Battling birthday blues, how do you cope?

So I have a birthday coming up this month, which means I will probably go through a period of “woe is me” my life isn’t where I want it to be yet.  I always treat birthdays like some kind of weird deadline that I somehow missed.  As if I have gone an entire year accomplishing nothing.  I know it’s completely ridiculous, but in my head, that’s how I perceive it sometimes.

Thankfully I have wonderful friends and family that always make a big deal of my birthday.  Even when I try to avoid everyone and pretend the birthday isn’t happening. They don’t let me wallow in self-pity for long.

It sounds so silly, but I admit that being single (with no real prospects) on my birthday is far worse then rolling solo any other time of the year.  Believe it or not, I handle the holidays without lamenting about my singlehood. I relish in it, even; but when my birthday approaches I almost have to fight off a case of the birthday blues .

Does being single during your birthday ever bother you?  Do you have moments when you wish that you had someone special in your life? Does it happen randomly or during a special time? How do you handle it?

What is the best way to celebrate your birthday when you are single and ready to mingle?

What is your most memorable birthday? I would love to hear about it!

Hey the new chick started Monday. The ballplayer tried to get one by me…LOL I man his calendar and how about her 3rd day here, she’s done a client visit. I was clearing his pipeline and the information he logged in from the visit popped up. Oh, and I normally log those visits too. Wonder why he didn’t have on his calendar nor send to me to log? Things that make you say hmmmmm. Shady as a wooden nickel. THAT’S why you keep folks in their boundaries. I don’t play that work place thing. Oh and he’s been super nice but igged, since my manager went back and set him straight.

i stand corrected, we did have some masculine (albeit brief) company today. sorry, chucky, majority rules. buh bye.

i’m sure we’ve all said/heard this before, but once you get your body accustomed to healthy food it is DEADLY to go back to greasy fare.

Anybody see the special on DMX this past Monday. His mother really messed him up mentally, emotionally, and physically! She’s at the root of all his problems. Then his self-doubt in himself and his inability to embrace love nearly tore him apart.

@czB ~ his mother physically abused him as a child. Left him at home for children when he was 11 asking if he liked the place. When he said yes, she said good cuz you’re staying here. She drove off w/his sister. He only had the clothes on his back. He had to fend for himself ever since.

He was there for 18 months before running away living couch to couch of his friends…robbing and stealing and doing crack.

Swiss Beats was on the show talking about how they did a lot of holding people up and stealing just to survive. DMX talked about how one day he was so hungry he drank his mother’s perfume. You see she was asleep and the food was locked up on the fridge she kept in her room!

TheDude wasn’t feeling well yesterday. So, I stayed home with him to pamper him. We watched the DMX Behind the Music and the VH1 HipHop Honors. He is such a music head/hiphophead that he totally loved it even though he wasn’t feeling well.

It ended up being a real cool day.

@Leggs that is terrible being that hungry that you drink perfume and you just know she was going to skin him if she caught him.

Charlie Wax ??

u heard that Shakira..that bootelecious slutt stole pliagiarised from a popular cameroonian military song to make her world cup anthem??

I know the song they talking about and grew up watching/listening to it on tele….

Thats pathetic fo such a big singer.

FIFA had to porny up and pay big time to the cameroonian military band who composed the song.

Man, parents don’t understand the effects that our words and actions/inactions can have on our children. We’ve got to do better. I see it all the time though…parents out in public yelling and cursing at their kids. You can see the pain in the kids’ faces.

DreamsM your 4:31 made me think of the lady that tried to kill her children. 20/20 did a special on it one a few weeks ago it was very sad. To make matters worst she got preggo because she was thinking the jury would not send a pregnant woman to prison. Her daughter spoke out (the one she was carrying) it was just sad all the way around.

@DreamsM ~ I think most parents DO KNOW, they just don’t care. As DMX stated, she was cruel and mean, but he didn’t die from it. He said he would love her from “over there.” A place far from his being!

One thing I have always tried to do is pause before I yell at lil leggs. Something I learned from my mother…she didn’t do this!

@DreamsM ~ I think most parents DO KNOW, they just don’t care.
Often I think parents react out of anger and frustration. Having kids takes a boat-load of patience. You have to be able to temper your emotions and do what is best for the children. Many parents haven’t mastered this skill, especially if they’re really young parents.
