issues such as bullying, peer pressure, bad parenting, abuse, neglect, lack of love.

negative attitudes and even violence. "I hate myself" or "No
one will ever hurt me again".

benefit. There is no reason to achieve anything or be
The need to take drugs because of peer pressure, enjoyment or
to get away from painful issues currently being experienced
