It was my birthday.
The fact that it was my birthday alone should be sufficient to make this day a good day. But the major thing is that after so many years, I was happy on my birthday. I wasn’t sad or upset about people who didn’t wish me because I had finally stopped caring about such individuals. I did not harbour an expectations from anyone. I did not expect anyone to go out of their way to make me happy and the fact that I didn’t have any expectations alone saved me from ending up disappointed. But yes, my bestie did contribute significantly to making my day special and I truly appreciate and love her for that.
