    It is my birthday today,

    and I just feel so empty. I hid from my mother to cry earlier because I feel so empty and alone. I don't know what to do with my life, and don't really care, what difference does it make? I do not understand why people do it, even if I live a life full of joy what is the point...

    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...

    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...

    Though my birthday hasn't happened yet,

    I really want to get something off my chest. My boyfriend planned an awesome night out for my birthday, which falls on a Saturday. We don't live near all our close friends, so he invited the ones who live in the same city. Last night, we went out to dinner with a few of them...

    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...

    I Used To, But Not Anymore!

    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...

    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...

    I thought last year was bad,

    but today is looking even worse. I know I'm older so birthdays shouldn't matter, but it really sucks to never be appreciated or celebrated. Whoopee. Not.

    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...

    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."

    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...

    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...
