Your Question

why didnt my friends wish me a happy birthday 


Hi, welcome to Ask Alex. Thank you for reaching out to us.
You’re wondering why your friends didn’t wish you a happy birthday. We’re sorry to hear that your friends didn’t wish you a happy birthday. It’s understandable that you’d wonder why.
Did you try speaking to your friends about how you’re feeling about this? Sometimes talking about how we feel can help us make sense of things and stop us from overthinking. By speaking to your friends, they might be able to offer an explanation for not wishing you a happy birthday.
Perhaps you could speak to a trusted adult about how you’re feeling? This adult could be a parent, aunt, uncle, cousin, teacher, or youth worker.
If you feel you’re not ready to speak to your friends or a trusted adult, you can always reach out to us at Childline. Childline is here for you, and we’d love to chat with you more about what’s going on for you. You can reach out to us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and our services are free and confidential. You can talk to us by phone at 1800 66 66 66 or chat with us one-to-one on our Live Chat at  We won’t judge anything you say to us or tell you what to do. We’ll look at what options may be available to you, with you.
Thank you for getting in touch with your question, and please contact us again if there’s anything else you’d like help with at any stage.
