Age your character ten years. Do they still have the same problems? Or completely different ones? Can they forget whatever they went through and settle down to live a happy life? Or are they still wallowing in the past?
Did they even get to their happy ending yet?
I have a story that's being told from the point of view of my main character from eighteen years in the future...
If your plot is at that time then you would go another ten years... Well I guess since I don't know how your story goes I can't really say anything. Mine is about a plane crash and really how bad my characters lives are. So going ten years I can give them a happy ending

What's a CD? Do I just answer the questions?
None of my characters get a break. They're still entrenched in multiple crisis, dealing with rift walker experimenters, sub-dimensional beings running rampant, and repairing the fabric of reality. Then, about 5 years into that, the Gods come and massacre over half of them and it get even more difficult. Some new characters take over chasing after the Gods, but the original characters still need to keep running their own operation to prevent a complete dimensional collapse. Well, most of my characters are immortal or have ridiculously long lifespans, so I suppose 10 years for them is like a week for us.

Just go ahead to their happy ending. However long it may take
