    I believe you should neither get too much happy nor too much sad in any kind of situation in life. You should remain neutral all the time.

    Please check my sentences.

    Re: I believe you should neither get too much happy nor too much sad in any kind of s

    We use "too much" before uncountable nouns. "Happy" and "sad" are not nouns.

    I would change "get" to "be".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: I believe you should neither get too much happy nor too much sad in any kind of s

    You could, for example, write about too much happiness or too much sadness. Neither phrase would fit in your sample sentence though.
    I am not a teacher.

    I believe you should neither be happy nor sad in any kind of situation in life. You should remain neutral all the time.

    Re: I believe you should neither get too much happy nor too much sad in any kind of s

    But what to use in place of "too much" then? Because I want to say that you should be happy but there should be a limit to that. You should be sad for the things that make you sad but up to some extent only.

    Now you've deleted 'too' before 'sad'.
