I used to hate bugs so much, especially spiders. I killed any spider within 10 feet of me and when I was younger I would amuse myself by stomping on ants and other insects...just thinking about it saddens me now. I stop what I'm doing to watch ants + spiders and other bugs going throughout their day, smile at them and send them love, and even feed them [yup, I feed insects + arachnids, lol]. A couple months ago I would spend entire days lying in the grass watching insects and other creatures just living their lives, and if they crawled all over me I didn't care one bit.
l remember mentioning 12 months ago that l was going to put up some coppor to stop the snails from getting all over my sprouts, but now l couldn't stand the thought of doing such things.
