She particularly said that this assignment is a chance for us to be honest and dwell upon ourselves. It was an assignment to reflect back on our lives. And frankly, I’m hesitant in doing these things. It’s painful to think of the mistakes you’ve done in the past and the hurtful situations you’ve...
