A thesis statement for a five paragraph essay contains a general statement that is divided into three opinions which will be supported in the three body paragraphs of the essay. For a narrative essay, then, the writer will make a generalization about the incident which he or she is about to relate with three opinions on this generalization.
For instance, if one were writing about an experience that one has had such as a competition in which one participated, one could write something like this:
When I entered a 5K race on a torrid summer day, I learned the meaning of words my mother often cited: "Where there is a will, there is a way," for having set my mind on winning a trophy to prive to my negative sister that I could succeed, I found that I was able to think more positively, ignore the discomfort and pain I felt, and surpass my usual pace and time.
