Troubles and a selfish prayer request

I've just about had it with my current job. I work as an editor at a nonprofit, and I am the only editor for the entire organization. I've been there for three months, and I'm struggling to adjust. Basically, they expect perfection out of me, and I have no "grace period" to learn the function of the job. Everybody hates me, and I don't fit in and I feel so alienated. I'm crumbling under the pressure, and I feel completely lost and miserable, and I have no idea what to do. 

I've been trying to pray and find God's will for my life, but it's so hard because I desperately want out of this environment and I feel so guilty because it pays so well. I have a feeling if I don't quit it's only a matter of time before I get fired, and I would rather quit than be fired.

Can I make the selfish request for you all to pray for me?

    You are not selfish. You have to do what God wants you to do and seeking His will is the best thing you can do. I will pray that the Lord shows you His plan for your life and you have the courage and faith to take that first step- in whichever direction it may be.

    Agreed.  I'll be praying for you that you find peace and that God reveals to you what you should do.

     <div>I've asked, but the answers I get don't really give me anything I feel like I can work with. It's just hard to be in a job where you are expected to be perfect right off the bad and not be given any time to learn. It just feels like no matter what I say their response is just "Do you job better" without giving me any tools or ideas how to do so.</div>

    That's not selfish at all! It's really hard to spend most of your waking hours at a place where you feel pressured and unliked. I can completely sympathize with you as I currently abhor my job duties/environment as well.

    Prayers going your way! ;0)
