I Am Not Looking Forward to My Birthday

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 53 People

    It's Just a Reminder That I'm Special, But Not That Special

    My family acknowledges my birthday and tells me the usual command, "Have a Happy Birthday!" But I hardly ever do. My husband asks me months in advance what I want for my birthday, every year I tell him I want to be with him intimately as much as I want for a whole 24...

    Not Really.

    Today is the 25th or April, my birthday is on the 30th, I've got 5 days left, and I'm not really that excited. So much has changed this year, and I'm very proud of myself for what I've accomplished. But it's just not me to celebrate my birthday, I don't know.. Could be what I've...

    My Birthdays

    Are always lonely, there's no party as I have no friends, and my manic depressive mother, well lets just say she regrets not getting an abortion. So my birthdays are usually filled with loneliness, being told to go kill myself by my mother, and those extremely long phone calls...

    I'm Gonna Be An Adult! Yay!

    Today my mum and I were talking and she was saying: your birthday is coming up!  Me with a boring voice: ha? Yeah it is! I guess I stopped getting excited about anything! :/  Now I know I’m going everywhere saying that I'm 21 but to be honest I haven't turned yet!  But I'm...

    I'm Turning 21

    My birthday is on 2-28. It's not really something I'm looking forward to. I don't drink and I could go out and party but it probably wouldn't be much fun for me. I don't have any girl friends or close friends in general, so I guess that'll make my birthday suck even more. But...

    Turning 21

    Between two groups of friends and my own family I will already be going to 3 different bars, 3 different ***** clubs, and 3 different casinos and I haven't even been asked what I want to do yet. I'm not sure why people get excited about turning 21. As far as I can tell it's...

    Especially Not This Next One.

    I am really not looking forward to my next birthday and as a rule I tried to let it slide by without to much notice. The next one, which is in a couple of weeks, will be one of the big ones, the dreaded 50. My wife has already started planning some big embarrassing thing for me...

    Not At All

    I am not looking forward to my birthday at all. I will be turning 19 on May 25th. I am not looking forward to it at all. No one will remember it at all, No one has and no one will.   It is also my Mother's birthday. It is Just a day I am not looking forward to.

    My birthday is in 2 days.

    I haven't really done anything for my birthday in years. I wish I had friends to celebrate with. I wish I had a reason to be happy about another year of life. I hate being alone on my birthday.
