Abstract [sv]

Denna uppsats har som syfte att utforska människors upplevelse av skyldigheter mot dem själva. Anser de attdet finns sådana, vad är de i så fall och känns dem? Genom en webbaserad enkät och elva semi-struktureradeintervjuer utforskas detta ämne. Resultatet visar att alla deltagare i intervjustudien anser att man harskyldigheter mot sig själv. Av det 229 svarande i enkätstudien tyckte 84,88 procent att man hade det. Vidarevisade resultatet att dessa skyldigheter främst innefattade postmateriella värderingar och uttryck som ”attvara sann mot sig själv” och ”att stå för sina åsikter” var förhärskande. Förutom detta fanns det också enkonflikt med andra då många av respondenterna i intervjustudien upplevde att de var skyldiga sig själva att”säga nej”. Till sist värderade respondenterna sin egen hälsa högt samt möjligheten att få uttrycka sin person
