“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.
