Coming to the first question today, what is self-harm?
Self- harm or self-injury is defined as the intentional, direct injuring of the body, done without a wish to die.
What forms does self-harm take?
The most common form that self-harm takes is using a sharp object to cut one's skin, but other behaviors include burning, scratching, banging or hitting body parts, interefering with wound healing, hair pulling, and consumption of toxic substances or objects. It is important to note that though suicide may not be the intention for self-harm, self-harming behavior can be potentially life threatening. There is also an increased risk of suicide in individuals who self-harm.

Let us talk about self-harm today. Self- harm is something that makes all of us sit up, and take notice. However, most of the times, we notice for the wrong reasons.

We feel, "Oh she's doing this just to get attention" or "What? You are cutting yourself? Are you a girl to do that?" or "This generation is only messed up! All these attention seekers, can't take no for an answer!"

And how do we react? "Stop this nonsense! Are you mad?" or "One beating I'll give you!"

Self- harm is not an attention seeking tactic. What then is self-harm and why do people do it? We shall cover these two questions in this two part series, today and tomorrow. We hope that after this, all of us do sit up and take notice, but this time, for all the right reasons.

Carl Rogers was an American psychologist and among the founders of Humanistic approach or client centered approach to psychology and psychotherapy.

He believed that every person can achieve his/her goals, wishes and desires in life.According to him, each one of us needs to be provided with genuineness, openness, complete acceptance, unconditional positive regard(not placing conditions on whether or not he will be loved. For example, if you do this, I will love you, if not, I won't.) and empathy, to grow. Without these, he said, healthy personalities and healthy relationships won't develop.

Here are a few of his most notable quotes. Good fodder for thought, no?

Coming to the second question of why people self-harm, let us look at a few reasons. These reasons are not mutually exclusive or exhaustive but are commonly noticed. Although some individuals who self-harm do not have a diagnosable psychiatric concern, many individuals experiencing certain psychological conditions are at a greater risk of self-harm.
Self-harm may be a coping response to intense and overwhelming emotional pain that cannot be resolved in a functional way. For some, it might be a means of controlling and managing pain, as opposed to the past when they had no control. For a few, it may be a way of detaching or dissociating from emotional pain or to get rid of their feelings of numbness and to feel something, feel alive. Some individuals may also engage in self-harm to emotionally manipulate others.
Self-harm and it's reasons are worth looking in depth into. What it can be certainly seen as is a desperate cry for help, a plea for aid that cannot and should not be ignored. Let us strive to support and understand individuals who self-harm and give them the help that they need.

All of us feel the need to share our thoughts and feelings with significant others in our lives. Often, we feel misunderstood.
Read this insightful article by our team on why we feel misunderstood and what we can do about it!
Often, when we feel overwhelmed in our day to day lives, we wish to share our feelings, thoughts and perspectives with people who are part of our lives. We share these for several reasons – to feel validated, to find an emotional release, to ‘sort things out’ as we speak, and so on. Underlying many of
