Self-harm occurs when people intentionally damages themselves emotionally or physically. This can be a result of distress and emotional problems. Teenagers are mostly the ones to get depressed due to the rapidly changing hormones and mood swings. When something bad happens to them such as failure in exams, break-up with lover or they are bullied by someone, they start considering themselves guilty and hurt their own selves to find peace. They distant themselves from the rest of the world and don’t want to move on with life. This leads to self-destructive behavior in them and they hurt themselves in the process. During self harm, people consider themselves the root cause of every negative thing happening around them and vent out all the frustration on themselves. This can even worsen up to the extent of suicidal feelings in them. In such case, people require medical assistance or psychological counseling to deal with their trauma issues.
