What should I do on my birthday to keep myself from getting too depressed?

I hate my birthday, especially in recent years. I honestly didn’t think I would live this long so now every birthday feels more like a mile marker for how long I’ve been depressed. It also makes me anxious because it means I’m one year closer to having to support myself, which I think is going be very difficult to do since I just don’t care. The only positive thing about my birthday this year is that I’m going to be at college so I won’t have to deal with my family. Long story short, I’m stumped on what I should do to keep from getting too sad by myself on my birthday. Any ideas?

It's my birthday next week. I don't know what to do. I know my partner has got me presents and I know he and my daughter will want to celebrate. I don't really want to. I can't think of anything I want to do. But doing nothing would be sad too...

Are you definitely going to be by yourself? Maybe you could go to the cinema? I quite like the idea of going to the cinema by myself and a bag of tasty snacks 😁
