Forgetting birthdays is obviously a bad thing. You feel unloved, unappreciated, and let down. You are not the first to have a birthday overlooked by the ones you love, and won’t be the last. This type of thing is so common that they’ve made songs and movies about it. In fact, the 80’s hit movie, Sixteen Candles is all about a forgotten birthday. When Samantha’s family forgot her birthday she decided to try to make her birthday the best it could be on her own. She dressed up, went to a dance, and tried her best to forget about the oversight—and that is what you should do, too! Call your girlfriends and take yourself out to dinner and dancing. You earned it.
Self-love is important, and is often overlooked. We have unfairly associated self-love with a lack of humility or too much pride. This is not the case. It is when we love ourselves that we learn to love others. It is the unfortunate person who has no self-love that hurts others with their indifference. So on your birthday—love yourself. Treat yourself to a great night out. Whatever is your favorite thing to do, do it. Deal with your boyfriend tomorrow.
And lest you think he’s getting away with something, let me explain. If you let it go on your birthday, if you go have a good time, when you do finally tell him what you did on your birthday he will feel awful. He will not only feel awful, but he will see that you were strong, resourceful, and don’t need him to be happy. It will be a wake-up call that he desperately needs.
And if it isn’t well you learned something from that, too. If he doesn’t change, you’ve learned you can live without him and have fun and that he wasn’t the right guy for you.
