“I now know that, yes, I am powerful. I’m more powerful than my mind can even digest and understand.”
But ok, this is the same kind of thing as that Anne Hathaway thing, the thing where she would be so embarrassed if she didn’t get the Oscar. I know it makes sense, and I know it’s reasonable, but I just don’t think that’s the kind of thing you say to other people. Like with Beyonce: of course she’s really powerful. But what she said is just so … I don’t even know. It runs all over me, it really does.
I feel like a lot of you might not get it, like a lot of you didn’t get when the Anne Hathaway thing made me uncomfortable. And I wonder if it has something to do with me being Southern. Where I’m from, you don’t toot your own horn like that. You just don’t. You’re gracious and you practice humility and even if you know you’re awesome, you don’t rub it in other people’s faces, because that is way impolite, and being impolite is basically the worst thing you can be. Can any of you other Southerners verify this?
