Is it normal that I feel depressed and my confident level is really decreasing?

I got laid off 2 months ago and got very sad. But now I'm actively looking for a job and ready to go back to work field. I've been sending my resume online for job postings, and even went to placement agencies to help me to look for a job but seems that it's really hard to find one. I'm getting depressed and don't want to socialize anymore. Is it normal?

It is normal to feel depressed and for your self esteem and confidence to be shaken by your current situation. However, you shouldn't shut yourself away from you friends and family during this time because they can end up being your saving grace. You should try using your connections and network to find a job.

If you want to have a better life, do nothing and say nothing and think nothing for 10 minutes without stopping. Every time you do that, you should be happier for the rest of the day.
