GRADUATION symbolises the completion of studies and receiving your qualification. However, for many people, life after graduation can lead to negative feelings.


Some graduates struggle with feeling miserable all the time, tiredness, restlessness, loss of interest in life and being unable to enjoy anything.

They are indecisive and have trouble sleeping, while isolating themselves and at worst, losing confidence in themselves.

Possible causes:

  • Lack of employment opportunities
  • Living up to social expectations
  • Overwhelming reality of the real world
  • Lives people display on social media

Here are some ways to cope:

  • Do not settle for feeling like a failure
  • Find someone to talk to
  • Take up physical activity to stay active
  • Stop comparing yourself to others
  • Make healthier choices
  • Embrace your free time by focusing on things you care about
  • Keep a list of achievements and positive things and people
  • Volunteer, to build your experience.

It is important to remember that not being chosen by a company doesn’t mean that you are a bad candidate. Although what you feel is temporary, it is important to maintain a healthy outlook.
