Are you feeling neglected in your relationship? Are you a couple yet still feel lonely quite often? Has your emotional or physical needs from your partner been completely neglected? Can you turn things around in a relationship like this? If your feelings are being dismissed and your thoughts are not expressed, you feel as though you, as a person, are not taken into consideration. It is a sure sign you are being neglected if there is a complete lack of support from your partner. When you cannot turn to the one you love in times of crisis and have to handle it all by yourself, the feeling of being neglected really hurts. Just because they are not part of your crisis or it was not caused by them, they should still show enough caring to be there for you.
It is even worse when every one else is getting treated more positively than you are. You get neglected while they cater to everyone else. The one you love makes time to satisfy the needs of everyone around them. They put 100 percent into their jobs, their friends, their family, and their needs, but yours are neglected. It is hard to see them so happy to make time for other people yet when you ask their demeanor changes as if you are bothering them. When someone else talks, they give them their undivided attention. When you talk, they continue to read, play video games, or do whatever they are doing. They don’t allow for a conversation because they do not take the time to engage in a conversation. You feel as though you are talking at them, not with them. Your emotional needs are not getting met and again you feel alone.
All you want is to get back to the place where the two of you can talk for hours about anything, even if it is silly. You miss the times, before the neglect began where when you said something they took you seriously. You miss sharing secrets, talking about the future, and the joy of spending quality time together.
It is not only emotionally that you can feel neglected in a relationship. You can feel physically neglected in a relationship as well. When you no longer get kissed, cuddled, hugged, or even touched for any reason you are being physically neglected. You may still have sex, but if that is the only time you connect physically, you are still being physically neglected. The physical part of a relationship is not just in the bedroom, it should be throughout the entire relationship.
