We can relate better to people with cultural differences as we begin to understand ourselves better. This results in more cultural connection and less cultural conflict. how are we supposed to understand other cultures if we do not know ourselves? understanding the many aspects that make up our cultural identity helps us acknowledge and understand others. Being self-aware also prevents us from projecting our values onto others and in the process, helping us relate more effectively across cultural lines.
