What I don't like about birthday

The short and delightful version : A Very Merry Unbirthday to You! (yes, you)

Social pressure

People forcing you, by social expectations, to be in one state of mind : happy. Happy for what? Because you were born X years ago? Year being a human construct what does it actually mean?

Being "special" per obligation

One day per year your are suppose to be the center of your social world, nowadays cold your "social network". Why not be it by "merit" instead of social conventions?


You are either in the norm or not. If you are not, each and every year you give the same old explanations why you are not in the norm and this to every single person who believe that being in the norm is "natural" thus unquestionable.

In the spirit of Seedea and moving forward by not repeating even what is personal, Ill just clarify this once and for all (to eventually change my mind).

I apologize if you have been redirected here and find it very rude of me to do so but by this present text I am just trying to share my own personal point of view on this topic that was important enough for you to spend time on me.

Materialistic display of appreciation

  • present scheme

An excuse for...

  • being nice, show appreciation, etc.

Anyway, what can I do about it?

  • Clarify it for me here to be clear about it for next year.
  • Having a moving fake birthday date.
