That's right- butterflies. It's known as Lepidopterophobia and it includes moths and other creepily winged insects.

1. People don't understand when you tell them you're scared of butterflies (aka monsters in disguise)

2. They try to convince you they're actually beautiful creatures

Yup, I've heard it a million times before. Nope, doesn't make me any less scared.

3. When that fails, they try explaining that butterflies can't physically harm you, so you shouldn't be scared of them

Via giphy.com

Oh really!? My irrational fears have disappeared. I wonder why no one has ever told me this before!

4. They then try to understand where your phobia comes from...

... forcing you to relive terrifying moments in your mind.

5. You realise there aren't many people like you

Lepidopterophobes unite!

Also, I can't even say that word.

6. You will NEVER EVER understand people who tattoo months and butterflies on themselves

MOTHS of all things!

I'm looking at you Harry Styles and that girl I saw once in the library.

7. In fact the realism of these tattoos is starting to worry you

You mean I have to worry about butterflies on people AND in the air!?

8. That's right, because even images of the flying devils scare you

OH SHIT A PICTURE OF A BUTTERFLY! RUNNNNN!!!!

9. You have a love/ hate relationship with the summer

Yesss finally some sunshine and park fun... OH NO WAIT I'M SURROUNDED!

10. Which also means you can't open windows at night with any lights on in case moths fly in

And fly in they will. Unless you either live in total darkness or die of heat.

The struggle is real.

11. Your friends always use your phobia to prank you

Via giphy.com

Haha guys. Still not funny.

12. Ultimately though, you learn to suck it up and accept these things are part of the food chain or whatever

Via giphy.com

Because you know no matter what people say, you're still more beautiful than those winged monsters.
