"... I stopped inviting people to my birthday
the day they stopped inviting me to my birthday.
little did I know that I was never invited to my birthday party..
little did I know that no one ever celebrated my birthday ..
little did I know that my birthday is about me! ..
I am in deeply thrilled for the fact that I am no longer affected by the intoxicating idea of measuring my importance by the number of birthday greetings and celebrations I receive
so I've come to realize I don't want them anymore.
I never did in the first place.
I have learned to celebrate my own birthday, alone.
.. peacefully
and most importantly ..
.. happily."
