Reflection Paper - 861 Words

Growing up, I never understood the phrase â€Å"What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.† I could not wrap my head around the idea that something that was once harmful could transform into something that is beneficial. After all, I did not understand that painful situations could often result in unknowingly successful outcomes. To my surprise, I slowly began to understand the overused expression as I grew older. Through being exposed to the good and especially the evil, I realized that this saying was not simply a clichà © or a catchy Kelly Clarkson song.

While each factor contributed to their eventual split, my father’s problem with drugs was by far the most impactful.

While this anger plagued me for a year or so, I eventually learned to deal with my feelings in a more positive way.

I always hated English simply, because I never concerned myself as a writer. I always stuck to the bare minimum and was pleased to know that I passed. I honestly never tried hard in English because I never felt good enough. I did not see myself as a confident writer and I am not sure I ever will. Since, being enrolled in English 201, it supplied some challenges that I was not ready for and felt unsuited for. Along the way, I learnRead MoreReflection Paper On Writing And Writing1085 Words   |  5 PagesThe content of my paper was typically not the issue, the organization of the ideas was. I always had good ideas to write about, but I never knew how to organize those thoughts into a well-organized paper. Although in Writing 101, I used the multiple steps of the writing process to insert my ideas into a well-written paper, I continued to struggle in areas such as grammar and mechanics. In Writ 102, I was able to realize that the writing process develops over time, and the best papers result from revisionRead MoreReflection Paper : Barbie Q By Sandra Cisneros938 Words   |  4 Pagesexploration paper, the reading and writing paper, the annotated bibliography, and the academic research paper.
