So today is my birthday (July 16) and it has me down. Im (blank) years old lol
And I've been nothing with my life I've never dated anyone. Never married no kids no job no car. All my friends are busy this weekend and last weekend. I just feel worthless. I know I'm not but can't shake the feeling.
yes getting older, is better than the alternative. I just I would have made something of myself by now. So how do you, not let birthdays get to you? How you you handle it?

Happy birthday malfoy13 I don’t know how old you are but your never too old to learn something new. Even if it’s an online course. If you can’t work get yourself into something you like by volunteering and it’s a good way of marking new friends

I usually look at my birthday as it being one step closer to me being able to do something that I may have no been able to do. Happy Birthday though.
