Sample subjects were matched based on demographic characteristics such as age, education, marital status. The instruments used in this study were: Short Reiss, Pamir, Nef and VanGatchet Short Form Compassion Questionnaire (AHI)-Ahvaz Psychological Hardiness Scale (AHI)-and Forgiveness Questionnaire by Ray etc. The results of Pearson correlation coefficient and independent t-test indicated that there was a significant difference between spontaneous self-compassion in normal and hypertensive patients.
