For my 13th birthday my presents came in a cardboard box and I knew that a few of them were donated by friend's who's families were better off. Shit wasn't easy but my parents still did the best they could with what little money we had. It took me a bit of time to realize that it was the best they could do and that it showed how much they care about me. God damn I wish I could take a lot of stuff back that I did.
>Be last friday >Be birthday >Yay >Have to buy my own birthday cake >Everyone in my family is basically sick except for me >Lame as fuck and boring >Go out with buddies later and get hammered >Total my car drunk as fuck at 3 am >Be ok >No one knows I was drunk >Get a check for $18K from insurance >Now have 12 points on my license
Should be looking at about $700 or so a month in insurance now.
>>582865729 Keep on mond I turn 21 next month. All through highschool I fought with my parents, mostly my mom because my dad has been and still is busting his ass for at least 13 hours a day so we can barely make ends meet. In one of the bigger fights we had when I was about 18 I told her I hated her and that she's tearing our family apart when in reality she's the one that holds us all together and she's always been there for my siblings and I no matter how bad we fuck up. I ended up hitting her and calling her a bitch and after school that day I went to a friends house for the weekend and that's when I first started drinking. I still don't remember what happened that weekend, what I did or said. After the weekend I got home and found a note on my bed she had written out. I'd take a picture and share but unfortunately I found it and threw it out last week while I was cleaning. I wanted to get rid of it and just bury that shit because of how bad I felt about it.
I've got more but I'm on phone so you'll have to be patient if you want to hear it.
>>582864086 OP is a jelous faggot that his parents never give him shit for birthdays and now he is some kind of drugaddict junkie with stoner friends a.k.a. "cool guys" these days, i bet hes happier than you and a lot of people with "friends".
this reminds me of a birthday gift I did for my wife. I loved doing card tricks. I asked her to pick a card, and write her name on it. Afterwards, she put her card in the middle of the deck, and let me shuffle them.
I did the whole "is this your card" thing, only for her to continuously say "no". finally, I went through the whole deck, only to reveal that her card wasn't in there.
Then I pointed behind her, to inside the fish tank. Lo and behold, there was her card, right in front of our beta fish. She smiled and went to hug me.
I whispered in her ear "don't you see, princess? if you keep telling me "no", I'll make you sleep with the fucking fishes".
>>582866323 I hate this picture. it's a really cynical way of looking at things. trust someone from /b/ to notice that someone is happy but also spew a load of shit about him having a terrible life. why should he be condemned to a life of prejudice and persecution? making such an assumption is a really pessimistic way of looking at life. He will be loved by his family, anyone who treats him differently won't be worth knowing. You strive to surround yourself with people who make you feel good and who love you. Imagine he had a decent life and was happy, then when he's older sees that caption. tldr; this picture doesn't make me feel, it just makes me sad.
>>582867131 Earlier in highschool when I had my first "real" relationship I was dating an Asian girl. I bought into all her shit and let her walk all over me like the beta I was. During our relationship some money had been going missing from my mom's purse. Now my mom works for herself, I guess the best sounding way to put it is that she's a self employed home keeper. She mostly does work for senior citizens and in most cases goes above and beyond to help them with whatever they need (grocery shopping, getting around town, etc.). She works for 2-4 hours every day cleaning other people's houses to come home and clean up after myself and my little brother and sister. Most of the money she makes goes towards gas so she can make it to each job. Well over the course of 4 months $170 had gone missing from her purse. I didn't believe that it could be my girlfriend cause I was a blind fucking retard. When she confronted me about it I got pissed off and told her to go fuck herself and packed up a bunch of shit then headed to my friend's house for the weekend. Later when I could finally have some proper judgment I realized it was all her the whole time. She was alone in my house around the same times money had gone missing and she had been buying a lot more shit. She's got a kid now and lives a few blocks away with her boyfriend in one of her father's rental properties.
>>582864086 I used to have birthdays like this all the time except with a lot less time put into it by my family >only people there would be my mum and stepdad and sister until she moved out >$10 cake from woolworths >reused candles from previous birthdays >tfw when I sat there while my mum sang happy birthday knowing I was a complete fucking social failure
>>582864086 what's shit tier in this pic? is it cause he's bad looking or the presents aren't impressive or what? you faggots don't have families? who cares about any of that stuff it's all about them caring for you and if my caring parents gave me fucking shampoo and congratulated me then I would be happy and thankful
>>582870232 I met a guy similar to this. Had such a nice dog and he wasn't asking for money for himself he wanted money for some dogfood he was in a wheelchair and told me he was a veteran. I gave him the few bucks I had in my wallet and I always drop by and give him some more when I see him on the street.
