    I experience it that way. There is the void from the emotional neglect, the fantasy of someone filling it, the obsessions about the relationship with that someone which acts to fill the hole, compulsions making sure the relationship is still there, shoe isn’t dropping…

    Hi openminded,

    I’m not a therapist but I will share what I know from experiences. The therapy for emotional neglect is seeing a therapist who is trauma informed where hopefully he/she will help you process what your childhood was like and how the emotional neglect affected you. Also going to a therapist who uses IFS (internal family systems) can be helpful. With the help of the therapist you can talk to the younger parts of yourself who felt neglected, not heard, cared for etc and give them what they didn’t get by being their loving parent. It’s hard work but really transformative.
    Good luck!
