I am 23 today and I’m feeling a mild birthday depression
1) It has nothing to do with getting older
2) I was congratulated by the people I care about
3) I feel lonely even though I purposely didn’t make any plans with anyone except for having dinner with parents (I even turned down an invitation from a friend)
4) I don’t usually feel this way so whenever I do it kind of hits harder
I just kind of feel confused and lonely and exhausted

I guess it normal. I usually feel blue on my birthday too. But if these feelings persist, you need to figure out the root cause. Is it because you were expecting something? Is it because you feel you have something you want to do but still haven’t done? There could be many explanations. Find out what’s bothering you and figure yourself out. Wishing you a very happy 23rd birthday❤️
P.S.: we are the same age
umm, 1) happy birthday
I’ve been trying to get away this year, this birthday depression is so real. I turn 22 and I want to take a solo trip but I don’t know if that’s safe or even possible for a girl in India.
This birthday depression strikes me every year. I have seldom enjoyed the day of my birthday. It’s getting worse with age…we’re just getting older, nothing fun. The dilemma is…I want to be alone and then I feel lonely. I relate to you 100%, and this couldn’t have come at a better time, my birthday is around the corner and these are my exact same thoughts. Don’t know what to do…?
