Last year after ending up in a serious funk when no one acknowledged my birthday I took things into my own hands.

I relocated a few years ago and have made a few connections locally, but none are particularly close. I have no family left, and my friends all live multiple time zones away from where I am now.

So I emailed two of my closest friends, whose birthdays I routinely acknowledge on the day, and who always seemed to "forget" when mine was. I sent them step-by-step instructions on how to set up a reminder in their Gmail calendars for my birthday.

Then I told them that I didn't want gifts or even cards, just for them to spare the 10 ****ING SECONDS it took to text two simple words on the day. Just as I had been doing for them over the years.

Whether you are surrounded by family and friends or totally alone, your birthday is the one day on which your existence as an individual on this earth can be acknowledged. Holidays and other celebrations are usually collective things - but unless you share a birthday with a close friend or family member, that day is about you as a person, and not as a being in relation to others.

OP, I hope that you do something to treat yourself on the day, and that you can perhaps set up a similar arrangement (i.e., reciprocal acknowledgement) with a few others in your life - if for no other reason than that it's in the interest of your mental health.

The irony in your statement is laughable. Love sure there was a time when I thought love was possible. Now I know it's impossible for most to even understand what it is, they have a ton of really ignorant contrived adages they throw around in a lame attempt to disprove love all over.

Hey do not let my life and the anger that that comment was conveying be a reason to concur with an absolute moron. I had only made he mistake of thinking it was in my life twice. Sorry it was enough to change my opinion, that's for me and my life experiences. Maybe you will be someone others can hold in a love value of some sort or of some look. I am just too whatever, I always seem to be too this or too that to be in love or be lovable. Ok fine I am who I am if that's not good enough to love then fuck you I don't want their love because it's a pseudo spoken word and in understanding in their case anyways. I want pure, I want real and I want don't have to change to love me. That would 100% come if I could feel like someone fucking got what love is a gift that will change you and your life like it or not for the much better if you embrace it and for the much worst should you deny or fear it.
