Is it Normal to Want to Murder Somebody?

This is a fairly new desire I have been feeling. I fantasize about murder almost everyday, whether it's tearing limbs off, slitting throats, choking people, stabbing people, or torture, it's recurring. It isn't necessarily toward people that I hate or have betrayed by, because in some way I sort of hate everybody. Strangely enough, these urges are toward anybody but my family. I have future plans; I get good grades and already have a career thought out. I am afraid that I will give in to these desires one day, and getting away with murder is nearly impossible. I have had dreams about vivid, brutal murder before, but they aren't too common. One of my recent ones was about choking children. I know it's wrong, but I don't feel like it is. I don't want to like it, but I do. I have seen photographs and videos of murder before, and it never really triggers a reaction from me. I am a white female, not on medication, I have not been diagnosed with any mental disorders, I have never been through any trauma or abuse, but I feel like something is wrong with me. I am too afraid to tell a professional, but I have a feeling that I have some sort of mental disorder. I apologize for how poorly written and scattered this was, collecting my thoughts is difficult. Please take this seriously, this is not a joke and I am legitimately asking for your opinions. Thank you.

Lots of people have some pretty strange or morbid desires. Having thoughts like that doesn't make you a bad person, though obviously acting on them would. Try your best not to dwell on the thoughts or encourage them.

However, if you really think you're in danger of acting on this stuff, then you MUST see a professional.

Are you the same one who posted that story a few days ago about wanting to kill people?

To be honest, I think it's pretty normal to think about it. Everything I know thinks about killing someone all the time. If you actually go kill someone, that is not normal. The thought of it alone is totally normal.

If you are a sadist, just kill yourself. You'll be doing a service for society.

Maybe see a psychologist if you feel this is a serious problem. Or if it doesn't affect your daily life it'll likely subside eventually. It's up to you.

Normal to think about murdering a specific person who " deserves" it. Fantasizing about mangling random strangers? Not good:(

I think that YOU should be killed. You're dangerous and need to be shot in the head.

I understand your desires to some degree. I have urges similar to you, but not torture or children. Just killing and no one in particular. I'd like to fantasise about it and plan it all through. Like you, Am I here for the same reason. I don't know what to do with it. My parents would think it's another fase and how could someone possibly help me when they don't understand. I've told it to a close friend and he doesn't understand.
