Self Abuse Causes
The exact cause of self abuse is not know, but studies have shown that it usually indicates that somewhere during the development of that person he/she did not learn good ways of coping with overwhelming feelings or stress. It is commonly refer to as form of a “coping mechanism”.
People who suffer from self harm are not sick or insane, they just:
- Feel empty inside
- Over or under stimulated
- Unable to express their feeling
- Not understood by others
- Fearful of intimate relationship
- Fearful of adult responsibilities
The only way out to relieve and cope with this pain or hard to express feelings is by self injury. But relieve is only temporary, and a self-destructive cycle often develops deeper and become more complicated mental health or personal problems without proper treatment.
