i love animals but i really don't want to adopt any domestic animal, we may have good times, but what if my pet dies before i die? i would feel miserable and i feel awful when animals are hurt so i guess i will get a tamagotchi instead or something
>>4308186Get a Digimon instead.
I'm feeling similarly and I usually just take care for them for family members and friends occasionally. I already had to let one go and a decade later I'm still not over it and most likely never will. I'm just really bad at stomaching this type of shit.
>>4308186Build a wildlife garden with pond, bird feeders, bird boxes, bug hotels and native plants. This way you can tend to animals without making them reliant on your constant care.
>>4308186>what if my pet dies before i die?Parrot
>>4308186Death is part of life. If it bothers you, stop living.
>>4308208i don't mean that, i know it is part of the human experience, but if i'm still alive and i experience the death of my beloved pet, i would feel disgusting and would end my life
>>4308186You'll get over it, unironically man up. Nothing lasts forever
>>4308210Get it over with then. Everything you love will die before you.
>>4308214Why are /an/ posters such miserable fuckers?
>>4308224what about what he said is miserable? The miserable person is OP saying he's gonna kill himself if something he loves dies before him. How the fuck can you get through life like this? Things WILL die before you, it's reality, and it's not really that dramatic, you'll get over it after griefing.You need to really grow up and stop this melodramatic shit

>>4308230are you seriously trying to say that he's not being a cringe emo faggot for saying>i wouldnt be able ot take it if something I loved died before me... I would end my lifeand you're trying to make it seem like i'm the euphoric socially maladjusted person here?
>>4308231>are you seriously trying to say that he's not being a cringe emo faggot>and you're trying to make it seem like i'm the euphoric socially maladjusted person here?
>>4308235maybe one day you'll be old enough to actually witness the death of someone or something close to you and understand it's not the end of the world, but that day is far off since you're posting like a 13 year old /b/tard
>>4308224>>4308230>>4308235which fucking board are you people coming from ?
>>4308186I like Tamagotchis OP, they're pretty neat. Maybe get some plants? They're pretty low maintenance "pets"Also >>4308202 is a great option for "pets" you don't even have to take care of and your garden will be full of nature you can go out and look at any time
>>4308228Not when scientists finally cure aging, you and even your dog can live forever when that happens
>>4308210then dont have a pet unless you're planning to die in the next few years, hard to find pet animals that live over 80 other than parrots or tortoises? idk
>>4308315redditors being contrarian for the sake of it>>4308388living forever destroys the earth
>>4308186Get the fuck over it pussy, you could be giving a homeless animal a good life and feel rewarded by it but you're too selfish and scared to feel grief, which you will at some point anyway unless you live a totally hermetic existence.
>>4308186Nice blog post
