I hate my birthday. - August 5th 2015, 06:24 PM

For my whole life, since I could realize it, my birthday has embarrassed me and depressed me. I have always felt guilty that people celebrate my birthday. I don't like a big deal made of it, and I want it to be ignored. I wish I could not even remember my own birthday because it depresses me so much. It's just a horrible reminder that I'm alive and have to go through birthdays. It's not about turning a year older, it's simply that I'm reminded that I'm alive and people are supposed to celebrate that? It's confusing and depressing. I've never had a birthday party with other kids (My mom always wanted to do it for me, but I never let her). It's always a small get together with my immediate family. Still, I hate it and it makes me so sad and I usually end up crying that day.

Does anyone else feel like this? Again, it's not about getting older. It's all depressing that I'm alive and people want to celebrate that. I hate it. I hate being here and having birthdays.

I completely understand what you mean. I don't have many loved ones and am very low in the friend department, so I used to hate my birthday, as it was a painful reminder of my situation. Today, it's really just another day to me, with the only real thing going on is going out somewhere with my sister to do something. But that is essentially how I treat my birthday - as just another day.

Lack of friends or just places where to have party, or low amount of cash to do any party. Whichever way, try online dating sites to get more friends (if 18+). Then clubs. Get a friend or two, hang out. Then a job when school over. You'll start loving the parties, believe me. I'll head back to our birthday party now. See ya..

I know how it feels. I spend every birthday alone now, unless pizza counts as company.
