As you know from experience, our general mood vaies from day to day, hour to hour. ANd of course one may be unhappy rather than, or as well as, depressed.
You raise some very interesting points, though. Indeed, it sounds as though some of your issues are spiritual / existential, and a good and skilled psychotherapist ought to be able to help you with that, though I know that some are so down-to-earth they never seem to have had such doubts or thoughts themselves. Being unhappy, seeing the negative aspect of things, expecting the worst, and other such reactions to the variations of life, can become uncomfortable bad habits, and thats why I favour Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy, CBT, as a proven way to change negative habits of thought and feeling, towards more fruitful and positive interpretations of and responses to, events.
