Being happy doesn't mean to have a smile on your face 24/7, it means to find joy in life more often than sadness. Don't force yourself, it can make you feel the contrary, make you more gloomy. You can try to find happiness by adding more pleasant things to your routine, just little things you enjoy that can make your life a little bit happier. Eliminate toxic friends from your social circle, this one can be hard, but slowly, if they are truly toxic, they will not really care that now you are not their friends. Crying is also a good way to not bottle up feelings, if you need to cry, let it out!
