Why would cutting behavior be maintained in borderline personality disorder?

▸ Any ritualistic behavior provides focus and clarity to an overwhelmed mind.

▸ Minor blood-letting reduces toxins in the bloodstream that contribute to the disorder.

▸ It reflects the focus on distorted body image that characterizes the disorder.

▸ The negative reinforcement of cutting allows a temporary escape from intense emotional pain.
