    It'll be my birthday in a few hours.

    I'm scared that i'll get lonely and then cry about it. I wish someone would throw a party for me.

    Twenty Eight is so strange

    for me. I've really had to come to terms with the fact that I am now a completely different person.

    I always make a big deal about how I want to be

    alone watching a movie on my birthday and I do but I expect people to come around. My last birthday, I cried. I expected people to visit and they didn't. it's not the not-coming that made me sad, it's the not-knowing. They simply forgot. My friend has still not remembered and I...

    Happy 40th to me. Alone.

    In a house full of people. Again. "I used to think that the worst thing in life was to end up alone. It's not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people who make you alone."

    This is seriously the worst birthday ever.

    Nothing tragic happened. I know for some, their birthdays could have been worst.. But... I think I deserve to be happy on my birthday. Cause after all it's my special day, it's the day I was born. But I really am not. It really sucks. Everyone wanna feel loved, that people kiss...

    Today is my birthday

    and it's the worst by far. Sure, I'm glad to be older, I guess, but I feel so lonely. Only a few people have wished me a happy birthday, including my family and a few of the faculty. The days leading up to my day of birth were the worst days of my life. A bunch of awful...

    A Solitary Birthday

    It always comes down to the luck of the draw. I feel ungrateful. I have everything to be happy about. Great shape, looks, great job, determination to succeed, and everything else that people tell me they wish they had. Whenever someone asks me how i'm doing, I always respond...

    My birthday was today.

    The only person who remembered was my mother "surprisingly" she tends to forget lots of things. Anyway, today not one song was sang to me, not one cake was brought to me, not one wish was given today. Rather I spent it romping around the house on my computer watching comedians...

    My Birthday is very special for me. My fiscal and emotional year begins on that day, not the 1st of January like so many other people. I've always done something special on my day with or without people, though it's always nice to be remembered. Like I wrote in the comments of...

    I Hate Birthdays...

    I find them so depressing and it reminds me of how alone I am. I am going to be 26 soon and feel freaked out that next year when I am 27, I will be considered as someone who is in their late twenties. Birthdays remind me that I am single, alone and very behind in life. I also...

    Is It Fair?

    No of course its not fair, i know life is unfair but this just makes me depressed, not even my family saying happy birthday to me just because of religion. Is it wrong to want to feel important? To feel like my birth was important to my family? To know i am desired by someone...

    Birthday Wish

    Spare me the temporary joy of receiving presents, it's the hope within a birthday wish that holds all importance. “Don’t tell people about your wish”, is what everyone says. Bad luck is irrelevant, they rarely come true for me anyways. I don't wish to have money, goodies...
