Hello! I sent payment but left default transaction fee and my payment hasn't been processed yet (its well over month now). I use Bitcoin Core 2 version v0.15.1 (64-bit). For some reason its impossible to increase the transaction fee. I don't know what to do now ;/ will the transaction be canceled over time and my btc returned? Can I cancel it somehow? Thank you!

You can remove this transaction (and all other unconfirmed transactions) from your wallet. Let me quote myself to safe typing:
You can manually remove the transactions from Bitcoin Core:
-Exit Bitcoin Core
-Backup your wallet.dat, even though you should have a backup already, make another backup
-Start Bitcoin Core from a command prompt with options -zapwallettxes -rescan (if you're using a pruned wallet, you can't use this)

Depending on your hardware, it will take a few hours to rescan. After this, your transactions should be gone, but Bitcoin Core might pick them up from mempool again. In that case just wait for it to drop again.

Full description of the commands:
Code:
  -zapwallettxes=<mode>
       Delete all wallet transactions and only recover those parts of the
       blockchain through -rescan on startup (1 = keep tx meta data e.g.
       account owner and payment request information, 2 = drop tx meta
       data)
Code:
  -rescan
       Rescan the block chain for missing wallet transactions on startup

Weird... I have never had any problems with Bitcoin Core's latest automatic calculation of the recommended fee, even when the blockchain was spammed at it's highest capacity. The fee was big, but the transaction when through, it didn't certainty get stuck.

Could you post the tx id for some research? I want to see at what point it happened and the transaction details.

it's already confirmed at the time you posted your reply
do you still not see it confirmed in your wallet and processed on the receiver side?
