Besides that, aspect of differences among gender in dealing with a particular negative life event is also taken into consideration in this study. The research was qualitative study and semi-structured interview questions were used. The number of informants involved in this study were ten, 5 male and 5 female respectively. All respondents were interviewed based on the research questions formed earlier of this study. The age of respondents basically revolves around 21-25 as only young adults were selectively chosen. The data collected from the interview was analysed based on the thematic analysis.
