Which is worse, physical pain or emotional pain?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on October 10, 2003
“Emotional pain. That’ll actually cause you to get physically ill. Physical pain comes and goes, but emotional pain can stay with you your whole life.”
“I think emotional pain because with physical you can always heal; there’s doctors. But emotional is hard to get over if something’s wrong.”
“I’d say the emotional pain because it can go on much longer than the physical pain, which will eventually heal.”
“Physical pain because it hurts physically.”
