Various scholars and professionals have emphasized the role of psychological hardiness and family environment in one's personality. The present study aimed to examine the relationships of psychological hardiness and family environment with love towards life.

The study was conducted on a random sample of 230 adolescents studying in government and private colleges of India ranging between the ages 18 to 24. The study was based on a correlational design. A significant positive relationship was found between the positive dimensions of hardiness and love of life. However, there was a significant negative relationship between negative dimensions of hardiness and love of life. Also, there was a significant positive relationship between family relationship (family environment) and love of life. Regression analysis revealed that positive and negative dimensions of hardiness and family environment are significant predictors of Love of Life. Further, the analysis revealed that total family environment emerged as a significant predictor of global psychological hardiness among the youth. Implications of the results are discussed.
