I’m really sad because my parents and my whole family forgot my birthday. What do I do?

Dear Sad Birthday Sasha,
I’m going to start off by saying, “Happy Belated Birthday!” I hope that helped a bit. I understand why you are so sad. Anyone would be sad if the people that they love and care about forgot their birthday. It’s natural to forget someone’s birthday once in a while. I bet even you can’t remember every single one of your family members’ birthdays. The truth is I wouldn’t be able to either. Regardless if your birthday is remembered or forgotten, you need to keep in mind that you are still a special person. You still are important. Know that just because they forgot your birthday doesn’t mean that they don’t love you. Maybe next year, throw out some reminders just in case.
