When you celebrate your birthday alone, it’s a reminder that even if you’re surrounded by people, you still feel lonely. It’s not as good as celebrating with friends and family, but it’s better than nothing at all.
Moreso, when you celebrate your birthday alone, there isn’t much to do except wait. You’re not waiting for anyone to come home. You’re not waiting for a phone call or an e-mail or even a text message. You’re just waiting.
You feel disappointed because no one remembered that today is your birthday. No one called or texted to wish you happy birthday. No one sent flowers or anything else that would let you know that they care about you and that they remember your day in some way or another.
We all want to be surrounded by people on our birthday, but for those stuck working or otherwise indisposed, here are a few lonely birthday quotes for myself to make you feel less lonely.
