I Dont Really Enjoy Birthdays

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 217 People

    Bye Bye

    I used to enjoy my birthday! When it was celebrated that is. The truth is I haven't had a birthday party since I was 13, my dad won't let me have birthday parties anymore because my grades aren't spectacular. I miss my birthday, since I hardly ever get to hang out with my friends...

    Birthdays Suck

    i hate birthdays and usually avoid them if i can. The day always feels so insignificant and pointless and it never feels good to know that you are now a year older

    Its Sad

     This was the 2nd year that I had to work to really enjoy my birthday. I mean I had to constantly remind myself to smile and be happy with what was going on around me, instead of staring off into space and letting sadness take hold of me. Yeah I had fun sometimes but, I don...

    This Year's Was a Let-down...

    Yeah, it's my 16th birthday today-woo hoo. Go Sam, right? I really didn't care. I hate drawing attention to myself in that sense of the word, so I just woke up and attended to life as usual. But still, an itsy-bitsy, absolutely miniscule part of me still wanted a good day. Bad...

    Not Really

    I understand the appeal of birthday hoopla- the celebration of one's birth, giving thanks to the universe for making your existence possible, etc. I think birthdays for some people are an excuse to party hard or spend time alone and pamper themselves. Those are great ideas, and...

    Another Year Bites The Dust

    I always feel rather ambiguous about the whole birthday thing, but September 11th just keeps sneaking back every damn year. Now I'm a greedy ************, so I do love bleeding my family of their hard-earned money in the form of useless trinkets. My birthday hasn't even arrived...

    Do Not Want

    As an assignment in high school I was asked to write my own obituary. I wrote that I died on my 21st or 22nd birthday. Obviously I didn't die but I have to believe that it has seriously hindered my ability to enjoy my birthday(s). I also don't feel like my birthday should be...

    My Birthday Is My Gift To Myself

    Still Hoping For Something Great

    I never really enjoyed my birthdays except during my 7th birthday when my parents threw me a huge party with 100 guests at a banquet hall. Other than that, my birthdays were mostly held at home and as always, my mom would always get angry. She always gets angry if it's my...

    Blah

    I have cried every single birthday I have ever had! When I was younger it was because my brother would go out of his way to ruin it for me - just like he ruined everything else, I wasn't allowed to feel happy or special! Then as I got older I simply grew used to dreading them...

    Whoop Di Doo

    I've never had a terribly exciting or fun birthday. I don't know why. They've just always been boring. And more often than not, i find myself crying on my birthday, for one reason or another. Next year is 2-0 so maybe i can make that one a better one!?!

    Birthdays Are Depressing

    Tomorrow is my birthday and I'm feeling depressed. I hate birthdays. Who wants to be reminded that they are getting old. With every birthday I am reminded about how close I am getting to the big 3-0. I can't believe I am this old. Where did time go. One day I was attending my...

    Why Should I

    I don't like my own birthdays, cos i don't really want to be celebrated for ageing, i'd rather be celebrated for something i tried to do, if at all. I try and enjoy other peoples birthdays, and usually do a pretty nice job too, but i'm happy that the attention is focused there...

    I never really enjoy my birthday

    because I never have money to do what I really want. My birthday is in about a week and I'm honestly thinking of committing suicide. I have a feeling I will be alone on my birthday. I've been so depressed that I don't even want to celebrate my birth.

    I hope they could remember my birthday

    and whenever they ask me celebrate birthday for them it always remind me of that day when they don't even really care. And I really treasure them as my friends and I always wonder how important or significant I am to them.

    Technically, I Loathe Them

    I have no idea why people celebrate a purely physiological process like the birth of a child.A male and female Homo sapien mate, and produce a young Homo sapien. So what? Thousands of other mammals do that all the time. What's there to celebrate? Of all creatures, we, the...
