Sometimes there is a ball of pain inside that grows and grows until it is unsustainable for the body to contain it. By cutting oneself, the emotional pain embraces physical pain and becomes more real. Seeing the wounds on one’s body brings the internal pain to the surface.  As the wounds heal, the emotional pain also seems to heal. He’s better now.
