Is there anyone else just not bothered about their birthday?

    I turn 20 in about 6 hours. I couldn't be less excited, in fact I don't want to turn 20.

    Maybe it's just because 20 is like a more significant number than 23 or 24 or something. I'm no longer a teen. I'm (apparently) now an adult and there just seems to be such a big gap between 19 and 20. Maybe it's because I'm not in the best situation right now and don't have an awful lot of reason to be happy. I don't know.

    I sound so depressed right now, I'm not. But honestly, why even celebrate my birthday? What am I celebrating exactly? Another year where I haven't died? Another year closer to dying? It's just a day. That's literally it.

    I'm not going out drinking with anyone, I'm not seeing anyone, in fact work has it that I'm working 2am-7am and then I'll probably just come home and want to sleep. Just like any other day. I have the night and the next 2 days off to get over any potential hangovers, but there won't be any.

    I just don't care. Obviously when I did when I was a kid and got toys and cake and ****, but now, just.. eh.

    Anyone else feel/felt this way?

    I think honestly it's just an excuse to get drunk. Just like every other calendar event. Getting drunk because it's someone else's birthday and not even yours.. how sad :lol:

    I stopped caring after my 18th cos every year it's a chilling reminder that I'm closer to death.

    I do like receiving free money though.

    I'm 26 now and the days of me caring are long gone. It's a good age as well, when you're younger everyone's like "Ahh, it's your birthday soon, what are you doing to celebrate?" and I'd feel pressured to do something big and social. Nowadays "Ahh, it's your birthday soon, what are you doing to celebrate?" might get met with "Erm, hmmm...... I might treat myself to a bit of lubricant when I w***?".

    It's my birthday tomorrow and I'm really not fussed. I'm seeing friends on Saturday but I likely would have done that regardless of whether or not it was my bday. It's my dad's birthday on Monday though so it's a nice excuse for the whole family to go out. Haven't gotten excited about my actual birthday in a long time though.

    For some reason people feel excited and want to celebrate their birthday when they get older. For me it's just a normal day no special occasion just when you were born.

    Exactly. I feel like maybe you'd celebrate something significant like turning 20,30,40 etc. but other than that what good thing is there? Oh hey, you were 27, now you're 28. That's incredible.

    The only other reason I'd celebrate someone's birthday is if it was like a 90+ year old relative because they hadn't died yet. Gotta be honest.

    I don't even have that anymore, I always end up spending more than everyone else and then kicking myself because I could have just settled on a £10 fragrance gift box :rofl:

    Yeah, that's so true. After my 13th birthday I haven't cared about any of my birthdays, they've just been normal days.

    I always feel depressed when I read your posts about life as a 26 year old. :rofl:
