How do you not get discouraged about job applications?

Anonymous
I was really hoping to get the job I applied for I’ve applied to others and haven’t heard back. But this particular one I definitely wanted. I had the first interview and was accepted for the second interview. With the second interview they told me they’d decide after another writing prompt and to send it by the end of the day today I had the second interview Saturday. I sent it this morning and literally received an email said the position has been filled around 4pm. I just feel like I’ve been dragged along 8 essays, 2 interviews, and another writing prompt later. They also told me that I needed to call my references and let them know this weekend they will be reaching out. They didn’t call them🙃 I’m trying not to feel down but at this point I’m beyond frustrated especially since I dislike my current job.
