don’t be scared, they can’t see, to them you are a warm soft perch in a world of scary things
Well, they can see. But only what they need to see, which isn’t much. They are harmless, and have no conception of who and what you are.
I hope people understand that when they interact with insects: that the world is huge and scary for them, and they are tiny and incredibly powerless. But you share something with them - you are both brimming and pulsing with life, you are both autonomous beings, both at the center of your own worlds, just trying to survive in a hostile universe.
Being kind to an insect is fleeting, and in the end doesn’t affect very much, but to that insect, in that moment, it affects their entire existence.
