Shame and Childhood Emotional Neglect
Shame is a common experience for many people who grew up with emotional neglect. If you're not sure what emotional neglect is, it's when your parents or caregivers fail to meet your emotional needs. This can include things like not being shown affection, not being given attention, or feeling like you're always in the way. As a result, you may have grown up feeling unworthy of love and attention. These feelings can be very difficult to shake, but it is possible to heal from them.
You Live Trying to Be Good Enough for Others and Ignore the Self
If you're ready to start recovering from childhood emotional neglect, there are a few things you can do. First, it's important to understand that you are not alone. There are other people who have been through similar experiences and understand what you're going through. Second, you need to start giving yourself the love and attention you didn't receive as a child. This may include things like being gentle with yourself, setting boundaries, and speaking kindly to yourself. Third, understand that you can heal once you become aware of how your past has impacted your perception of self. Fourth, commit yourself to self awareness, self love, self knowledge, and self compassion. Fifth, it is helpful to work with those who understand how your childhood has distorted your perception of self, and how negative self-beliefs are manifesting in the 3D world, as they often do within codependent relationships.
If you're ready to start healing from childhood emotional neglect, remember that you are not alone. There is help available, and you can overcome these feelings of shame and worthlessness. With time, patience, and self-love, you can begin to heal the scars of your past and build a bright future for yourself.
