So, it's my birthday today. I don't have very many good memories associated with it, so it tends to be a pretty shitty day. Same with most major holidays. How do you cope with holiday-linked trauma?

Happy birthday OP!! Maybe recreate your own experience/traditions with birthdays and holidays. You can spend the day doing something that you truly enjoy, volunteer somewhere, take a solo trip and make it something that you always look forward to.

Let me know your thoughts!
