dispirited

Dispirited means being down in the dumps or depressed. Losing his girlfriend and job on the same day could make someone dispirited — feeling gloomy and absolutely miserable.

You could describe people who are dispirited as having no "spirit." Whether they've broken up with someone they loved or failed to get a promotion they've been working hard to earn, they feel sad, blue, and lack any sort of enthusiasm.
