Today was my birthday, and no one even acknowledged it .. Do I say anything or just cry in a corner?

This is the second year it's happened with my family and when I tell my mum, she says I'm too old for birthday wishes or anything. . but she does them for my 25, 23, 22, and 9 year old siblings.. I feel ... eh.. not very special ever. I'm 16 now.

Maybe they are waiting to surprise you! If not then that is so messed up and I am so sorry you feel this way.

Happy birthday!!
Did you have a good day?
I hope you did :D
And don't worry, the only persons to tell me happy birthday to me on march were my two brothers, my mom, and my grandparents who gave me 100$. Nobody at school, and not even my dad, whom I live with.

Have you tried telling her? Maybe celebrate her birthday if you want her to celebrate yours. And always know even if she doesn't celebrate your birthday she loves you and the day you were born was the best day of her live.

Ask people when their birthdays are, so it will be relevant when you say "mine is September 3rd". You can't do it any other time cause it'll be conceded. Saying "My birthday is September 3rd, by the way" make people think you are reminding them or expect something big, makes you look arrogant

Well first of all HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
And second of all I do think as you get older you shouldn't care as much about your b-day. Don't get me wrong i love the attention as much as the next guy, but as you get older you should try not expect gifts. Me and my friend have the same birthday (this Thursday) and all of my friends remember its his birthday but not mine, and his parents are throwing him a party and all ill be get is probably money,and im happy im getting that.

No excuse for your family to omit your birthday celebration. I cannot believe they did that. That is completely unacceptable! I hope you can make plans with some friends, even if it has to be on another day, let them celebrate you in a special way! I'm so sorry your family is screwed up!!! Let it make you stronger, not bitter or rigid, but kinder, more aware of what such cruelty can do to others. You can use this to lift yourself up, what they do or don't do is their problem, and karma will get them in the end! Happy Birthday, Sweetie, I'm sending you hugs and high fives!!!

Hi Toots! I was rather cross with Bull tonight, but I'm really tired of people, even with good intentions, telling me I'm wrong to believe what I believe. Sorry, I know he means well, but he's not the all-knowing God who guides each of His children in the perfect path. Whew! You didn't ask for that, did you? You are so sweet and gentle, the world so needs people like you! How are you?

Happy birthday to you! 16 is certainly a big one. At least here in the US, not sure where you are, most kids go for their drivers license. As a mom, I could never forget my kids birthday! So strange but don't let it get you down! Celebrate with your friends!

Happy Birthday!!! I'm sorry that happened. It really sucks that your family didn't even notice. Same thing happens to me almost every year with my dad. When I turned 15, my dad didn't even call me (he doesn't live with us). I'm pretty sure he doesn't actually know how old I am. My advice would be to make some friends who wouldn't ignore your birthday, and invite them to a birthday party.

Wearing a sandwich board the day before that reads, "Wish me a Happy Birthday and buy me stuff!" does not let people the chance to express their way of sharing your birthday, neither does curling up and crying. Even if you feel like it, for many years. Then just have fun and express what you want to do that day. Like, let's go see this movie, get a sundae and find a random new store to look at crap for a hour...

Allow yourself and the day to move forward.

Doing one or two small things that are important to you lets others plan stuff that include you. Tell your mother, "I'm hanging out with Friends for the afternoon on my Birthday!~" gives her a chance to plan a meal or buy you a gift. She may want time to herself, too. We all need time to have fun, on our birthdays, as well as others.

So, cry for two minutes, and then face the fact that you are moving forward. And, push yourself to get up and find something fun or exciting & go from there.

Express something sad and something happy on that day. It helps keep you balanced and lifts the mood later. Look towards the future with hope!

Love Always,
Voluptuous~<3

PS Smile and blow your candles, Girl!

It's more than just a day, it's time to do something that you want. Other people don't have to be included *wink*

{Mom, I want to go roller skating for 2 hours, then I'll be home because I want to spend some time with you, too. I need some time to myself. And, I do love you~<3}
