Is there little difference between masochism and self-loathing?

I think masochism involves the joy of hating yourself and hurting yourself. Not everybody who is self-loathing enjoys hating themselves or hurting themselves

Self-loathing causes masochism. Self-loathing is internal, but masochism involves acts against oneself done as punishment.

No, there's a lot of difference. People who self-loath don't generally derive pleasure from it, much less sexual pleasure.

I feel like masochism is more active, while self-loathing is usually a passive process. Also masochism derives pleasure from suffering. I don't think self-loathing derives any pleasure.
