You become more aware of what your thoughts, feelings and needs are so you can act in accordance with them.
When other people know how you feel and what you need they can often help you get your needs met.
Clear self-disclosure is a way of taking responsibility for yourself.
Clear self-disclosure is important in relationships because it helps each know how the other person feels-how the situation appears from the other's point of view.*
