It's part of a business letter:
That’s kinda in my mind, like, “man, what was it about me--” and I’m fine with it now, it is what it is. When I was younger, I used to wonder about that a lot. Like, “golly, what was it about me that a person could think that--”
Just like, “what is it about me that would allow someone to even entertain the possibility that I could do this?” Is that the thing?
