Same thing happens to me, I always end up feeling sad and sorry for myself on my birthday. Hugs to you!
I think once we get older it's just another day. Chores shopping nothing special happens. I guess next year make it a day about you?!
Life is what YOU make it. Don't put your happiness in other people's hands. You should have organised what you wanted to do for your birthday. I always tell my husband this is what i want to do for my birthday. If i lefted it up to him i would be disappointed. Also I'm getting lots of negative from you...if you want to be happy you need to change that.
Sorry your day was bad. I get it, it's the day where people can show they are glad you were born. I hope you feel better today. Treat yourself.
I hate my birthday. On my 17th birthday my mum told all the boys that came over that I was sweet sixteen and never been kissed, and told them all they had to kiss me for my birthday. For my 18th I was living on the streets and met my father at a servo where he gave me a radio. My 21st I was 1 week overdue giving birth to my first child. My 30th I was told I needed a hysterectomy and my marriage broke down. My 40th I had gained 40kgs, had massive depression, and a surprise party with lots of photos. My 50th I did an adventure holiday and fell and broke my back. Birthdays suck.
I enjoy my birthday. I usually order takeaway or we go out for dinner so I don't have to cook. I'm not really in to big birthday parties or anything. We bought our first house a week before my 21st, and got our second house just before my 30th birthday, so that was celebration enough.
I agree completely! I spent my last milestone in tears. My hubby said 'so what are you gonna buy for yourself?' When he realised I expected a little more he ran out & bought me a $20 gift & now says he made amends, get over it. That's what really hurt me, tbh, and I can't forget it. All I wanted was something like an invite to meet him for lunch. Most of my friends/family forgot or sent a lame text.
For his, he had a party he expected me to organise.
The experience taught me a hard lesson - to put myself first (except for my kids). I don't want much, but I've finally learned to do/buy those things I really want without guilt and stop putting my wants or dreams behind everyone else's.
My Birthday is Christmas Day (really) so yes, I always enjoy my birthday
No! Its not just another day it should be a day when thepeople who care about you show it! I'msure you put effort into their birthdays. Women sacrifice so much for our loved ones and its not unreasonable for you to expect one day thats special.
Sending you a big hug and a toast with the finest champagne (that we probably can never afford, but who gives a f**k)!
Happy Birthday beautiful lady 🥂🍾🍾
I am disappointed before the day even starts. My birthday is on Christmas eve so I'm either cooking for the next day or stuck in a car for 6hrs. Yay for me! And it's during the busiest time for us. We have harvest on our farm so my husband is usually out working all day long.
I organise or tell people what I want to do so it’s always a great day and I’m never disappointed! Don’t measure your importance to others by whether they remembered your birthday or not cause people sometimes forget. Birthdays aren’t a big thing to some.
