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. I’ve stumbled upon groups where there was nothing but icky spam and no true support or engagement. 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!”.
I don’t know about you, my friend, but I don’t particularly care for kissing frogs. #nowayjose
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.

The Imperfect Boss
The Imperfect Boss is a community and movement, hosted by Ashley Beaudin. The mission of the group is to “not only liberate you from perfect and empower you to create a business that actually makes you come alive, but also to change the narrative of the creative industry.”
As you can see, The Imperfect Boss is a group geared toward creative entrepreneurs and business owners, which might not be your cup of tea. But if you’re looking for an encouraging community that speaks the honest and vulnerable truth about their business, work, and life, this might be the best Facebook group for you.
The Lavendaire Lifestyle
The Lavendaire Lifestyle group is run by Ms. Lavendaire herself, Aileen Xu, blogger and YouTube star extraordinaire. I personally adore this group’s slogan ‘Life is an art. Make it your masterpiece.’, because it shows that self-improvement means nothing without taking action.
This group is for you if you’re a millennial interested in personal growth and lifestyle design.
#perfectionistproblems is an online community, hosted by yours truly, for (recovering) perfectionists and self-improvement seekers. So many women struggle with perfectionism and the issues related to perfectionism, like comparison, people pleasing, procrastination, approval addiction, and dealing with your inner critic, and this is the one and only Facebook group to discuss these issues.
The main purposes of this community?
Connecting with like-minded recovering perfectionists.
Getting useful feedback.
Asking and answering questions related to letting go of perfectionism and embracing your perfectly imperfect self.
Sharing your wins and struggles.
Being or finding an accountability buddy.
I’ve personally found that having a community rallying behind me is crucial in dealing with my perfectionism.
A supportive and good vibes only community + encouragement + accountability = a #winwin in my book.

Hi there! I’m Wendy, founder of The Gratefulist and host of the #perfectionistproblems community for recovering perfectionists. I’m insanely passionate about helping you let go of your perfectionism. Let’s chat about the hard stuff - like dealing with comparison, people pleasing, your inner critic & starting a perfectionist detox - so that you can stop caring so much about what other people think and finally take on those dream projects that you've been putting off for so long.
