It is natural to have expectations and wishes for a pleasant celebration on the day of turning 18. When things don’t go as planned, it might be depressing.
It might be really frustrating to feel unhappy and forgotten when no one sees a birthday video or offers birthday wishes.
It’s crucial to realise that social interactions and connections can be unpredictable at times, and that people may have their own reasons for not participating.
Regardless of how disappointed you are at first, it is critical to remember that birthdays are not primarily defined by external affirmation. Treasure the opportunity to reflect on personal development, create new goals, and discover contentment inside oneself, understanding that the influence of one’s journey extends beyond the number of views or wishes received.
Even if the initial expectations were not reached, surrounding oneself with supportive friends and loved ones can help create lasting birthday memories.