>>582864086 People always say these make them sad/cringe/laugh/etc, but it's not like that when you think a little. Yeah, by the looks of some of these people, this could be all they do for it, but a lot of people might have a little party with their fam and then go out with their friends or something.
My birthday's next week. I hate my self and I hate my life. I'm a total loser.
Had a great birthday last year though... first time in years. I was actually happy that day... It sucks kinda being able to remember there's a few specifics days where you know you were genuinely happy.
> 20th birthday. > Party planned with friends and family. > Suddenly, family dog gets hit by car while brother out walking him. > Everyone rushes to the vet. > Nothing can be done. > Mom still insists we at least make a cake for me. > Everyone ripped to shit due to dog dying. > Have to make my own birthday cake to cheer my mom up.
>>582868148 I've always come near the verge of tears because of this pic and post on numerous occasions. The thought that he'll have a great life never occurred to me until now. Thanks, anon. Seriously.
>>582871678 Shit man all the good feels from when I was a kid. I wish I could have that back when I used to actually be part of my family. I think the happiest anyone has been in my family for the past while was when I graduated. Only my mom and my brother had graduated highschool besides myself in my immediate family. I think that's the most proud I've ever made my family and one of the few things I did right.
>>582871621 I know it's going to sound stupid but go to the gym. I started when I was in college and had money to do so and went with my friend from a higher level welding class 5 days a week after class. I felt more confident I was much more happy with everything and I could put more energy into shit. It was also the time in my life that I remember having almost no trouble getting to sleep at night. I also started eating better and staying on the healthy side of shit. Once I finished my course I didn't have access to the campus gym anymore and started smoking more pot to forget about why I hate myself and now I'm getting kinda fat.
>>582871706 also my 18th bday was pretty shitty >moved to another town when i was 17 >was also left by the prob best girl of my life at that time >couldnt really get into the new people at school >told none my birthday is up >wanted to see my friends from my hometown >mid-week so they cant visit, weekend also full >came home from school to be alone >parents had to work hole day, little brother also had a long school day >sat there eating a üieice of my cake alone >felt there was nothing in the world to look forward
i stopped announcing my birthday to people so the following ones were all pretty lonely. shit got better in university, better people and im generally more optimistic. gonna have some of my friends come over to party for my next birthday in 2 weeks
>>582865729 I'm in the same boat, man. When I was growing up, my family had enough money to put food on the table and that was pretty much it.
It's not birthday related, but I remember one Easter we had our car break down and we were behind on rent, elec bills, that sort of thing. We ended up getting a flower that mum went out and picked the night before. Back then I was disappointed because everyone else I knew got the regular shit and I had a fuckin' flower but that's all we had and mum gave that up.
>>582870983 I decided to quit band back in high school and start computer programming as my media class instead. Before that, my parents didn't let me do otherwise, but I submitted a year coursework plan that showed what I wanted to do with my life.
I can just imagine the mother of this sperglord. Kind, sweet, well-meaning. He doesn't have any friends, really. His family doesn't have much money. She still tries to give him nice birthdays. She know's he's getting older now, probably too old for the accolades. But she also knows that nobody will come. The only person singing happy birthday is her. His stepfather is sitting drunk, his stubbled grimace lit only by the flickering of the television. He invited everyone. His mother places settings for a party, a clean glass topped with a party horn for every perspective guest. No one. Wine glass cocktails of lime jello, arranged for an empty audience. He smiles innocently for the picture. You can see the emptiness in his eyes. The forced smile. This was the final straw. This is where he died inside. This is where his hope was lost. Sitting in front of a metal bowl of cheese puffs.
>>582874273 She has to drive in her own vehicle to get to each clients house. The ones that are really far away pay extra, they insist because they're very wealthy people. One of the people she cleans for owns an oil field in Alberta and other's are inherent millionaires and shit like that.
