What Are Stefan’s Options?

Well, he has two options.

  1. He can be miserable his entire life thinking about what could have been.
  2. He can put it behind him and do the best he can with his remaining time on Earth.

How Stefan Got Through It

He now believes that time heals all wounds.

“It was actually a really big milestone in my life where, like, I sort of realized how I was going to define my self-worth going forward. It wasn’t going to be about how much money I have in my bank account.”

Forgetting a password doesn’t make him a bad person or an idiot, even if the password leads to $220 million.
