Mental Pain Is Less Dramatic Than Physical Pain

Mental pain is less dramatic than physical pain

Mental pain is less dramatic than physical pain, but it is more common and also harder to bear. The frequent attempt to conceal mental pain increases the burden: it is easier to say
“My tooth is aching” than to say “My heart is broken.”

– C.S. Lewis
