It is a fear of birthdays. The anxiety that premieres prior beforehand. The urge to have a better bash than the one held last year.
Introverts cases are worse, they hate being in the limelight. They don’t like being the Centre of attention, to receive gifts and have a fuss made, it can trigger a type of social anxiety.
You can have high expectation where you looking forward to receiving a lot of gifts from the FF, family & friends. Sooner or later you may end up with no gifts et al. This will definitely lead people to feel sad around their birthday.
My dad told me ,
“Expect nothing so that when something comes it gonna act like a surprise”
FRAGAPANOPHOBIA REMEDIES Manage your expectations and do not over plan. If you decide to rely on others, please remember to set a sadness limit to be comfortable with the incoming grief. Start the day well and do something special.
3 things about me;
- I only drink twice, during my birthday and when it’s not my birthday.
- I don’t contribute towards birthday parties.
- I don’t need your invite, once I know the venue and time, BOOM am present.
