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.

“I wanted to write to you to tell you how much clarity I have received from your prompts in the journals. I bought the toxic relationship and breakup recovery ones and I will forever recommend them to others.

Thank you so much for the gift you share in the world to help others heal.”

“I am so grateful to you. I was somewhat apprehensive about facing certain things that I knew were there but had been resisting addressing. Your approach in the worksheets made it easier, more structured, and less daunting to confront… I am beginning to understand myself better and striving to be a better partner, coach and psychologist.”

– Rocio


Hi there, my name is Hadiah.

I am a counselor and the author behind Ineffable Living blog – a codependency and mental health blog.

I wanted the worksheets to be both informative and engaging, so I worked on creating clear and concise instructions, thought-provoking prompts, and activities that would encourage self-reflection.

As I witnessed the positive impact these worksheets had on my clients' progress, I realized their potential to reach a broader audience.

Whether you’re a therapist, a coach, or a counselor who is looking for tools to help your clients or simply someone who is seeking personal growth, coping strategies, or ways to enhance your overall well-being, our worksheets are here to assist you.
