  • Recovering from physical pain depends on the injury, recovering from emotional pain depends on the mind..so I guess it depends on how "strong" one is mentally? But I think the body is probably better at mending itself than the heart x
  • Emotional pain take much longer. Even the worst physical pain involves emotion so I think it's clear that emotional healing which can always have the scab ripped off, may never heal and the pain can be brought back in a blink of an eye by one word from someone.

  • Without a doubt, emotional pain takes longer to recover from. Because it manifests itself as memories and memories are very difficult, if not impossible to erase. When physical pain is remembered it is usually not as vivid or accurate as emotional pain when recalled.

  • It depends on the cause and magnitude. In my own case, all of my physical pains have healed quite quickly, and some of my emotional ones have healed as well.

A decade since it happened, and it still hurts me every single day, just as much as when it happened... I have merely learned to live with the pain.
  • Emotional, wounds on someones body can heal. But in some cases they never do but then again some emotional problems might not either. So I guess it depends on which two things your comparing.
