3 supportive Facebook groups for personal growth

3 supportive Facebook groups for personal growth

Have you ever joined a Facebook group thinking that it would be a cool group to hang out in, full of sweet and encouraging people, only to find out that, in fact, it’s full of slimy, self-promoting people?

Yeah, me too.

In my search for a quality Facebook group that actually focuses on personal growth I’ve kissed a lot of frogs.

Not to mention, the groups that promise to be about one particular topic, like the law of attraction and manifesting, when in reality they’re all about “Look how much money I’ve made!”.

That’s why I created this brief directory of Facebook groups that are frog-free and worth your time.

So, in no particular order, here are 3 Facebook groups worth joining if you’re interested in personal growth and self-improvement.

I think I mistook you for excellence or conscientiousness. Boy, was I mistaken.

Since then, I’ve ended our relationship. But, as with any stalker ex, you keep popping up all over the place. I can’t seem to get rid of you. You keep coming back again and again. Everytime I think I’ve made progress, there you are whispering in my ear “That’s average, make it perfect!”, interrupting and distracting me.

So, here’s the mindset shift I’ve made when you, dear Perfectionism, keep rearing your ugly head.

I need to make a confession. I’m a personal growth junkie and I have a secret obsession with taking personality tests. *waves uncomfortably*

While some online tests and quizzes are nothing but fluff, there are also a lot of meaty, science-based, and helpful tests out there.

Can I be completely honest for a moment? Actually implementing these test results is hard. Personal growth is uncomfortable. But for me personally, it’s worth it. I’ve grown so much over the years. I’ve learned about myself and changed certain habits. I’ve also learned how to overcome my perfectionism.

Today, I’m sharing 4 of my favorite personality tests and assessments that can help you to get to the core of who you really are and grow as a person.
