The Differences of Pain

I do not mind if people see me physically in pain.  I’ll limp on a broken foot.  That does not mean I get the broken foot fixed (unless it is really bad) or use it as sympathy.  Emotional pain?  I refuse to let people see me in emotional pain.  Emotional pain is much more difficult to fix.  Don’t get me wrong, I will show emotion: anger, love, happiness, sadness.  Those emotions are surface emotions that are often pressure relief valves for a deeper, underlying emotional pain.  I know a broken bone will heal if it is not all jacked up.  The pain I feel in my soul seems too deep to fully heal.  I know a broken bone heals in weeks.  I do not know when/if this will heal.  I guess I will find out.
