I would consider them spandrels. In particular, byproducts of having evolved pleasure as a mechanism for driving behavior.

The "too broad" flag, to me, is more for technical how-to type questions that are the norm on the original stack exchange. I'm not sure if broad questions are so bad in a scientific pedagogical situation.

comment Is there any evolutionary theory for self-destructive behavior?
perhaps you could backup your assertion about self-destructive behavior being a stress response with some literature. Explaining behavior in terms of evolution is very difficult. I also see two ideas here: giving up vs. self-destructive.
