It is normal to have expectations and desires for a nice celebration on the day you turn 18. When things don't go as planned, it can be frustrating.
It can be really frustrating to feel miserable and forgetful when no one sees your birthday video or makes birthday wishes.
It is important to realize that social interactions and relationships can sometimes be unpredictable, and that people may have their own reasons for not participating.
No matter how disappointed you may be at first, it's important to remember that birthdays are not determined primarily by external confirmation. Seize the opportunity to reflect on personal development, create new goals, and discover contentment within oneself, realizing that the impact of one's journey extends far beyond the number of opinions or wishes one receives.
Even if initial expectations are not reached, surrounding oneself with supportive friends and loved ones can help create lasting Christmas memories.
