Additional Information: This quote is from Canadian poet Shane Koyczan's spoken-word poem "To This Day," which he recited in a 2013 TED Talk. The poem is a reflection on bullying and how being a victim of bullying affects one's sense of self. In this line of the poem, Koyczan is saying that emotional pain -- such as that caused by bullying -- results in just as much suffering as physical pain and disease, despite the fact that people often trivialize it.
