is always accompanied by new surroundings, new co-workers, new responsibilities, and many uncertainties, starting a new job is a significant source of stress.
Coupled with the necessity of dealing with unfamiliar surroundings, people and expectations, beginning a new job is also associate with the fear of failure.
Rather then letting your new job stress overwhelm you, try to pinpoint the causes of your anxiety.
Being the new kid on the block is one of the most intimidating aspects of starting a new job. Try to gauge the level of familiarity at your new place of employment. Do people treat each other as close friends or keep their work and personal lives separate?
Use change to your advantage. Log your accomplishments as a way to track progress in your new position. However, if the stress associated with a new job is seriously affecting your life, make sure you get appropriate professional help.
