Is anybody else like me when it comes to birthdays???
I’m the sort of person that has a countdown for my own. I have every single person who I love, cherish, and honor on a paper calendar. I have alarms set in my phones to remind that they’re coming up.
I am OBSESSED with birthdays and I think they are a big deal. I believe in them being celebrated every single time they come around.
I am however married to somebody who isn’t built exactly that way. So we often find ourselves in a predicament, that I’m getting more and more comfortable with as the years roll on. Which is I make a bigger deal about them than he does. As time has passed I’ve come to terms with the knowing that just because he’s not as outwardly focused on them, doesn’t mean he loves me less than I love him. The energy that a partner, does or doesn’t put into celebrating your birthday the way you would like them to isn’t a sign of bigger trouble…or is it???
Things that make me go hmmm…
So my friends, today’s What Would You Do Wednesday is all about making choices. If you were dating somebody who didn’t think something like a birthday was a big deal, maybe even to the point of not even getting you a card let alone a gift would you:
a) continue dating them anyway, your birthday only comes along once a year and what matters most is how they treat you the other 364 days of the year?
b) share with them how important your birthday is to you and ask that they celebrate it the way that makes your toes curl, it is after all YOUR ONE day of the year?
c) not date them anymore?
d) do nothing, since birthdays aren’t a big deal to you either???
I’m so curious to hear your answers on this one, because I’m WAYYYYY OVER ON THE EXTREME of birthdays. To me birthdays are a serious business. Don’t believe me, just ask Yanny Bissony, today’s birthday boy!
Catch up with you tomorrow!!
