and tone than the other examples I shared, which does show my effort to expand my sources of getting information, and listening to different perspectives to be knowledgeable. Every since I could remember, I’ve always found myself having moments of reflection, even before I knew what reflection was. When I think about reflection, I think about a mirror and what we use them for. When we use a mirror we need to see something, whether it is for styling, guiding, or observation. Because of the mirrors’ “reflection”, we’re able to see things we couldn’t normally see. Just like for me it wasn’t until I took the time to reflect on this process, that things begin to be revealed to me, even as I wrote this very essay. That’s the power of reflection, because in reflection your emotions are balanced, your mind is at rest, and you can get a deeper understanding of how you go about things, if you’re willing to embrace the truth. And the truth for me was I have some seeds of agonism in me, and it been conditioned by my culture, family, relationships, and other experiences. Like mirrors this is why you reflect, so you can present the best you, to make sure you’re taking the right steps, and so you can get a better examination of yourself, which was my objective of this essay. To let you in my reflection process on paper on the subject matters of agonism and “bubble thinking” and see how I changed. I’m embracing change a whole lot more than was before, because through reflection I realized there’s no growth if there’s no change.