>>582872760 dude i know that feel, there is no time like the time when we were kids. You don't care for money, you don't care for bitches, no ambitions for any career stuff whatsoever. I really miss being a child, but we can never go back. We can just try to honor our childhood by trying to be the best person we can to eventually give our own kids a equal or better childhood than we had. My father was alcoholic since i was 7, but i never noticed it until i got 14. When i came home from school my father was home. I always liked it. We watched pokemon together and even learned all 151 of them. My father never really cared for that stuff, but he learned 151 stupid fucking pokemon names so we had a great time together. As i got older his problems got worse, he drank even more, got agressive, nearly died by blood poisoning 3 times. When i was 18, he killed himself. At that time we were broke because of all the money he spend for stupid shit. He became paranoid when i was like 16, thinking i would sleep with my mom and my mom being a government spy trying to destroy his life etc. He was abusive (mostly verbal. WHen he tried to hit me i always defended myself. Drunk people are not hard to overpower once you turn 16). The day he died was a day where i really felt free. Not free of all that shit he put us through, i was not happy that that shit finally found an end (we even got some money from an insurance that was enough to pay our debts). I was just free of hate for what he did. Never was i happy that he died and our problem was ended. Alcoholism and suicide does not solve problems, it just ends problems. The day he died was the day my hope died to get my real father back. When i think of him, all i think of is how i lied on his huge stomach when i was 7 years old. Please dude, do not miss your chance to solve your problems. Quit drinking, never kill yourself. You got nothing to lose if you already consider suicide. Make the right decision on what to do with that freedom
I've always hated my birthday. Since I was young I lived with my adoptive mom. Her husband left when I was very young. As I was growing up my mom did the best she could to make sure I pursued school and worked hard. But I hated her. Failed relationships and insecurities she had made me hate her and blame her as time went on. Around 15 I got into hard drugs living in a single apartment in a shitty area. Every day was filled with fighting. I worked and went to school so I thought I could do what I wanted. I stayed out really late and was an all around asshole. I began shooting heroin right before my 16th birthday. And my mom knew. However, since my job was what was stabilizing the house for food she wouldn't do much more than yell and threaten the police when I came home messed up every night. My birthday is dec 24th And my mom wanted to visit my family in another state around this time for a couple days. I told her to go without me. I had been gone from the house for a couple days in hopes she'd be gone and I came home that night at about 2 am to find my mom asleep on the couch. cake in front and a couple presents I knew she couldn't afford. She missed her flight and later found she didn't eat for the couple days I was gone. Fucking moms. Still kills thinking about it.
>>582877091 I had an experience that was close. Mine passed 5 days before my 12th birthday. I had never felt so sad in my life prior to and after that moment. I wish he could have seen me get married. I remember summers hanging out, him watching the history channel and I playing my gameboy color. 12 years later and I still miss him. But that is the funny thing about being a child. You don't truly understand what has happened until it hits you many years later.
What's wrong with Op's birthday? He's got a little spread on the table, seems fine to me.
My sweet 16 was in juvie and one of the guards gave me a bran muffin with a candle and I lit it and I got thrown in the hole for having a lighter and they kept me in for a long weekend to see if I'd tell them how I got the lighter in.
I had another birthday where I was in casts at the hospital with two obliterated ankles and the drip was not enough to dull the pain at all so I asked if I could have some extra birthday painkillers and they were like haha no.
>>582878890 Why do any of us read fiction, science fiction, fantasy, etc? I know I do it to escape into what I perceive as a better world. I'm fortunate to have everything and everyone in my life that I do have, but I wish it was in another time, another place.
>>582880418 oh man, i read every single post in this thread and my mind got tired (hard day at work, 1:30 am here now). Read the wrong word. I am always heartbroken when i hear stories of alcoholics wishing to die. It does not have to end this way. As long as there is somebody loving you (parents, siblings, friends), suicide killstheir hope that you can be happy together someday like you once where.
>>582864086 >be in middle school >invite my friends to my birthday >maybe invite a dozen or more people >get grounded not long before birthday >allowed to still have party at Chuckie Cheese's >one friend comes to my party >wait around to see if anyone else is coming >nobody comes and parents feel bad for me >go to CC's and play arcade games >win tickets and get prizes >overall fairly shitty for an outcast nerdy type >my friend that came is more nerdy than I am >officially my worst birthday party ever
