      Sadness is an appropriate emotion when there are reasons for most of the persons to be sad in that particular situation. However, when sadness is inappropriate and excessive to the situation; it could be a sign of depressive disorder. sadness alone does not suffice for depressive disorder though. You would need an assessment by the specialist to discuss it further.
