    You feel sad because that what you choose to feel in your hearts and mind. Its a psychological problem. Try not to think of those things that can make you sad or perhaps dont even think that you are sad.

    Hi there catz,

    Hope you are feeling ok today. You say that sometimes you are happy and sometimes sad, sometimes for no reason at all. Although this doesnt sound very nice, it's actually quite normal. Lot's of different things can affect our moods - including hormones (especially if you are going through puberty), pmt, how tired or stressed we are (feeling tired can make you emotional and more likely to have mood swings), if we have been drinking, or an emotional reaction to something you read or something on TV. It doesnt mean there is anything wrong with you - and there isnt always a reason why you feel sad. You might find it helpful to have a look at this article here - why am I in such a bad mood? - although the website is for the states - there's a good explanation of mood swings and suggestions for how to overcome them.

    We've also got an article on mood swings.

    It can be helpful to notice when you feel sad and think about whether there is anything external causing it - for example, are you tired or is it just before your period?

    It's also useful to think about things you like doing which can help you feel a bit better. For example, reading a book or magazine, watching a certain TV programme, doing some exercise or having a sleep. Often, once you start doing something, your mood can pass.
