Narrative Essay help please?

QUESTION
Narrative Essay help please?
When you write a narrative essay, is it kind of like telling a story about yourself and then at the end, saying what you have learned or realized from it? And can you have more than one story in the narrative as long as they both taught you the same or similar things?

Thanks!

Please read this for help.
When you write a narrative essay, you are telling a story. Narrative essays are told from a defined point of view, often the author’s, so there is feeling as well as specific and often sensory details provided to get the reader involved in the elements and sequence of the story. The verbs are vivid and precise. The narrative essay makes a point and that point is often defined in the opening sentence, but can also be found as the last sentence in the opening paragraph.
Since a narrative relies on personal experiences, it often is in the form of a story. When the writer uses this technique, he or she must be sure to include all the conventions of storytelling: plot, character, setting, climax, and ending. It is usually filled with details that are carefully selected to explain, support, or embellish the story. All of the details relate to the main point the writer is attempting to make.

Sample Opening Sentence: Friends are temporary, but Family, whether close or distant lasts.

Ending: As I walked out those steel doors, none of my running buddies where there to greet me. They either were all dead, or in a different Prison. The person standing there waiting to pick me up, and love me unconditionally was my Mother.
