Fed up being unemployed - any tips to make me feel better/ improve chances of finding work?

I've been unemployed since July this year and I've been constantly looking for work. I left college this year and unlike everyone else in my group I'm not going to University so obviously I've been trying to find work. Its a pain though as I live in a small sea-side town and its expensive to travel into the city (I've applied to city-jobs also) . I've done volunteering work already for a year (like to do more, but nothing is appealing to me at the moment.) so I do nothing each day. I feel quite down at the moment as I see most people I know either in work/college or Uni, even another person in the same situation as me is planning on going to University next September while I'm doing nothing. My mum keeps telling me that I can only look and there won't always be jobs available (especially as all the seasonal stuff has gone.) But its horrible feeling this way. I recently quit a work placement as I felt intimidated by the other workers as they kept asking me really inappropriate things and left me on my own for 5 hours.. Sorry for rambling but I have a bit on my mind at the moment - any advice? I need to find work.
