I'm not exactly sure what you mean by "its used to get u back to the last steps you was in but why," but I will offer a bit of information.

The init system starts up programs and services when the computer boots (initialization). That is its primary purpose.

In the SystemD init system, SystemD also logs events; logs are useful for diagnosing problems. SystemD's own function for reading logs is called journalctl, but most distros which use SystemD include a program called rsyslog, which pipes SystemD logs into the traditional log format in the directory, /var/log.

Might pay to look at the post history of the OP.
