Sažetak
Existing literature demonstrates that flourishing, or high well-being, is not only an indicator of a good life, but also an important prerequisite of future beneficial life outcomes. However, flourishing and languishing people experience both positive and negative/challenging life events, and some findings suggest that they differ in the ways they respond to minor and major life events and daily situations. In order to gain a better understanding of the mechanisms that could explain these differences, the present study examined whether flourishing people tend to accumulate various resources that enable them to sustain high levels of well-being, and cope with different life events. Building upon the broaden-and-build theory of positive emotions, the main aim of the present study was to examine the role of proactivity and social support in the relationship between flourishing and subjective experiences of life events. We conducted a two-wave longitudinal study among 921 adults (age range 18-78 years ; average age M=37.39, SD=11.76 ; Nmale=159, Nfemale= 762), within a research project the Croatian Longitudinal Study of Well-Being (CRO-WELL). At Time 1, we assessed flourishing, personality traits, occurrence of different types of life events and the subjective experiences of these events, as well as living conditions. One year after, at Time 2, we again assessed life events and subjective experiences of these events, as well as personal (proactivity), and social resources (the availability of social support). We hypothesized that proactivity and social resources will have indirect-mediation effects between flourishing at Time 1, and subjective experience of life events (positivity and negativity) at Time 2. The analyses provided support for the hypothesized research model: Even after controlling from personality and living conditions, the more flourishing people reported at Time 1, the more personal and social resources they had at Time 2 (one year after). This, in turn, led to higher ratings of positivity of life events, and lower ratings of negativity of life events. In other words, these findings suggest that accumulation of personal and social resources can be considered one of the mechanisms that can explain how flourishing people-who feel good and function effectively even in the face of adverse situations- maintain their high levels of well-being throughout time.
