Sometimes it's only in hindsight that we get a sense of what our story is - a sense of closure. Through reflection, through journaling and through re-writing our narrative. This is why reflection and writing our story is so important - it brings closure and even hope as we are able to move forward again. If you are in the middle of a difficult story right now, know that this too will pass and soon you will be able to make sense of it all.
