On ‘Mental Breakthroughs’, host Jessica Reyes and guest Dr. Cortina Peters discuss why birthdays can trigger sadness, anxiety, or even disappointment.

It’s Not Just About Aging

Birthdays can bring up complex emotions, including anxieties about goals, loneliness, or societal expectations.

Social Media Pressure

It’s easy to compare your life to the picture-perfect celebrations online, making your own birthday feel less special.

Shift Your Focus

Instead of fixating on what you haven’t done, celebrate your accomplishments and lessons learned. Plan meaningful celebrations that reflect who you are.
