[tweetability]Birthdays are important. The fact you’re here to celebrate is reason alone to cheer. Another birthday is another chance at greatness.[/tweetability]
I may make the odd ‘old’ joke every time a birthday comes around, but I don’t mean it (usually). But it seems to me there are an unhealthy amount of people who passionately abhor turning another year older and choose to act as though the event does not exists.
I get upset when friends choose not to celebrate their birthdays - recently, a close friend of mind hid the fact it was her birthday to all those around her. I still brought her a mini surprise birthday cake which we shared in secret, but I couldn’t understand why she didn’t want the fuss over her, she didn’t want the attention or to ‘bother’ people.
For anyone who feels the same, I’ll say to you what I said to her…
