The first being self-harm such as burning himself on his arm with a cigarette or punching himself in the face. But things start to change when the issues are no longer about Marie and instead are issue within Robb. He explains to Brandon that he is not good enough and he is not worthy of anyone. These emotions are being brought out because he loves Marie more than himself.
