5 Ways To Give Emotional Neglect The Middle Finger

Before you read this article, I want you to read this list, and keep track of everything you believe applies to yourself. Feeling of emptiness, counter dependence, unrealistic self appraisal, no compassion for self, has guilt and shame, self blame, the fatal flaw (if people know me will they still like me?), difficulty nurturing yourself and others, poor self discipline, and poor awareness and understanding of emotions. If you identify yourself with any of these categories, you most likely were neglected by your parent(s) as a child. Maybe you are still a teen and are currently being neglected. Whatever the case may be, this article is for you. Just to add I would highly recommend the book, Running on Empty: Overcome Your Childhood Emotional Neglect, by Jonice Webb for further help on your situation. For now, here are 5 useful tips to start your pathway to happiness! :)
