Early adulthood is a period of emotional turmoil because numerous changes occur throughout this time. Developmental activities that differ significantly from previous phases of development necessitate individuals to adapt to new living patterns. With these demands, significant pressure is created, causing individuals to suffer stress and feelings of helplessness, impacting the meaning of the individual's existence and allowing the temptation to self-harm to express negative emotions. This study aimed to see if there was a relationship between self-forgiveness and meaning of life in early adulthood with nonsuicidal self-injury behavior. A quantitative technique utilizing correlational methodologies is used in this work. The correlation coefficient for this study was 0.914, and the significance value (p) = 0.000<0.01, indicating a significant positive relationship between self-forgiveness and meaning of life in early adulthood with self-harm (nonsuicidal self-injury) behavior.
