Provided that feeling sad is not slipping into unable to cope or function then it can be OK.

If something sad has happened then feeling sad is a reasonable response. Sometimes, acknowledging and feeling an emotion is the best way of dealing with it.

Most people are so scared of feeling sad but it's a perfectly reasonable and healthy emotion. Sometimes I need a day of wallowing and it does me the world of good- if I fight the feeling I end up feeling much worse for much longer.

Accept the feeling, and it will pass. Make sure you look after yourself.

Life can be overwhelming, hope you feel better soon Flowers
