I really enjoyed this article, I have a feeling like you conveyed so much in a relatively short piece!
I am very inspired by the way you describe what it means to “Be Yourself”. Indeed, this became such a cliche in the world of self-help and personal growth, that we have started taking this phrase for granted, not even realizing what it means anymore.
I am a huge fan of the approach of understanding yourself first, so that you can relate to others better. Therefore I also liked the structure of the article and the exercises you describe: digging within first, and then playing it out in interactions with other people.
Another thing I enjoyed about your article is how you balanced your personal story, research references and the practical part with the exercises. A very interesting read it was! Thank you for your work.
