Why do people get depressed on their birthday
Birthdays are special days and one should ideally feel happy on these days. However, there are some people who get depressed and sad on the day. This does not seem logical as it is the day that you arrived on this planet and since then you have achieved a lot. However, people feel depressed mainly due to the following reasons:
- They feel that they are far from the goals they had set for themselves and they feel that they have not achieved all that they had set out to achieve. They feel that they have lived through another year or rather wasted another year of their lives and this makes them feel depressed.
- People measure the love of other people – their family, friends, acquaintances, co-workers and neighbors by how many wish them on their birthday and it goes deeper than just how many people wish them, it also goes down to how many people have sent them personalized messages and how many have just said the generic “Happy birthday”. They also dissect these messages further as to how they have been wished – how many wished them in person, how many through texts, calls and how many through social media sites.
- People who have passed deadlines they have set for themselves feel more depressed when they have not been able to meet those deadlines. Those who are single, feel depressed when they are still single and have crossed the milestone birthday they had set for themselves to find their significant other.
In order to make the birthday girl or boy feel special, rather than send them a generic message you should consider sending them heartfelt birthday wishes which can be found on various sites. In fact these site have birthday wishes as per age or even relationship.
