Today is my birthday, but not a single friend of mine wished me. I am so angry. It is distracting me from my studies. How should I deal with it?
My answer at Quora: It is a blessing if you ask me. I deliberately switch off my cell phone and go somewhere quiet on my birthdays. Birthday is not a time to waste replying to fake wishes.
There is nothing about birthdays that need to be celebrated if you ask me. It is a day when another year of your life has passed away – just like that.
You have one less year to live. It is time you spend some time looking inside yourself (instead of your fb timeline) and do some serious audit of your life.
Are you living your life the way you want to? Are you clear about what you truly want in life? Are you putting serious efforts in that direction? Are you doing what you really want to, or are you just following the herd?
Now that you have one less year to live, such questions of self-reflection become all the way more important.
Oh, and btw…
