How to Have a Better Birthday?
Today was my 13th birday.
Since it is on Christmas Eve I don't celebrate it often with friends. In the past I would invite my entire class and about three people would show up, and this has happened multiple times, leaving a giant impact on me.
All of my birthdays go horrible. This year my grandparents visited to whom I am not very fond of, and the day was consisted of me sitting in my bed and staring at the ceiling.
It was time for cake and my stomach started to hurt, so when my mom called me down, I said, "I can't, my stomach hurts." She still told me over and over to come down and I didn't. My dad came up and asked what was wrong and I told him. He got mad and stormed off, repeating whatever, as he overreacts to everything.
My mom came up again and said, "Come down now, you are embarrassing me." That I found amusing for some reason. She also stormed off and heard both of them yelling down there which started me to cry. I would lie there for a few hours, crying like I did the past few birthdays. I suffer from depression and none of this helped it. And to be honest, I haven't received any presents yet.
What I am trying to get across is how to have a better birthday? And how to avoid this repeating again, year after year like it has been? Thank you.
Is this a good question?
