Dear Dish-It: My BFFs Forgot My Bday!
All of my best friends forgot my birthday, should I be worried?
Hmm...that's a tough one. Did your friends know that it was your birthday? Sometimes we think everyone should remember our special days, but the fact is we all need a reminder once in a while. If your friends are busy and you didn't say anything, like "Hey, guys, my birthday is coming up next week. I'd love to have you all over for a party at my house on Saturday to celebrate!" then you can't really blame them for not remembering. I know it seems like it should be easy for BFFs to remember each other's birthdays, but just cause your besties forgot doesn't mean they don't like you anymore...
Be a Birthday Ambassador
If it's REALLY important to you that your friends remember your birthday each and every year, then it's going to be up to you to make that message LOUD and CLEAR! How do you do that? By handing out calendars to your besties that have your birthday circled in red pen? NO! Just the opposite...you have to take the lead in making sure that each and every one of your BFFs' birthdays are as special as can be, so that when your big day rolls around your friends will think, "Oh, she was so nice to us on OUR birthdays, let's do everything we can to make HER day extra special!" Of course, you shouldn't do nice things for people just because you want something in return. You'll see that if you treat other people, like your best friends, the way you want to be treated, they'll likely turn around and do exactly that!
Princess Party Planner
Why do you need your friends to remember you on your birthday anyway? YOU should be YOUR OWN BEST FRIEND and throw yourself the biggest party ever on your special day! Don't be afraid to go all out and (with your mom and dad's help, of course) plan a bash fit for a queen! After all, your birthday only rolls around once a year - might as well spoil yourself (and invite all your friends along for the ride)!
