Isn't emotional pain hard? Emotional pain not only can be re-lived over and over again every time we think about a specific experience but it creates baggage. Emotional baggage such as; insecurity, suspicion, low self-esteem, paranoia, depression, etc. This baggage can stay with us for months, years even. No thank you, I'll leave the emotional baggage behind and deal with the physical pain. Three Tylenol, two ibuprofen please and I'll see you in the morning, good night.
