What does the story make us understand?

Self-harm is a serious and complex issue that affects many people of different ages and backgrounds. It is the act of deliberately harming one’s own body, such as cutting, burning, or hitting oneself. Self-harm is not a suicide attempt, but rather a way of coping with emotional distress or expressing difficult feelings.

Some of the reasons why people may self-harm include :

  • Expressing or coping with emotional distress
  • Trying to feel in control
  • A way of punishing themselves
  • Relieving unbearable tension

  • A response to intrusive thoughts

Self-harm may also be linked to bad experiences that are happening now or in the past, such as :

  • Bullying
  • Pressure at school or work
  • Family arguments or relationship problems
  • Money worries
  • Sexual, physical, or emotional abuse
  • Bereavement
  • Confusion about sexuality
  • Low self-esteem
  • Stress, anxiety, or depression

Understanding the reasons why people self-harm can help them to find healthier and safer ways of coping with their emotions and challenges. It can also help them to seek professional help and support from others who care about them. Self-harm is not a sign of weakness or attention-seeking, but a sign of pain and distress that needs to be addressed.
