Neglect – the effect of neglect is a deep psychological one. It erodes people’s belief in themselves. Children of neglect often end up as adults in needy, codependent relationships and continue acting out their deepest beliefs by living in less than ideal situations when they physically have the means to adapt to a better existence, but are psychologically and emotionally stuck.
People suffer neglect for a variety of reasons, but it is never because they deserved it. No one really deserves neglect. In Australia neglect may come from cultural issues, religious beliefs, mental illness or abuse. If you have been neglected it may be effecting your choices and your life now.
