Why do people listen to sad songs when they're sad?

I've listened to many sad songs until last year when I was dealing with lot of stuff. Heartbreak, betrayal, alone (away from loved ones), etc.. You name it. But what I realized was after some time is that it does not make me feel better at all. It made me feel even more miserable than ever. 😕 So, I avoid listening to them and prefer to hear some happy or some soothing songs instead.

Do you actually feel better when you listen to sad songs or do you feel worse than ever like I do? Those who prefers to listen to some sad songs even though it doesn't help- Why do you guys/girls do it?
