    i just wanted to share this:

    being forgotten is one of the worst feelings ever.

    i thought i had met the greatest group of friends my sophmore year in college, but come senior year (last summer) they met new people and i fell out of favor with them. i was basically forgotten. abandoned from invites, etc.

    my birthday was yesterday, and all of them used to give me a call at 12:00am or just call me on my bday. no one called me. i didnt expect them to call since i havent talked to them in over 8 months. but it just hit me no one wished my happy birthday. say what you want but it is a little disheartening ... cause 3 of us had birthdays within 5 days of each other and even though this sounds stupid, we used to make posts on our online blogs wishing each other birthdays. i visited some of their blogs and i wasnt even mentioned. :wtc: i just want a hug now... thats all...

    ill get it over.

    Forgotten one can live with that...people get busy and life happens and one forgets.
    I should think being hated would be worse than forgotten.
    A belated Happy Birthday to you and I send you a Super PuppyCat Hug from my Special Reserve.

    Whats worse than being forgotten? Being remembered late, and then lied to about being forgotten. Happy B-Day.

    I had very similar experiences and feelings after leaving school. I remember one occasion where a big party was organized for this guy whose birthday fell a few days after mine (I didn't get so much as a 'happy birthday'). I was in attendance and didn't think I could feel worse until the awkward silence which followed when somebody suddenly chimed, "hey, didn't your birthday just pass?" I think there are 2 ways you can go with this.

    One: those you thought were friends are only good acquaintances, they'll fade even more with time and you won't lose much.

    Two: for true friends, don't let the relationship become a one-way street. Take the initiative to contact them and be involved in their lives.

    it's ok, my birthday was on 8/4 and I know what it's like to be forgotten. My birthday is the most hated day of the year for me. I put on a show to people when they mention my birthday like "oh yeah, i totally forgot", but in reality, I knew it was my birthday coming up. At 11:50pm, 10 minutes before my official birthday, I watch the clock hoping someone would call/text me at midnight. This year I had a fight with my girlfriend and when midnight came around, I received no text. I did receive one text from an ex gf, which made me feel a lot better because at least I knew SOMEONE cared, but I'm sure in your situation, at least your mother/father/siblings wished you a happy birthday. Eventually my gf texted me one hour and forty four minutes later (which she claims she texted at 12 but took 1:44 to send which may be true since her phone sucks) but for those first 30 minutes after midnight, my heart sank. The only thing I can say to you is that you are not alone and there are many other people who feel the way you do. I have even worse stories of self pity to tell you if it'll make you feel better but I don't have the heart to write them out now if they don't do you any good.

    :hug: Happy belated birthday. People really suck sometimes, you just have to have hope that in the future you're going to meet other (better) friends. :x:

    I think this year on my birthday I'll probably be forgotten too. I'm just trying to plan something for myself to do so I don't sit at home and be super depressed by myself. :dunno:

    being forgotten is a bitch and it is a shitty feeling. A few years ago a close friend friend of mine had a BBQ they day after my birthday and i wasnt invited, what was worse i was told about it by said friend before it was even on. Since then i always make sure that my birthday is a very low key affair to avoid dissapointment.

    Happy belated Birthday.

    I'd rather be forgotten than hated.
