What Is Emotional Neglect?
Emotional neglect is different from common forms of childhood abuse in that it isn’t about what happened. Rather, it is about what didn’t happen in childhood and what you don’t remember.
Emotional neglect is invisible. It can be subtle and usually has no visible signs.
In fact, many emotionally neglected children come from families that seem ideal.
Although you may not be aware of it, emotional neglect can be as debilitating as other forms of childhood abuse.
People who were emotionally neglected are suffering but they can’t figure out the reason for their unhappiness. They are usually out of touch with their own emotional needs. They see themselves as the problem, rather than seeing their parents as having failed them.
