Understanding your own positive traits is an important part of building your self-worth and self-esteem. When you do not know your own positive traits, it is hard to feel like you know yourself. You often do not know how to make proper decisions, or how to behave in a healthy way.
Your self-worth and moral structure is influenced by your positive traits. They help mold your values and help you create a path for yourself toward happiness and success.
Sometimes, clients do not know their own positive traits. This is because they never took the time to reflect on them. Helping a client discover their positive traits can make a huge difference in how they see themselves and their future.
