My career is not my life

Tippi Hedren was a successful Hollywood actress who rejected the sexual advances of Alfred Hitchcock. He promised to ruin her career and he did.  In a recent New York Times article she was interviewed about her relationship with Hitchcock.
Of course, you must not have gone to his funeral. I did.
Why? I would assume the only reason you’d want to see his grave is to spit on it. You don’t get it. He ruined my career, but he didn’t ruin my life. That time of my life was over. I still admire the man for who he was.
I recently learned this in a sermon on Generosity and Relationships by Tim Keller.
