Abstract:The association between self-compassion and stress has gained increasing attention as it has been shown that people who have higher levels of self-compassion feel less stressed compared to people with lower levels of self-compassion. The social context of people plays a crucial role when examining how people perceive self-compassion and stress. Nevertheless, there is a lack in research on how the association between self-compassion and stress is perceived on a daily basis and whether there is a difference in self-compassion and its association with stress when people are in the company of others compared to when they are alone. The current study examined daily feelings of self-compassion when people are in the company of others compared to when they are alone based on their trait self-compassion level. Furthermore, it was investigated whether there is a momentary positive association between daily feelings of self-compassion and stress and whether this association differs based on the social context a person is in.
