If you have a birthday…..

Standard

And no social media, does it really happen?

This is the first birthday since 2008 that I haven’t had some sort of social media, and I gotta say, not having hundreds of strangers wishing me a happy day kinda sucks!

On the other hand, not being on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter means that my actual friends call or text to let me know that they’re thinking of me.

Of course, this also means that I am super aware of how few “real” friends I have. Painful, yet oddly liberating.

What good are birthdays if you can’t ride an emotional roller coaster, right? So here’s to good friends, being a survivor, and another birthday! Here’s to 38, may it feel no worse than 37.wpid-img_20141205_213242.jpg

  1. Well from one stranger to another, happy birthday! My husband turned the same age the next day. I sort of refuse to wish people happy birthday on Facebook. I send cards in the mail, and phone when I can. If I love them, they’re worth that much effort, I think. Facebook greetings just make me feel cheap.
