I Dont Make A Big Deal Out Of My Birthday

    I don't really think it's

    that important... Plus when I was younger nobody really have me big gifts and made that big of a deal about it so it's never really been something that I've made too big of a deal about.

    When I turned 15, I got my first piercing.

    ..that same evening, I lost a good childhood friend to a gun. He was raised in a foster home, the only reason I knew him was because his foster family attended the church my family did. He was this little chunky boy with spiked hair who absolutely loved to pick on me. He was...

    I still don't understand birthdays.

    All I did was be born, why do we have to celebrate that?

    I don't want to get older.

    I pretty much stopped aging at 17, I don't even look different.

    Today is my birthday

    and I don't care. When I was little birthdays were fun and I didn't have to worry about any responsibilities because I was young. I still had many years to worry about what my future goals might be. Now it just feels like another day of the week. You get up and go to work. Than...

    I wish I could do something ritualistic

    for my birthday like hike to the same tree in the forest and make a small mark on it every year. It's as pointless as our existence but it's these little things that get us through the aching void. I think on my birthday I will miss my hometown the most. I've been away from it...

    I couldn't care less about my birthday Christmas

    or anything else as it's something I learnt not to enjoy as I feel hurt and pain over how many years I had bad ones and how many of them was on my own or how people could not care less about me. so to me it's another day nothing special and I am happy that way I don't feel...

    And This Bothers My Mother

    My birthday is not a big deal. I have never liked birthday parties- not even as a kid, when birthday bashes were all the rage. My mom threw me a party a couple of years, but all it did was embarrass me and trigger my social anxiety. So she stopped.Now, I am 32 years old and will...

    I even always changed my birthday on social

    media. I onced celebrate it and it's not a good feeling i hope to get from my friend or family. So i celebrate my birthday alone with treating myself with stuff and cake. I know it's kind of sad but i feel comfort with this :)

    My birthday is in September,

    the beginning of the school year. Before anyone cares about birthdays yet. Plus I don't have many friends, so nobody knows it's my birthday. Ever.

    I did when I hit 18 and 21

    and wished for a bit more attention when I hit 40, but otherwise I don't care. It's just another day.

    So my birthday is tomorrow

    and what I had in mind for the day it won't happen and I don't think I ask that much I just wanted to spend the day out 😔. And what I say I didn't want is probably what is going to happen and that is a freaky BBQ (I like bbq it just that I don't feel like having one tomorrow...

    Uhh... It's basically a reminder

    that we are closer to our mortality. Nothing to celebrate about.

    I think it's kind of weird

    that I don't and I don't even remember why I started it. To be in a certain mood in my life, probably. But I'm on the cakes again, so bring the whipped cream and the marzipans! ;)

    I don't feel or think there's any need to make

    a big deal. That only draws attention to yourself and I don't need that attention.

    I'm not sure what the big deal over birthdays

    are. It is just another day. I appreciate the presents and parties for the effort they took, but to me, I'd be just fine without them. :)
