Treatment?: Is there something going on with your life or is this how you felt all your life and it bothers you now? I suggest you talk to a counselor, psychologist and take things from there.

Get some help: There are a number of possible explanations for your unhappiness. It would be good to discuss this right away with your doctor/therapist. You might have a depressive disorder that could be treated with psychotherapy (such as cognitive-behavioral therapy) and/or medications. Feeling sad all the time is a problem that can be successfully addressed with professional help.

Sadness: Sadness is a frequent symptom in depression, but I don't assume a diagnosis. Recommend you see a good Psychologist for full history taking. Sadness is part of grief, but can become a problem if it impairs your ability to enjoy life. Don't give up-there are effective therapies and effective meds(not addictive). If you feel suicidal or self harm please call 1-800-784-2433 hotline if you feel urgency

Impossible to know: There are many, many reasons why a person may feel sad. It is impossible for someone who has never met you to say what it is. If you are sad much of the time, or it is very severe, please see a mental health professional in person to get help. Take care.
