|Self-Injury is the act of purposely harming yourself. Approximately 1% of the population has or does self-injure, and although that may not seem like a lot, it is. That means that about one out of a hundred people in the world purposely hurts themselves, for various reasons.
Self-Injury is called by many different name. Self-harm, self-mutilation, self-abuse, and self-inflicted violence are just a few of them.
It's an addiction, an illness. Every time you hurt yourself, it gets harder and harder to stop, in most cases. And in some cases... they never do.
