I don’t know how to understand this topic about reflection. Only on the last part, I get some more idea reading the story having trouble on partnership. He thought that the problem was caused by his partner but he was the one making the problem due to poor communication.
The idea is to step away to object and see it more clearly. Often times and truly we cannot observe what is going on inside if we don’t look in others point of view. We must think about what happen and will show where did you make mistake or done good things.
