Sadness and negative emotions affect us all, and are natural and healthy to express when felt. But if these feelings are persistent, this could be a sign of depression. Depression is a prolonged state of negativity, with a loss of motivation to engage in activities previously enjoyed. This may result in feelings of emptiness and hopelessness, and self esteem could also be negatively affected. Overall mood can become very low, and if left untreated, may lead to worsening of symptoms.

Negative emotions are responses to the trials and tribulations of life, and many people go through periods of low mood. But when these feelings are sustained and difficult to cope with, this is the time to seek help.
