For instance, a woman may self-harm due to repeated inflictions of sexual and physical violence. In such cases, there is no chronic chemical imbalance in the brain that suddenly appeared, instead, the experience is a trauma-response in which the woman feels calmer when self-inflicting abuses have already been inflicted on her previously. This is just one example of why an individual would self-harm. It is important to note that every individual will have a different answer, different reasons, and different sensations when self-harming.
