I Feel Guilty After Killing Insects

    Let Me Clarify

    I respect all living things, including bugs, and if possible, I will trap and release the bug.However. If there is a bug ON me, I am prone to freaking out and may kill it by accident or instinctively, before I can stop and think rationally. The only exceptions are fleas, ticks...

    I do feel guilty whenever I kill insects.  Call me weird but this is true.  I rarely kill insects.  I take a paper towel and put them out, lol.  My husband usually kills cause I have a hard time doing it.

    Hence, why I've been trying to capture the

    insects and spiders I find inside and release them outside. Most of the ones I find in and around my house aren't that dangerous. It's silly to kill something just because you're afraid of it.

    They make me cringe and I am terrified of them but after all they are God's creatures too and I feel sad after I let my dogs kill them.
