Having a grand 18th AND 21st birthday party watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi everyone,

    I would like some advice ... I had my 18th birthday three years ago in a hall with 130 people. I was suffering from crippling social anxiety, an eating disorder and depression at the time. Unfortunately, the experience worsened my anxiety and I became angry that I was forced to have this party. Since then, I have fully recovered from my eating disorder and my depression is under control, whilst I have gradually overcome my social anxiety.

    My 21st is approaching and I would like to celebrate with all my family and friends properly, where I can fully enjoy being in the moment.
    It is over the top to have two massive celebratory parties in the space of 3 years?

    No, don't care about others just think about yourself, you've achieved a Lot over the past few years and spend your birthday as a time to celebrate how far you've come.

    Have a party if that's what you want, it isn't over the top, as you've changed so much, enjoy it and don't care about it being over the top.
