Reflect on our Emotions
-- -- -- --
In this stage we get a chance to look back on what unfolded. If we do this, we have the opportunity to understand what happened, and learn and grow from the situation.
The best part of this is being able to evaluate how we did with coping. If we do not reflect, we take away our chance for more intentional learning, and will likely just repeat the cycle again and again.
That works great if we are doing a great job with coping in a healthy way, but that is not such a good thing if we are doing things that are not as good for us.
