It is not something that most people think of doing no. I feel like you must be hurting alot within yourself to even think or want to hurt other people and animals. If you look within and be honest with your feelings you may feel alot of hate and unpleasant feelings in your heart. At the moment your only way of thinking you may feel better is to let out that hurt/pain on others. You may see it as some sort of release of your own internal pain and/or you want to inflict the pain you feel on others. Please remember that this is not the answer - it will only cause you more emotional hate and pain within yourself. It would be great if you could open up enough and talk to someone about how you are feeling and attempt to heal your pain in a more healthy way. You can do this - focus your energy on healing xx
