Birthday Blues

Every birthday I get a little sad on the actual day. After being disappointed as a child every birthday, I know I’ve built up such a habit and it’s so hard to break.

I’m trying to create a model and understand what’s really happening for me and I wanted to double check my R.

C- my actual birthday
T- nobody cares
F- sad
A- disengage, try to ignore that it’s my birthday, cry, mope around all day, bicker with kids/husband
R- I act like I don’t care, so of course people won’t care
