Self relationship for a Table

Hello all, 

I have a question. Is it possible to create a self relation in power bi? I have a table and the values in this tables can be used both parent and child. That's why I have thought that I can create a self relation and use the same columns with different goals. If it's not possible, do you have any suggestion about this case?

Not very clear if there is better solution in your case, you may create a copy of the table to have a parent table and a child table with relationship.

Can you provide example data and desired output/functionality?  FYI that, if needed, you could pass filters between two columns in the same table with TREATAS.
