It's just really disturbing to me, especially when I think I killed something by accidentally sitting on it or putting my hand on it, and even if it's as simple as killing a mosquito I just can't bring myself to do it. This goes for small animals too, like baby mice or frogs. The thing is, I don't really want to get over it, since I don't want to kill anything, but I want to know why other people feel guilty when they kill something but I feel something else, it's kind of indescribable. I mean, I definitely feel guilty, too, but it's just something about crushing something to death that really scares me and I thought it was normal at first but I realized that other people can just step on spiders or smack a fly against the wall, and all they complain about is it being 'gross' when to me just the thought of doing something like that is horrifying(I might actually feel the same way about larger animals, but I've never been in a situation like that). I want to know if anyone else feels like this, since I haven't been able to relate to someone on this topic.
I'm sorry this question turned out being really long, too.
Ahh I feel the same way too! My boyfriend likes to sprinkle salt on slugs because they are known to carry diseases and stuff, but I hate when he does it because I always imagine the pain that the animal is going through. If I ever have to kill a bug for whatever reason, I always want it to be quick and relatively painless.... So yeah, I totally feel you lol!
If a bug is to close to me then I will kill it! Just think that there are thousand more of those bugs somewhere else! One or two won't hurt anything! I would not kill a frog, but a rat or mice is another story!!
