I'll suggest you a noun.

  • The only problem is that this is an adjective and not a noun, so it doesn't fit in OP's context. – AleksandrH Mar 9 '19 at 2:36
  • @AleksandrH - Yes. agreed. However I can feel respect and I can feel forlorn. And I thought there were enough other problems with that sentence that some reword was necessary so it was worth suggesting. – Jim Mar 9 '19 at 2:48
  • @jim could you please share what other problems you have found on the context. – muhammad Mar 9 '19 at 5:10

In the context of your example, I would offer "loneliness" or "isolation". They are akin to being ingnored in the sense of a shared feeling of abandonment.
