LIFESTYLE Psychology

You may be familiar with the word "masochist." It essentially defines someone who derives pleasure from their own pain. Some people do get sexual gratification from painful and/or humiliating actions, but these are mostly consensual, and very specific to an area of these people's lives. And most importantly, they don't affect the people around them.

Emotional masochists, on the other hand, are people who feel most comfortable being miserable, and who thus do everything they can to indulge in negativity. People with a self-defeating personality not only live emotionally painful lives themselves, but they also affect the lives of those around them.
