    Happy birthday!

    You are never alone online. <3

    If you ever have children, remember how alone you felt and let them celebrate their birthdays the best you can.

    Happy birthday! :party:

    I wish you a year full of happiness and achievements up ahead! :yay:

    I realise you probably do not feel very well at the moment due to your situation, but that can be fixed! :grin: I remember feeling like you are feeling now many times in the past and when that happened, I reached out to old friends I had not spoken with in a while, spoke with new people in my classes or joined new activities (extracurricular courses, clubs, and volunteering, to exemplify).

    Try to identify why you do not have friends if it truly is as you say and solve the problem by getting rid of the cause. Do you not talk to people? Do you not interact with like-minded people? Are you bad at keeping in touch? Do you not present yourself as someone people want to be around (a.k.a. are you being too negative, shy, and so not talkative that someone might feel like they are talking to themselves), even though that is not representative of reality? Eliminate the cause and you will already be halfway towards getting more friends for an awesome birthday party next year! :cool:

    Do not lose hope or think yourself unworthy of friends or anything like that. That would be as false a belief as possible. Even if today might not be that amazing, at least you can make tomorrow better! :woo:

    Going out by yourself is not that bad :ahee: You might even meet new people :mmm: As long as you are safe, it is fine What matters is that you have fun :heart:

    If you ever need to talk to anyone, feel free to VM or PM me :cube:

    I wish you all the best, OP! :hugs:
