    Welcome to the forum, THAI-ESOL.

    It is not natural English. You cannot be sad to people.

    Re: are being? I have a gramma problem

    Is it an attempt to say 'It seems to me that you are sad'...?

    Re: are being? I have a gramma problem

    Or 'It is sad that you are behaving towards me in this way'...?
