剧情简介

I thought I had found success in 1989 when, after several years in the business, I arrived at 60 Minutes.在新闻界工作几年后,我于1989年去了“新闻60分”,我想我就是在那个时候获得成功的。I had just had our first son, Ben, and this was the only job I had ever truly coveted.当时我刚刚有了第一个儿子,本,那才是我唯一真正梦寐以求的工作。I quickly became the media's poster woman for having it all.因为我什么都具备,很快我就成了这家媒体的招牌人物。Except for one thing: the only thing I had was a constant knot in my stomach.但有一件事除外:我心里常有一个结。When I was traveling the world covering stories, I literally ached for my child.那就是我到世界各地报道新闻的时候,我真的很想念我的孩子。When I was home, I felt guilty not hanging around the corridors of CBS and chatting up my boss, Don Hewitt.我在家的时候,又对自己没有在CBS走廊里和老板唐·休伊特聊天而感到内疚。Eventually, something had to give.有些东西终究需要放弃。I became pregnant with our second son Gabe,之后我又怀上了第二个儿子加布,and Don and I immediately butted heads over which baby should take precedence: his baby 60 Minutes, or mine.唐立刻就哪个孩子应该有优先权和我争论了起来,是他的《新闻60分》,还是我的孩子。I remember sitting across from him when I suddenly had a flashback:我记得坐在他对面时,以前发生的一幕突然闪现在我的脑海中:Several years earlier, while still single and working my way up the ladder,几年前,我还是单身,处在事业的爬坡期,I had grabbed drinks with a seasoned and respected female producer.有一次我和一位经验丰富、受人尊敬的女制片人一起喝酒。After probably one too many, she confided in me that her biggest regret was never marrying or having children.可能是酒喝多了,她向我吐露心扉,说自己最大的遗憾是没有结婚生子。Something she could not admit publicly -- it just wouldn't look good这种事她不能公开说--说出来也不好,but she had given everything for her job, including herself.她把一切都奉献给了工作,包括她自己。Flash forward: Don probably thought I'd had one too many when I abruptly ended our heated conversation.再回到刚才的场景:当我突然结束我们激烈的谈话时,唐可能也以为我喝多了。I believe the words I uttered as I walked out the door were, "I'm out of here."我相信我走出门时说的是这么一句:“我不干了。”Not very mature, but, that night I slept like a baby as the knot in my stomach unraveled.那样做不是很成熟,但是那天晚上我睡得像婴儿一样香甜,因为我的心结解开了。
