Can someone have apathy from childhood without knowing it?

Need more info

Apathy
Apathy is a current feeling. Hard to say whether something from childhood might make one more or less prone to feeling it. Possibly, early events might make one more prone, e.g., being raised with high expectations of success only to find oneself in a dead-end job with few prospects or, conversely, being abused and neglected, & therefore having trouble risking getting excited about current life.

Can long term trauma in childhood cause apathy in adulthood?

It may be depression

Apathy
Apathy can be a symptom of depression, which childhood trauma can, for sure, cause. Depending on the trauma, duration and age when it was inflicted, it generates many toxic emotions hidden in the deep recesses of the unconscious. It ends up affecting many, sometimes unexpected, aspects of one's life. Best advice, talk to a psychotherapist ASAP. If this is depression, to a psychiatrist too.

Dr. Wil Ausborn answered:

Does everyone experience apathy, or is it a form of depression?

Age may hold the key

Depression and apathy are neuropsychiatric symptoms that are often difficult to distinguish. Specifically, depression causes changes in mood, thinking, physical well-being and behavior, while apathy is loss of motivation without associated feelings of being depressed or blue. Taken together, these symptoms may signal other conditions, such cognitive impairment, and should be screened carefully.
