It probably had water in it's respiratory system...or maybe it panicked and died from that?
I scared the shit out a large roach the other day. It looked up at me and OBVIOUSLY SCREAMED IN UTTER HORROR! LOL.. It's body sort of bent up and it's front legs went crazy and it looked like a human screaming in terror!

Literally this would have been the caption-> screamscreamscreamscreamscreamscreamscream

It traveled frantically about one foot with this body language shooting out in all directions screamscreamscreamscream and completely had a heart attack or something and DIED ON THE SPOT! LOLOLOL

Re: i just wept over watching a moth die
it had landed in some water and one of its wings was practically destroyed. it was making a pathetic attempt to fly, batting its wings and slowly crawling along. i put my finger in front of it and it crawled onto it, and it seemed to look at me as if asking for help, then it fell to the ground and stopped moving. tears formed in my eyes and i began to weep.

is it a sign of an underlying mental issue to have such strong emotions over an insect?

being/feeling numb sometimes is more painful than experiencing the initial emotion that one was trying to dismiss.

Re: i just wept over watching a moth die
I still distinctly remember a certain beautiful butterfly I killed as a child in the 1960s.

This punky 'friend' of mine egged me on to pull its wings off.
It stuck out its tongue in desperation as it was being destroyed, a long, thin, black, curled butterfly tongue.

Freaked me out and I've never harmed an animal since that I didn't have to.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 9888565


I don't know if that is true in all cases. I have felt sad when I have seen insects die and when I have killed them. I think it is the realisation of how futile our control is over our own life and the recognition that all living things have some form of consciousness. Beauty is a perspective of structure.

If you started bawling your eyes out I would say yes, there is some major depression issues you might want to take care of.

Unless you like living with the realisation that at any moment you could snap. In that case ....welcome.

I think it's an underlying empathetic issue. :)
It's always sad and difficult to watch a living being die, especially when you are personally involved.. (you were, as it crawled onto your finger)

Take heart OP, you are a wonderfully empathetic person. This world needs more empathetic people.

I find myself rescuing spiders and crickets which I'm scared of by the way. This is fairly new for me though I too have always loved animals and small creatures. I believe it is a newly discovered respect for all creatures due to what is going on in our world.
I am far from depressed but am haunted by dead animals on the road,it hurts me very much.
If it's a sign of anything it's that you are an awesome,kind,loving person.

Re: i just wept over watching a moth die
I am actually fairly qualified to respond to this question, with a Ph.D. in a human services field. Not bragging, but want to let you know that.

You could be depressed, or there could be an underlying issue that you are suppressing. You might want to google "depression screening" or "depression checklist" and take a screening test, see if maybe you are depressed. If so, there are many ways to deal with it other than medication. Counseling can be quite effective. You might also look into St. John's Wort, which is considered safer than pharmaceuticals and is often very effective. Do your own research on it however.

It is also possible that you are tired/exhausted, or have a hormonal imbalance.

It is also possible that you are incredibly compassionate and spiritual, and understand that all life is connected. My mother says she feels deep, even physical empathy with animals and can feel their emotions when they are happy, distressed, scared, in pain, etc. She doesn't have this connection with people, only animals. You may have some form of this. I don't think she feels it with insects, but even if you don't pick up on their thoughts (which are probably pretty primal) you can still feel compassion for them, and that is admirable.

Peace to you and good luck.

Re: i just wept over watching a moth die
the lesson of the moth
By Don Marquis, in "archy and mehitabel," 1927


i was talking to a moth
the other evening
he was trying to break into
an electric light bulb
and fry himself on the wires

why do you fellows
pull this stunt i asked him
because it is the conventional
thing for moths or why
if that had been an uncovered
candle instead of an electric
light bulb you would
now be a small unsightly cinder
have you no sense

plenty of it he answered
but at times we get tired
of using it
we get bored with the routine
and crave beauty
and excitement
fire is beautiful
and we know that if we get
too close it will kill us
but what does that matter
it is better to be happy
for a moment
and be burned up with beauty
than to live a long time
and be bored all the while

so we wad all our life up
into one little roll
and then we shoot the roll
that is what life is for
it is better to be a part of beauty
for one instant and then cease to
exist than to exist forever
and never be a part of beauty
our attitude toward life
is come easy go easy
we are like human beings
used to be before they became
too civilized to enjoy themselves

and before i could argue him
out of his philosophy
he went and immolated himself
on a patent cigar lighter

i do not agree with him
myself i would rather have
half the happiness and twice
the longevity

but at the same time i wish
there was something i wanted
as badly as he wanted to fry himself
