Reflexivity is reflection for the purpose of personal growth and developing deeper understanding. Sometimes this understanding is of ourselves; sometimes it allows us to understand others. When we develop a better understanding of others and what they experience, we can grow, even if only in small ways. These journals are a tool to promote that growth.
