ABSTRACT

This study underscores the significance of reflective writing as a means to cultivate humanistic thought. It acknowledges the critical role of reflective writing while also recognizing the challenges that have traditionally hindered its practical application, proposing the use of metaphors as a viable solution. The paper posits that in reflective writing, metaphors are viewed as instrumental in enabling an individual to explore their identity. They do this by juxtaposing the concept of ‘I’ against the similarities or dissimilarities with other entities, thereby facilitating a deeper understanding of one’s own existence. The first step involved acquainting oneself with metaphors through a process of listing and connecting them. This approach paved the way for uncovering the potential of reflective writing in offering new viewpoints and future prospects about one’s self. Furthermore, it was observed that the practice of distilling reflective writings into poetry could catalyze an internal epiphany, facilitating a deeper connection and reconciliation with the world.
