Re: About SM and NPA traits
In a much milder form, I have noted some NPA-.NPA= males who get release from "self-pity" recounting abuses they feel they have suffered. And with self insight, they admit that crying makes them feel much better, self deprecating activity and language also makes them feel good.
So, truth is physiologic, they have actual pleasure from painful memories and thoughts. It's chemical. Hopefully, supportive life situation allows self insight, stopping at crying and self deprecation and not actually putting themselves in risky situations of real pain or suffering.
