The Personal Development Posts is a platform dedicated to sharing written and narrated accounts on the quest of making being ourselves just that little bit easier.

We believe in a community which learns from each other as to only makes its mistakes once.

On this journey of finding ourselves and our path, we have learned a lot of our lessons the hard way...

...we are here to share from our personal experience so that you don't have to.

Article 4 - Who are you being?

Written by Yunus Skeete
