It's not that they LIKE to self harm, it's just their way of relieving stress when they are really stressed out. Think of it like this, back in the 17 and 1800's in developing colonies in whats now, the United States, if you had a head ache, they would cut open a small patch on your head and let blood flow because they thought head aches meant that there was to much blood in their heads. In a sense, the blood is their stress "flowing" away from their body.



Note: The part about the head aches was something I learned when I went to Virginia so it might be wrong because I forgot some of the stuff I learned there.
