    I usually try and set it free but depends on the type of spider! If it's a really big one, I'll avoid that room until it disappears or find someone else to set it free!
    Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤

    For those of you who can't bear spiders in your house but don't want to kill them, spider catchers are a great invention (and also work for any insect / flying thing in my experience!)
    All behaviour is a need trying to be met.

    @Owl I relate to this ahaha. I don't mind the spiders if I can see them, but the moment they disappear... that's it, I'm out :D

    if it's tiny like a money spider or a house spider i'll just get it on some kitchen roll or something and let it outside. i know letting a spider outside still means certain death but i feel less responsible 😂

    if it's hairy or got teeth though

    I don't like spiders, but I can't do anything about that. I just call my dad to get it out
