Well, another year has passed in my life. Happy Birthday to Me. ๐Ÿค—

Let's have a chat about Birthday's in reference to depression and anxiety. Yikes ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ณ. I believe it's very relevant. There's great things about another year passing and things that go bump in the night so to speak lol that worry us. Is that normal?

I'm a bit afraid to grow older, are you? I think ahead and I think too much. I try to focus on the day ...each day as it comes. We all know it's hard.

I'm grateful for so much of the graces bestowed upon my life giving thanks to first & foremost dad & mom who are still here to celebrate all our lives together.

What do you wish for? How do you feel on your birthday?

Good topic, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY ๐ŸŽ‚๐ŸŽ‰

I am having to transition into a different mindset about birthdays as I grow older. I'm pleased to say it's working. First, that is the goal isn't it? Have as many birthdays as we can. Secondly, I think about those who didn't get the chance to have their ______ (fill in the blank with a number) birthday. Those thoughts bring me to a major feeling of gratitude. Anyone who's wondering, my last one was December. I became....gulp....60.

Exactly, as we get older we shift gears and our "mindset transition's"! That's what I mean "Gulp". ๐Ÿ˜ณ It's kind of scary isn't it or am I crazy? Lol yes a bit crazy indeed ๐Ÿ˜‰ and it's hard to put into words, however, I think you know what I mean big "gulp" ๐Ÿ˜Šโค๏ธ๐ŸŒˆ and we just can't fit all those candles plus 1 for good luck anymore without involving the Fire Dept ๐Ÿ”ฅ. Lol. Love your positive approach!! I'm working on getting there! ๐Ÿ˜Šโค๏ธ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒž๐ŸŒ›

I get an initial OMG ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿคฏ every year now, but this one was wicked. You're right it is scary. I'm getting better and better though at getting to that gratitude point. That kind of startlingly scary feeling now automatically pushes me to the thought of well, that's the goal. To keep stacking up birthday's and at that point I think about how lucky am to have the privilege of many others haven't gotten.

What brought me to it was of all things Facebook. I don't use it much anymore except for forums. However, a name came up of someone I had gone to school with. Didn't know her much. I had severe social anxiety and was mostly a loner as a kid. But, it was a small school and I remember her well. So I thought I'd see how life turned out for her. To my shock she'd passed away. So I scrolled down a bit and read some posts that sounded "off". Turns out she had bipolar disorder and was in a full blown manic phase. She did stabilize for a bit. Long enough to meet her first grandchild. Then apparently a severe depression ending in her taking her life. That hit me hard. We were the same age. I also have bipolar disorder. It's one of those, there but for the grace of God go I, moments. Though I've never contemplated that, I could identify with some of her manic posts. I realize how lucky I am to have come out the other side. Been stable (bipolar wise) for many years and expect to stay that way. It really made think differently about birthdays. I do wonder though if the...Gulp.....ever goes away. I doubt it somehow. ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚

I do hope you enjoyed your birthday ๐ŸŽ‰ Luna!โค๏ธ

i worked with a lot of mean selfish narcistic people at the college and my family- all expert critics all negative all destructive and condescending- i can think of at least ten people I would like to say happy birthday to that would shall I say,,,,,,,wish I hadn't said anything as I'm not educated or whatever I am I'm am just a lowly stall cleaner, ,,,,,,, despite being a coach for forty years and many skills.,,,,,

then I know of someone that fights for justice and fights to keep people away from needless rejection and labeling fights for everyone to have self worth and be valued and valued for who they are not who they are not or not read a book just by its cover,,,,,,

this person fights for dignity and self worth of others,,,,,when most people in this country shrink from a worthy cause and worthy fight,,,,,a needed fight for social justice

I am honored and very honored to know this person this social lionness who fights for justice ,,,,,,,,,and a flower who would not throw my happy birthday back in my face or be embarrassed that I said happy birthday to a nelson mandela type and reminded her

that this day is really

the celebration of her being with us

the celebration of her contribution

the celebration of her courage and how she improve our situation hour self worth

our not being abandoned ro thrown away

its our opportunity to stand up and say

what a huge loss our personal and professional lives woutd be

how devastated we truly would be

if u weren't here

exactly as u are today

personally my bias is that people improve with age including women

as real men

admire the person within

real men don't see women the way some are taught

real men see he person we could care less about wringkles or grey hair that

improver appearance and make people mORre interesting

not less

because that is how

real men feel and think

we are not boys

we valued the freighter who don't kicked people when they are down or vulenrale

we valued those who are leaders

we value those who fight the good fight

another year- > barely out fo high school to us lol

Happry birthday Luna chrild - just the beginning

look a all u contiruburte to aid and comfort

look what a huge hole there would be

without u

we celebrate your life your friendship your cointrugtuions and your commitment s


go girl

Birthdays remind us of where we are in life. If we aren't satisfied, they can be sad. But for everyone they should let us know we are still alive and have many blessings and happy time ahead if we can let go of what's bothering us. If you are young you will have time to make your dream come true or change it. List all all your blessings.

