Birthdays. Something literally everyone has. We all enjoy them from the birthday parties to the excuse to indulge in cake and ice cream. And who can forget the presents!
Birthdays, an entire day dedicated to your existence and your ability to survive each year. Pretty good reason to celebrate if you ask me. It’s wonderful to celebrate a birthday and realise you survived on this earth for 365 days more each time.
But eventually birthdays become just another day as we grow older and it’s like no one cares. All the attention we once got on this day eventually fades and it’s like no one remembers.
I know of some people whose birthdays stop becoming a big deal to family and friends. I know that this is personal decision to stop the celebrations but imagine how that person must feel.
No more cake, ice cream, celebrations for your existence. It almost like your underappreciated and no one cares if you live or die.
So I was wondering, is this the norm? Are we all subjected to our birthday becoming “normal” days in the eyes of others?
