birthdays are nightmare for me. hii I just turned 18 this january. I live in a typical joint family. my family celebrates my birthday but it is full of formality and forcement since childhood. I am not allowed to celebrate my birthday with my maternal family. my maternal family loves me so much.this timely maternal family wanted to visit our home for my 18th birthday but we refused coz my grandparents will create chaos after that. we decided to celebrate my birthday one day later to my nani's house. mostly everybody gave some reason or other to not come. one of my masi showed up but her husband doesn't. he was sleeping at his home and he is always there for my other cousin's birthday. my another masi and her husband showed up but I waited for them the whole afternoon and they came at 7pm. they kept saying yeah yeah we are coming from 1 pm and they just live 5 min away. there was no sense of excitement or happiness in them. seems like it was forced. they love me but idk