Happy Birthday. I recently had a birthday myself. Though mine is clouded by trauma and pain. I hope that you had a much better time than I did. And hopefully you got to have a lot of fun, got a lot of support and hopefully you were able to get in all the self care for yourself.

Thank you for your kind Birthday wishes. I'm sorry that you're birthday was clouded by trauma and pain. Maybe you could think about doing something nice just for yourself. My friends bring me lots of joy & peace so I've been doing some activities with them. Thank you for your kind wishes. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’ซ๐ŸŒž๐ŸŒˆ

Brig57 in reply to Brig57

part of the things that depress luna is she cant protect everyone - from harm from injustice - and because she cares sooo much - it hurts her when there is injustice and it eventually gets to her- makes her sad- why terrible things happen to good people - her people - the family and circle she cares about-

how can that be and why cant she prevent it and so forth

that is the heart of the heeler and protector of LC

Isinatra in reply to Luna_Child

Lol my brother has always been given a pass for giving special occasion greetings. Once he gave my mom a birthday present, unwrapped, in a crinkled brown paper bag. By her reaction, you would have thought it was in a blue box from you know where. ๐Ÿ’Ž๐Ÿ˜

Luna_Child in reply to Isinatra

Brothers and their wives...this is the first year I have not heard from my sister in law or brother. He has no pass. He's been breaking traditional holiday activities for 3 years now and it has nothing to do with Covid. He cancelled mother's day after years of traditional going out to eat. Our parents are still living and doing it well. He's backing off of holidays and now birthdays. I'm really hurt. He lives by her rules and always has. It's a dictatorship. They have 3 grown boys men now. Ones married with 2 nd baby and one is getting married next year and she and my brother totally dislike his Fiance. They say things about her in front of her so he moved in with her. The other lives at home and has a girlfriend. We lost a brother tragically through a motorcycle accident & a cousin. You'd think he'd smarten up. I'm his only sibling left. I feel like he's ousting me from his life.

As you said, brothers and their wives. Wives come first as long as they are together. You can bet, though, if they break up, heโ€™ll be knocking at your door with his hat in his hand. Be patient and give it time. โค๏ธโค๏ธ

Luna_Child in reply to Isinatra

Trying so hard. I haven't said anything to my mom or dad because they sent me a video and sang Happy Birthday at 630 am. before my dad left for church. We all live very close to each other. I don't blame my nephew's because she usually reminds them to send me a happy birthday text. My brother should be ashamed. A lot of us all thought my sister in law would change after her 2nd cancer battle which she almost lost. I was there every night and raced up when I got the call that she was given her last rites. She miraculously rallied, went through H*ll and spent 6 mos learning how to walk again in rehab and I see no gratefulness only a remark once " I don't think anyone else could've survived what I went through". So you're the only one with courage and strength to fight for your life?? Wrong girlfriend! (I didn't say it I thought it. ) I disagree not that you didn't fight and win but many others in this world fight Cancer and win.

Luna, may this new birth year be surrounded by love, laughter and an abundance of happiness ๐ŸŽŠ

Hey, sorry this is late. Happy Birthday!!!! I hope it was great!!! As for what I would wish for, well, there's a lot I would wish for but I also think it's important to just be grateful for the things you do have because things could always be worse. I know I get upset having to live with my parents these days and all that but it's a lot better than being homeless or being in some crazy adult group home, so I'm trying to be respectful towards them even though sometimes I feel like they're driving me insane. And I am very grateful for my sister that I do get along well with, as for the other one that is not so nice, I guess I'm grateful that we don't talk to each other too much, maybe that's for the best.

You are so right on track girlfriend Googoodollsfan Parents will drive you insane no matter how much you love each other. It's a given. I love mine to pieces and I live 2 min away by car..oh boy insanity because after all these years my mom still wants me to be like her, still criticizes the crap out of me and still wants me to chop my hair off. She doesn't understand it's not happening. I am who I am. You gave me an epiphany when you said you are grateful that you and the sister who's not so nice don't talk much as it's for the best. I've been struggling all my life with my oldest brother who's 6 years older than me who's whiplashed by his wife and we've become estranged. My middle brother and I were like best friends although sadly passed in a motorcycle accident with my cousin. I'm grateful for having him as long as I did. Thank you for helping me realize that it's ok that I'm not close with my oldest brother. Another good friend here said have no expectations. So true.

Thank you for responding and thank you for your birthday wishes and for being the lovely open honest person you are.

Hugs to you ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿ’œ


Thank you!!!๐Ÿ™‚
