The Little Things that Get You

“Great events make me quiet and calm; it is only trifles that irritate my nerves.”~ Queen Victoria

 

I read this today and had to laugh. At myself. Lately my nerves have been irritated, shall we say?  And when I think of what’s irritating them, it’s the little things.

 

I’m with Queen Victoria (words I never thought I’d utter)! It’s always the little things that get to me.  I can take major illness, injury, whatever. I get a paper cut? A blister? Tragedy.

 

I do think part of it is because I can’t break down when something big is happening, so that when the stakes are low, I let ‘er rip.

 

An amusing observation on human nature today.
