Impact of Relationship Status on Self-Compassion and Meaning in Life among Females
The present study was aimed at discerning the impact of relationship status on self-compassion and meaning in life. For the purpose, a sample of 70 females belonging to the age group of 18-25 years was taken. The participants were divided into two groups: (single or in a relationship) on the basis of their relationship status. Each group was assessed for their self-compassion and meaning in life, quantitatively with the help of self-compassion scale by Neff (2003) and meaning in life questionnaire by Steger, Frazier, Oishi, & Kaler (2006). The results of the study indicated that there was a significant difference in the levels of self-compassion and meaning in life, among single females and females in a relationship. And it was observed that, females in a relationship elicited higher levels of self-compassion and meaning in life with a mean of 3.53 and 4.44, as compared to single females with a mean of 2.96 and 3.90.
