Sadness and depression
Feeling sad is an indication that there is something wrong in your life that you have to pay attention to. Feeling the intensity of sadness depends on the situation that a person is in. Some are light, some are mild, and some are intense.
Sadness is an emotion similar to the rest of emotions that we experience from time to time. The problem arises however when sadness lasts for more than a few days as it could turn into depression if we are not careful and let it continue in our lives. You can read more about this in my book “How to overcome worry and have peace of mind.”
