fo.Today is my birthday, but people often avoid me because I’m not considered attractive. No one has ever truly appreciated my looks in my past eight birthdays.

As I celebrate another year of life, I find myself reflecting on a recurring theme that has followed me through the passing years: the perception of my appearance. Today is my birthday, yet the joy of the occasion is tinged with a hint of sadness, for I cannot help but notice the subtle avoidance from those around me. It’s a familiar feeling, one that has haunted me for years—the feeling of being overlooked because I am not conventionally handsome.

For as long as I can remember, my appearance has been a source of insecurity. Growing up, I watched as my peers received compliments and attention for their physical features, while I remained in the shadows, unnoticed and unremarked upon. As birthdays came and went, the pattern persisted, leaving me feeling increasingly isolated and inadequate.

Despite my efforts to improve my appearance, whether through grooming or dressing well, I have never quite managed to shake off the stigma of not being attractive enough. Each passing year only serves to reinforce this belief, as I witness the admiration bestowed upon others while I remain relegated to the sidelines.

But as I stand on the threshold of another year, I realize that the true essence of my worth lies not in my outward appearance, but in the depth of my character and the kindness of my heart. It is a lesson that has taken me years to learn, but one that I am beginning to embrace wholeheartedly.

Yes, I may not be conventionally handsome, but I am compassionate, empathetic, and fiercely loyal. I have a wealth of experiences and insights to offer, and I refuse to allow my perceived shortcomings to define me any longer.

Perhaps it is time to shift my focus away from seeking validation from others and instead, cultivate a sense of self-acceptance and self-love. After all, true happiness can only be found within oneself, not in the opinions or judgments of others.

As I blow out the candles on my birthday cake, I make a silent vow to embrace myself fully, flaws and all. I may not be everyone’s idea of perfection, but I am perfectly me, and that is more than enough.

So here’s to another year of growth, of self-discovery, and of learning to love myself unconditionally. Today may be my birthday, but the greatest gift of all is the realization that my worth extends far beyond my physical appearance.
