Coming to Terms with My CEN

Childhood Emotional Neglect (CEN) is more damaging than it sounds.

Ever since I came across the words Childhood Emotional Neglect on a reddit thread, I finally had a term for all of the emptiness and numbness I felt.

According to Dr. Jonice Webb, CEN is invisible. It’s not what you remember, it’s what you can’t remember. It is a condition where your emotional needs were not met by your caretakers.
