Because you didn't choose to "just" be depressed! No one asks to feel this way.... and really, I wouldn't want it for anyone...

Time plays a very significant role here. Maybe you are overthinking or being upset about holding your feeling for too long...just calm down and give it some time u will be able to overcome it

This is something you need to explore more. There may be certain stresses in your life that you are unaware of at the moment causing you to feel unhappy.

You haven't found what you want in life. If you've already sought help, maybe antidepressants or therapy if you think you are depressed, then you need to find what actually makes you happy. Try some new hobbies. Meet new people. Try to find your goal in life and your career aspirations and find something to work towards.

Happiness is a state of mind. Often times we neglect the root cause of our unhappiness. If we can figure out that by talking to others about it. Or reconnecting with old friends. We can feel relieved and happy.

Happiness is difficult to achieve. The world around us and the thoughts in our minds can sometimes stop us from being happy. However, doing things you enjoy and reaching out for help can help you take a step towards happiness.

because you're thinking that you're not happy, change it for a bit, think about why you're not sad,

Humans are not living beings that tend to actually feel happy all the time. When there is nothing that makes you happy, you just don't feel happy. Occupy your self in a calm & relaxing environment, and do something that you really like, and achieving it makes you happy. Relaxation is the first step to happiness.

Because something is keeping you in a "lake" of negativity. Find the reasons, analyze them and see if you have any solution. Sometimes, the only solution may be giving up to think at that issue.

Happiness has to come naturally, you can't force happiness. To be happy you have to relax, relief stress, calm, and be comfortable.

Because you have a lot of thoughts in your mind. You should clean there from them. and start again safely.

You may have depression or it could just be a low point right now but you may want to get checked to see if you have depression because it can be very dangerous and hard to cope with

Happiness isn't found in some big moment that changes your life forever. It's not dramatic and awe inspiring. Happiness is thinking, "wow, those clouds are pretty" instead of, "wow, it's so cold today". Nobody is happy 100% of the time, you just find it where you can and you Appreciate it.
