Birthday sadness.

Yesterday was my 19th birthday. throughout the day, my friends have wished me a happy birthday
on facebook, through text, etc. even the people i'm not exactly close to, like my stepmother's family, wished me well. h***, even my mother, who i don't have a perfect relationship with, did the same.
yet no one on my mom's side of the family has bothered to contact me in any way. not even
my aunt, who i've always considered as a mother figure. i call her and get her something special every year (even when she basically verbally abused me through her entire birthday dinner
back in july). i can't help but be hurt and confused. i'm wondering if i did something wrong? part of me wants to believe they simply forgot or were too busy. still, i feel like they're doing this on purpose, though i don't know why.
even though my feelings have been hurt, i'm gonna do my best to concentrate on the good. at least i know there are people who thought i was worth remembering.

  • Happy belated Birthday! I'm sorry your mother's family didn't remember or didn't acknowledge your birthday but you have the right attitude. Concentrate on the good-the people who did wish you a happy birthday. If your aunt verbally abused you she wasn't much of a mother figure was she? You're an adult now so you have to learn to take care of yourself and take care of your own needs.
