"If your brother sins against you, rebuke them; and if they repent, forgive them."

We talked about this at length in the Guy Raz NPR interview. Looks like Business Insider just picked up the story, too.

But I'll never forget that moment with Steve and his therapist -- I'd seen Steve cry before, but never like this, he was so vulnerable and heartfelt.

It hit me, hard, and I knew I had to forgive him. There's a great verse in Luke: "If your brother sins against you, rebuke them; and if they repent, forgive them."

It's easier said than done, but at the moment I saw just how remorseful he was and knew what I had to do.

It was one of the best decisions I ever made.

Forgiveness always sounds good in the abstract but can be so damn hard in reality. To work through it is a different kind of commitment. And your line about how friends and co-founders are two different roles - we are always balancing the roles of our lives, and don't want them to change when we think we have them set. And they change anyway, for the better and/or worse. Congrats on your and Serena's baby, and... I'll spare you my own Now Edition elevator pitch;-)
