Is not being happy really other words be being sad? One could be angry instead of happy.

I think its not "not being happy", rather being unhappy, which translates to sad. I don't know if it depends on the culture, but it seems perfectly natural to me that unhappy/sad is the exact opposite of happy.

I think that "unhappy" can be indifferent also, if it refers to something, as “I am not happy with it, neither sad, it just does not matter to me”.
