I am dreading my birthday

It's not about getting older, I don't care about that. I just don't like how phony birthdays feel and don't like unwanted attention or being showered with gifts. It makes me feel awkward. I am hoping nobody remembers it this year. I don't like holidays either for the same reason. Especially Valentine's Day.

Is It Normal?

  • Maybe you could do something to give back on your birthday, a sort of private celebration that you’re still alive and contributing to the world?

  • The unwanted attention only bothers me if it's coming from coworkers. If my friends or family want to shower me with gifts, I'm all for it, and I want them to dial the phoniness up to a thousand.
