I am depressed about turning 16 years old on Tuesday?

I'm depressed about turning 16 years old this coming Tuesday! My life isn't the way I imagined it would be when I turned 16. My two best friends moved away, and my sister (who's never there for me, even though she always claims "she loves me") can't come over to celebrate with me, so all I have is my parents and brother to spend the day with, no big fancy sweet sixteen party! And I don't even know what I want to do for my birthday, on top of THAT my family really doesn't have that much money, we have to budget. I'm so depressed about it all, what can I do to stop feeling this way?

It's just a birthday, big fancy sweet 16 party is alot of money that could go toward other things more important. You're depressed about 16, too funny. Imagine turning 35, 50 , 60. Stay young as long as u can, gettin gifts & spending money isn't everything u kno. Being young Is the best thing in the world

Live your life with what you have and whom you have. Thank God for your family. Enjoy turning 16. You don't need a fancy party to celebrate turning 16. Enjoy your presents. Enjoy it as it is.

Be grateful that you've seen 16 great years, and you have a family that loves and cares for you! I understand where you're coming from, best friends moving, and your sister not being able to make it to your birthday, but know that she still loves you with all her heart. Enjoy what you still have left of your youth! Hope you have a great birthday!

Thanks :) I will try to enjoy my birthday, and I am grateful for at least my family members who love me. I'll try to enjoy what I have left of my youth, too.

When I turned 16 I went to get a sub and went to school and came home.
I currently have 1 friend
There's only 4 family members where I live and haven't seen the rest of them for 3 years but I still remember what nice weather was outside that day.

I just turned 16 a few days ago... I didn't have a party either... But your only looking at the bad things... You can be depressed when you turn 55... But you still have lots of time to shape your life...

Awww :( I'm so sorry to hear that. All you can do is try to stay positive and make the best of it. My 16th b-day is in October. And I don't think mine will turn out to be as good as I thought it would be either. And my funny brother that I love so much won't be there to celebrate because he is leaving for the army in July. I feel like it won't be the same. Some other people have had worse birthdays, so sometimes I gotta try and be thankful. Happy Birthday to you! Remember; Try and make the best of it! :)
