People self harm to have a control over their chaotic internal emotions. By harming themselves,they distract themselves from constantly thinking of a trauma and focus their attention on the pain of the cut.
as someone who has been there, this seems like a dry, bookish definition of it…perhaps accurate too but it is so much more than just that. THE INTENSITY of your emotions, just think about how someone must be feeling, rather HOW MUCH they would be feeling to do something like that to themselves…it’s not easy and definitely not exhaustible in a two liner

That’s true. BUt it is the least constructive way to approach one’s problems. It may seem right in that moment but becomes toxic later on. One should divert themselves to other constructive practices.
