Hi, this is from Bridget Jones' Baby - quite out of context.

Bridget has a bad day and is sitting in front of her house hungry and exhausted and thinks this:

"Whole idea of making the big small is just bollox."

What is the meaning of "making the big small"?

Thank you for your help.

    I would guess it means to try to think of big problems as being small problems, so they are easier to deal with.

    It's not a set expression, so I can only guess. It may become clearer as the story continues.
