Since I don't know : You - i can't say. However, if your quality of life is poor and you often feel down - it is worth a psychological evaluation. This can help to determine if you have a depressive disorder that needs treatment. Even if it is more of an issue of attitude, that can be addressed through cognitive behavioral therapy. Take care.

Many possibilities: If you're "sad mostly, " it's time to see your doctor. Sadness is an emotion all of us feel from time to time, often in response to loss of some kind. But if it's your predominating feeling about life in general, you could be suffering from depression. This condition involves sad mood, loss of interest in usual activities, ; changes in sleep, energy, ; appetite. Help is available!

Some people do: It is sad if no one to spend holidays with. Sometimes holidays are associated with loss of a loved one. Holidays can be very stressful also because of the additional responsibilities, things people need to do to "celebrate.".
A 51-year-old male asked:

Why is it everytime I go shopping after i'm done buying I feel sad? Is this normal

Not really: I'd need to know more about what is happening to be able to provide a complete response. But, if you're feeling sad after shopping you're thinking about something that is making you sad. Questions: what are you thinking about the shopping that is making you sad? Buyer's remorse? Financial matters? Failure to find what you were looking for? Then, what are you telling yourself to promote sadness?
