A few more days is my birthday. I feel very sad, because my life did not improve. Life for many years, seemed to have no meaning. The meaning of my birthday, just means less time in the world to live.

For me there's no more meaning of celebrating my birthday. It's far different when I was still a kids. I am happy during my birthday or my birthday approaching. It's because of the children's party and the gift from my "ninong and ninang" and some of my friends. Now, no more excitement. It's a normal day that my age increase.

I celebrated my birthday when I was still a kid. I remembered, I was so happy during my birthday because of the kids coming to our house to celebrate with me.

When I was a kid, I never celebrated my birthday. Actually, not a celebrated birthday, but I just want to be happy.

I'm trying, so what I did was not in vain, and nothing to regret.

Or, it could mean that you survived to have another chance at improving things.

Doesn't really mean a lot to me, for us it's mostly a kids celebreation. In Canada some resturants offer free meals for those of us celebrating a birthday, from a special menu. I often make jokes on my birthday and tell everyone it's not my birthday, because I was never born since I came to Earth by a stork! Then people ask how old I am and I just say "I'm 105!" Gets them laughing. Sorry to hear your life isn't too well, I do hope it'll improve in the future

If you want your life to change you must change it. The world will do what it does and you have no control over that. What you do have control over is contained within you. Start very small, just a simple new habit to start. You are working with your mind and your mind feels comfortable with old habits so it is up to you to create new habits to live with. Maybe something as easy as changing the hand you brush your hair with, this will cause your mind to pay more attention to your hair, admire the color, the texture, the smell excetera. Sure you will think this is not important but what your goal is paying attention to your life. If you can start to do this with just a small thing, pretty soon you will see how you can affect larger items in your life. The truth of life is that the quality is in your point of view. The change from negative thinking to positive will do wonders for you. Blessing and Happy Birthday

It depends on how you celebrate it. My dad gave my mother flowers/attention at the day it was one of our (children) birthday. Since she was the one who gave birth to us. It's the celebration of existing, people being happy you do, or you being happy with you. It's not about less time to live since you don't know how much time you have. It's about an other year full of experiences which made you stronger and realize you are a great person. You survived it, it did make you stronger. So no matter if you celebrate it alone or with others: do celebrate it. Embrace and hug and pamper yourself. Since you are a great person and should be happy you have a great friend which is you.

Maybe it's less years to live and maybe your life didn't improve too much but try to think like the worst is already behind you and now your life will change for the better. If you know what gone wrong this year then try to avoid the same mistakes in the future. There is still a lot of good things ahead of you.

It happens with me too. I feel as if my life is stuck on a path which can neither move ahead or behind. But we need to analyse what makes us think these stuffs. There are people who enjoy life and you should be one of them. Birthdays mark your remarkable journey from the start to the present.

Well,for me ,birthday is not a day for me,but for my immediate family.That is how i have considered to be and that shall always remain so.Its definitely a special day.Its a day dedicated for them and for their efforts in making my life.Every year, i spend my birthday with them.I take a leave from work and spend only with them cutting all contacts with work and those things.I would love to have a special time with them.Birthday is not about age or about physical appearance.Its about others who have been part of life and who has made your life more pronounced and worth living.And we should make each day and each moment worth its time and things.That is how we should live.I do not think think about long life and not worth living in of any use.One should make his or her life worth living and best of all should make a meaning for his or her life.I would urge you not to think in that negative light.Be optimistic.After every sunset there is a sunrise.So make yourself ready for that sun rise.Thanks!
