A further step is to hold up a mirror and consider our own participation in an issue, problem or challenge. Am I part of the problem?
When we look back, at first, we may identify the role we play or acknowledge our influence on an issue. We may reflect on the positive, negative or neutral impact we have on a situation.
When we look closer and see ourselves, we increase self-awareness which is an important trigger for learning and growth. Reflexivity is that circular loop of seeing and changing because we see.
Look through a lens, but hold up a mirror too.
