Youth is a very critical and tender age group and there is so much of a hormonal game going inside of an individual during a transition period from childhood to a teenage-hood. These hormonal changes make you extremely vulnerable to every good and bad thing around you. You want to try everything for the sake of fun or under peer pressure. You are willing to try smoking, weed, drugs, alcohol, etc. Teenagers do this just for the sake of fun without knowing how lethal these things can be for their mental and physical health. The fun ends up into a nightmare for you, but most teens are not willing to understand this unless they face a tragedy.
Deliberate self-harm is even more common than addictions during this tender age.
Emotional issues such as mood swings , anger, depression, anxiety, hyperactivity, stress, and sadness cause actions like deliberate self-harm . Technically, transition of brain and body heightens emotions . Even the minor or non-significant incidents tend to make you outrageous, and you lash out. Heartbreaks, academic pressure, or lack of family support are a few reasons that force these adolescents to hurt themselves. Somehow, the pain they feel by hurting themselves makes them feel better.
I know this because I have been a victim of self-harm. Yes, in my teenage years, I had no control over my emotions, and every reaction was an overreaction. Even a little setback made me lose my nerves, and I ended up hurting myself. I don’t know how and why it is used to relieve my stress for a short time. However ,It didn’t last long. You are so overwhelmed by the situation that you don’t even understand what damage you are doing to your body unless you see the scars. Nothing heals them, no remedy cures them, and no surgery fixes them. These scars become a lifelong regret.
