Is it normal i kill bugs and birds?

Is it normal that as a kid I killed bugs and birds for pleasure?

When I was about 6-13 years old I set ants on fire with gasoline, shot birds with BB guns, stabbed a live crab with a knife for fun and pleasure.

Am I going to HELL?😈🔱

I feel like a horrible person now even when I eat meat. 😭

Is It Normal?

  • All of us started life as obnoxious, selfish little shits completely lacking in empathy. Most people develop empathy as they emotionally mature. Some don't, and it's not unusual for psychopaths who treat people and animals like shit as adults or even commit murder to have a history of harming animals when they were children. Some kids have a lot of anger about the adults in their lives which they vent on weaker children or helpless creatures, since expressing that anger to the adults will result in them getting the shit beat out of them.

    Since it seems you now regret your behaviour back then, I suggest you put these events on your mental list titled 'Stupid and awful things I did when I was a kid', and try not to worry about it. Everyone who isn't very good at repressing unpleasant memories has at least a few things on their own list with that heading.

    • I also called my Mom a bitch and slute called my Dad a stupid pig.
      Broke doors and furniture in anger.

      My parents now in their 60's mean the world to me now.

      Why was I a horrible stupid naive rebellious kid?

      • It's always hard to know for sure why we did the idiotic and sometimes downright nasty things we did as a kid. Judging the person you were back then by the standards of the rational, much more emotionally mature person you are now doesn't make any sense, since kids are fundamentally irrational little critters with a very limited understanding of the world, other people and themselves.

        That's why the legal system in most places recognises a lower limit for the age of criminal responsibility, below which a child can't be charged with a crime. Some small kids are so psychopathic, deluded, and narcissistic that they'd be diagnosed as borderline insane if they were adults, but those aren't the standards applied to children.

        You're not that person any more. If your parents have any sense they will recognise that, and just be extremely grateful that they and you survived all your phases and you turned out okay in the end. If you really feel bad about the things you said and did, maybe you should talk to your parents about that and apologise. Maybe it was all down to hormones screwing with your brain functions, or perhaps they have some insight into other possible causes for why you were the way you were. Maybe, if they're honest with you, you'll discover that they did similar awful things when they were kids that they've always regretted.

        Unless there are things about your present life that make you suspect that something is slightly askew in your head and the cause might be stuff that happened when you were a child, I don't see how anything positive can come from you poking around in your memories of what happened back then and trying to understand why you did the things you did.

  • Sounds like normal boy things to me.

  • Most little boys go through that phase. It is how you learn about the world around you. Young brains aren't developed enough to understand the permanence of death. That comes around 7-8 years. It is what you discover about yourself in the process that is important.

  • I certainly don't think it's good, and that's for sure. I kinda understand people killing bugs, especially if the bugs are pest, but the bird thing I can't understand unless you're hunting birds as a food source. I don't think it's normal to kill things for pleasure. Sorry, but I can't lie to you about how I feel on this stuff.

  • I dont think its good to kill anything for fun. Killing bugs or pests in your house, ok. By accident ok. Killing stuff for fun = future psycho or sociopath in my mind.
    However youve either developed a conscious or God magically saved you. Be a good person and try to forget the past .

  • Dude, read my new post about my brother...I think we have something in common. And no, what you did as a kid is extremely common. Little boys exhibiting sadistic tendencies is normal. The problem is when you grow up and STILL want to commit those acts against others. That did not happen to you fortunately. The Ted Bundy's, John Wayne Gacy's and Randall Craft's of this world are the ones who became predators and never grew out of that sadism for whatever the reasons. Hell does not exist BTW.
