is it normal to just feel sad for no reason?

ok well sometimes out of nowhere i will feel really sad and i will feel like the rest of the day or maybe even more than a few days, and i dont feel like doing anything at all. And sometimes i even feel like i like my friends less and want to hang out wiht them less. stuff like that. i mean i get this alot like im not sad constantly every hour of every day but i get really sad alot and it lasts for a short while but the thing is it happens several days a week not everyday but most days and its usually only for a few hours. i dont knjow whats going on but im confused because its changes the way i feel about my boyfriend, and my friends, and my family, and my life. i have no idea whats going on. Like earlier i just didnt feellike talking to my boyfriend on the phone which i usually love to do, and sometime i dont even feel like hanging out with him or my friends, its wierd, when i get like this i dont love anything anymore, i dont love my friends, my boyfriend, anything...

Update:

well i have seen a psychologist before and it did help but another thing is yeah i have been like this my entire life, and its always on and off like this which is really wierd............do you think its depression?

    I used to feel this same way, so I researched it on my own and came up with my own conclusion. Think about it like this: Say that a kitten is taken in by a mother dog. The kitten is obviously misplaced, by nature, but after the kitten is grown a little more, it feels right at home with it's adopted brother and sister puppies. The kitten had become so used living with dogs, like a dog, that the kitten wouldn't feel as comfortable with cats, despite how much cat-friendly a family of cats would be. Human emotions are very similar. When a person is sad for an extended period of time, that person becomes comfortable with feelings of sadness. But even though there's no reason to feel sad, these people would rather stay in their own comfort zones, and remain sad. When I found this out, I was a little annoyed with myself, that I could fall victim to my own fear. A fear of being happy. That's no way to live, you know? Listen to some happy songs and look at your life. imagine all of the good that you have. Maybe it's that you have a warm home, or a loving boyfriend, or trustworthy friends, or anything else, really. Look up some funny jokes and let yourself laugh. Just let yourself get used to happiness, it'll all be ok. Sometimes I still find myself listening to a sad song even when I'm not sad. Sometimes, we all need and escape to the deepest parts of our own comfort, just don't be afraid that feeling other things will fail. I think that this starts with being shot down for something. Maybe you asked somebody out and they said no, or you were turned down in a job interview too many times, or anything. This tells us, subconsciously, that being hopeful results in failure. While is certainly not that case. Hope I helped.

    Sad For No Reason

  • 4 years ago

    I've had bulimia, depression and anxiety but i take pills for them now, it can get like that if not treated properly.

    If you're in a teen state of mind then it's normal but you should consider seeing someone anyways

    Most teens that expierence it will grow out of it but some don't and it gets really bad.

    It can also run in families. My mom, two sisters and brother have all been depressed.

    No, I don't thinkneed it is depression. I had something like that so I searched it up.

    I feel the same way as you do. I've talked to a school counselor, and she said that I show strong signs of depression and social anxiety. Not saying you are, but it may be something you want to look into.

    I use to feel the same exact way. Then I discovered reiki .... Seriously ... No joke, I know it sounds like a load of crap but try it.... First session I felt such a huge shift I started crying.

    Try it, you don't need to live with that hovering feeling that something always feels wrong

      Yes! I took the first class for Reiki. Not only did it help my depression funks but my anxiety as well.

    read jokes online, listen to fast paced dance music, get caught up in funny youtube videos. This really helps. Otherwise force yourself to go out on a solitary run and you'll feel much better.

    it might be SAD, Seasonal Affective Disorder, or some other type of depression. These are all side affects of SAD, you should go see a doctor or a therapist.
