Hi

To be honest birthdays can make me feel down too. I’m not sure exactly why,maybe something to do with looking back a bit and reflecting,or the coming of age, or the fact that mostly people are happy on their birthdays, so there are expectations of us...I have felt down in birthdays too...

I do hope you can manage some peace for the rest of this day 🌺🌼🌺🌼🌺🌼 sending gentle hugs xx

Sending positive thoughts your way!! Maybe try to find something that makes you happy today, even a small thing like a song you like, or a TV show, indulge in a treat you normally wouldn't (for me it would be a Friendly's Reese's Pieces Sundae!) or just doing something you enjoy for a few minutes to help offset these feelings. Sometimes that helps snap me out of it when nothing else will!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I wish there was a way we can all meet up to throw bday parties for each other 😂!

I don’t feel good on my bdays either. Makes me feel lonely even though I’m not :/ and plus I hate being center of attention.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

Happy birthday!!!

I'm sorry you're having an anxiety filled day. Try to treat yourself to something nice. I hope you get some rest and feel better.

Love and light to you ❤

I get that feeling on my birthday too. For me I think it’s because birthdays normally are associated with gatherings, being happy, centre of attention; all this is hard when anxious. Plus change in routine. Hope it gets better for you :) and happy birthday

Try thinking about something you enjoyed yesterday. Maybe write about it.
