Abstract

Reason for living is a seldom-studied concept that may have important implications for college student affairs. The aim of this study was to examine the influence of attachment style in close friendships and emotional autonomy from parents on college students’ reasons for living. A sample of 441 undergraduate students participated by completing an online survey, including attachment style, emotional autonomy, and reasons to live. Findings suggested gender, attachment avoidance, and dependence on parents are predictors of college students’ reasons for living.
