Cultural identity is important because it determines your sense of self and how you relate to others. Cultural identity is a significant piece of your personal identity, shaping how you view the world around you. It develops as you understand, interpret, adopt or even reject the beliefs, values, behaviors, and norms of society. Culture is also a defining feature of your identity, contributing to how you see yourself and the group with which you identify. Embracing your cultural identity can give you more confidence in who you are, helping you feel more satisfied, more connected to yourself, your relations, and your loved ones. Psychotherapy can help you to discover who you are, which will foster authenticity, confidence and the ability to identify your strengths so that you acknowledge and celebrate yourself with pride leading to positive mental health and wellness.
