8 reasons why birthdays suck

1. You’re expected – ok, no one actually expects anything – but it’s assumed – that you’re happy on your birthday! “Hey, it’s your birthday, smile, be happy, time for some CEL-UH-BRATION!!”

So if, for some reason, or no reason at all, you’re not in the best of your moods; you end up feeling awkward and bad. Because hey, you can’t not be happy on your birthday.

2. There’s a lot of pressure of making the day special. How’s it so special if you’re fussing and worrying over it for weeks before the “D-Day”?

3. It puts a hell lot of pressure on your best friends, too. No one wants their birthday to be a reason of tension for their besties, right?

4. It’s way overrated. It’s OKAY IF YOU HAVE A NOT SO HAPPENING BIRTHDAY, OKAY? It doesn’t mean you’re a sad person, or you don’t know how to have fun, or anything. It doesn’t mean ANYTHING if you don’t have a nice birthday. It’s just a day, for gods sake.
You cannot expect a day to be more than a… Day. You know?

5. Almost everytime, you dream of a perfect birthday, and you wait for it for 12 months, and when it arrives, all the excitement just kinda dies down. It’s just anti-climatic from there on. All in all its just a frustrating routine.

6. How much ever you “grow up” you’re still a kid from the inside. So ageing just increases the gap between your inside self and your outside age definitive self. And that just freaks you out. (It freaks me out, at least)

7. And then, when it ends, you’re like.. Is this it? Is this what the fuss was all about? Just 24 hours of.. Celebration (which doesn’t so much feel like celebration)?

Hmm.. Maybe next time it’ll be better.

8. Only, it won’t.

…Sorry for making birthdays sour for you (if it wasn’t already). I like celebrating my friends’ birthdays, just, not mine. Because.. Well, you know why.

Anyway, how do you feel about birthdays?

    Well they tell you to be smiling because for whatever reasons u r unhappy at least for a day forget the sadness ..live wonderful moments .
    Well we have lot of other days like father day mother day sister day women’s days this day that day.. So why so much enthusiasm about it on that particular days ?? Can’t we celebrate every day as this day.?? Similarly bday..people feel speacial about themselves.. Atleast love themselves on that day if not everyday . why do u want to stop people from making efforts in making u feel wonderful.. ??
    Yes although we are ageing if for a day at least if u feel kid inside.. Isn’t it a good thing..
    OK now positive one u would like.. No body blames u or gets angry on u on that day ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Have fun shubs.. Yake tension

    Though I agree more or less with your idea, I love the fuss about birthday and the gifts! I’ll spend whole lot of time in trying to give a good gift that make them smile heartily, even for a fraction of second…
