Ljak sadness is appropriate given many situations in life, such as, divorce, death, loss of employment, and general loss of what was dear to us. The sadness is transitory and passes in time, and one usually has intermittent times during the sadness period where your mind isn't constantly consumed with your troubles. Most are able to carry on their daily responsibilities and managed sadness. If however, you are sleeping long hours and find yourself unable to function with normal daily tasks it is likely your sadness has become depression and a healthcare provider may offer you assistance.

Most people are indeed busy with their own lives, however generally speaking, those who love and are concerned about you will undoubtedly take the time to listen if you engage them, and let them know you're experiencing difficulties. People are unable to read your mind, and may often not notice your body language indicating you are having problems. Is your sadness related to a recent incident in your life?

Salam,
sadness is probably the right reaction to many things we see around us happen on a daily basis. Each individual has different level of strength to deal with sadness. Those of us that are more sensitive and weak, it can be difficult to cope. It is helpful to talk to different people and learn from their experiences to determine what works best for you.
When I get sad, really sad, in the quiet hours of the night when wife and kids are asleep, I get up wash myself (Wudu), pray a few rakahs, open the Quran. Read a few pages, close it, open at another location, read a couple of pages. I cannot remember if it had not worked once. Try it, I hope it works for you, inshaAllah.
