Lost Job Feeling Depressed – Quotes to Manage Disappointment & Depression

Lost job feeling depressed? Well, here is something for you! Kasturi joined our team very recently and she did a fabulous job so-far. This post is dedicated to Pavan who requested us to create something that can help him manage depression after losing a job. This one is for you Pavan 🙂

You have a train to catch and you realize you have overslept through your whining alarm and now you just have a quarter of an hour to reach the faraway railway station. You miss the bath, skip the breakfast, pick up your home keys and run through the bustling city crowd. You reach the station only to find the train slowly picking up speed as it makes its way out of the station. You run after it ducking and dodging the crowd, get reminded of the ‘dilwale dulhaniyan’ scene in a hope that someone repeats it for you, then suddenly realizing the gravity of the situation dust yourself off of the dream, smirk a little, keep on running and at the end, you miss the train.

How do you feel? It’s just a train and you ran after it like one would run for one’s life. But this is what we all feel when we miss a train, loose a bet, friend, love, or job – Disappointment! How easy it is to get into depression? I hope not when I have got some great collection of quotes for you all to help you manage depression (if any), or you can just read them to cheer yourself up. Hope you digest all your depression after a full course meal of happiness.

“There are moments when troubles enter our lives and we can do nothing to avoid them. But they are there for a reason. Only when we have overcome them will we understand why they were there.” ― Paulo Coelho

“Fight on, brave knights! Man dies, but glory lives! Fight on; death is better than defeat! Fight on brave knights! for bright eyes behold your deeds!” ― Walter Scott

“Ever day is a chance given to better your yesterday and brighten your tomorrow” ― Beverley Malcolm

“Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” – Albert Einstein.

So did your friend get into a reputed engineering college? Or did colleague pass ahead of you to bag that promotion? And now you are left with disappointment and i-am-a-nobody kind of a feeling. I don’t need to say anything here as Albert Einstein makes it so true. Each one of us is made for things we are good at and if we cannot fit into others’ definition of perfectness, we will create one. Remember, ice trays are meant only for ice and not ice-cream. So don’t try to fit in a place never built for you. Build one for yourself!

“The best way to cheer yourself up is to try to cheer somebody else up.” – Mark Twain

I know it must be very tough to make others laugh when you are sulking yourself but at least for the time being it helps to ease your pain. So wear the mask and spread happiness!

“The best way to predict the future is to invent it.” – Alan Kay.

When you have lost many opportunities and life seems to be at an end, create opportunities for yourself. It’s true that life never gives us a second chance…..in fact it gives us innumerable chances. So don’t feel doomed by failures. They will not make your future, you will!

“A ship is safe in the harbor but that’s not what ships are for.”—William GT Shedd.

We can take the easier route which will be good enough for our mundane life but good is not what we are looking for. We have to take risks in order to succeed. We have to dive deep to collect the best shells. Once we can gather the courage to take the risk, there’s no looking back as success won’t be far enough.

Courage definitely helps to fight depression and disappointment. Here is a video that has some cool quotes related to courage!
