The term social support can be talked in terms of relationships that how much and to what level can it fit in relationships. The social support includes the help and assistance that one need from friends, family at any time of need, crisis so as to inculcate the positive self-image. It not only improves the quality of life but also helps during adverse times. The self-esteem means self-image that buffers and improves upon one’s beliefs. It is a personality trait which remains stable and is permanent in nature. Self-esteem includes various beliefs about self-such as ones appraisal of own physical characteristics, i.e. appearance, the emotions that one carry and the positive self-attitude and behavior. The term aggression is a kind of response that one gives to other which is unpleasant in nature. In psychology, the term aggression denotes any unpleasant stimulus that harms the physical and psychological characteristics in the environment. The aggression can be verbal, physical, anger and hostility. The aim of the current investigation was to study the impact of social support on self-esteem and aggression. For this purpose, the perceived social support scale (Zimet, Dahlem, Zimet & Farley, 1988), Self-Esteem scale (Rosenberg, 1965) and Aggression scale (Buss & Perry, 1992) were administered to the sample of 100 students in the age range of 18-23 years. The sample was taken from different colleges of Chandigarh. The inter-correlation matrix was calculated. The results have shown and proved the hypotheses that there is a positive relationship between social support and self-esteem (r = 0.19) significant at 0.05 level and a negative correlation between social support and aggression (r = 0.22).
