When you reach your thirties, birthdays stop being happy. For some of us, our birthdays bring feelings of anxiety rather than joy. That special day becomes another reminder that we're getting older, and the time we have to fulfill our dreams is running thin. Personally, it's a day that I dread each year. Even though I realize how lucky I am to celebrate another year of life, I can't help but feel overwhelmed by the pressure of it all.

@Jordan You’re not alone. I have the same feelings. First and foremost, we are extremely lucky and I feel grateful to be celebrating another birthday each year. However, I still feel the same anxious feelings you do and wonder how and where I could do better in my journey through life.

What helps me get through those anxious moments is waking up everyday day and thanking God for another day and another chance at being better. We have so much to be grateful for and if we focus on that, more good will come.
