    I have another question: what would you say in English for this sentence:
    "Pourquoi se faire du mal quand on peut se faire du bien? "
    Why hurting ourselves while we could act well on ourselves? sounds a bit weird...

    Thanks in advance

    Je pense qu'on aura des réponses variées selon le contexte
    Why bother if you don't have to
    Why get into trouble if you can avoid it
    Why suffer if you can enjoy

    Could " treat yourself" work ?

    Why do yourself harm when you could do yourself good
    Why treat yourself badly when you could be kind to yourself
