All I can say is it happened again…
That time of year, on a “special day” that everyone wishes you well, while the rest of the year they couldn’t stick enough knives in my back. Hypocrites.
The Special Day I’m referring to is ‘The Birthday’. Its starts off the same as any other day. Then the phone rings, another relative wishing you a happy birthday and all that. BLAH, BLAH, BLAH.
It is on this day that I can think of how to best use this birthday time, is to remember all of the crap you went through to get to this point, at this very time. You know, like the moment your in now reading this article. Similar, and yet different.
Don’t get me wrong, birthdays can be filled with laughter and food and great moments. However much I want that to be true it just isn’t going to happen. So as I sit here alone, eating my birthday strawberry cheesecake [ one of the few things that remind me that it is my birthday] I leave you with a few words of wisdom.
