Please do not get disappointed and never give up. There is competition in all fields. Use Google and search things like "How can a graphic designer market himself", etc and read many related marketing things and try newer way. Don't worry, be persistent.

Have you tried local businesses? map all the developments in your neighborhood or city and offer services to those who have a poor performance in social media but are in the process of building them.
Schools and car insurance companies, for example... a hamburger is legal for occasional jobs because they often won't have the resources to invest in you.
Detail: knowing the basics of social media can be a differentiator to add your work.
you are really good but the event sector in this pandemic is really complicated.

Hey man, I had a look at your portfolio, and you're doing great work!
I've been a designer for over 4 years now, and I've faced what you're facing too. Finding regular work is just rare unless you put in time to market your skills.

Try to get repeat business from past clients, and ALWAYS ask for referrals.

I'd suggest trying reddit, and also finding a niche, and learning new stuff (apply your skills in different niches).

I've learnt that a portfolio is only as good as the worst piece in it.
Cut out some of your older work, redesign the website if possible, and post more often in more places.

It only gets harder before it gets easier man, hope you feel better soon.

There very less amount of people who has luck.
Starters are very uncommon within them. What you need to do is grow skills and make yourself of great quality then hp into a marketplace for your niche then stick to it.
If you do you will see the next steps yourself. :)
