Discuss your sadness: With a mental health professional to explore what your sadness is about & get a different perspective on it. If your depression is distressing, get exercise, engage in social interaction & engrossing activities, practice gratitude, do kind things for others, learn & practice stress management, develop & commit to meaningful goals, avoid negative thinking & comparisons with others. Focus on now.
