We learn in this chapter that Kat is good at dealing with big problems but not so good at dealing with small problems. Some people are more relaxed by nature and can cope with small problems calmly, however, even those people will have small problems that irritate them. I myself think that generally I deal with small problems quite well, but also know that if I cannot find the TV remote or we run out of cereal, then I can quickly become infuriated and my stress levels can rocket sharply.
Please share a small problem which you can find difficult to deal with.
