I've deactivated my instagram, idk how I feel about it. on the one hand there's loads of people I've met abroad and online that I wouldn't be in touch with if I deleted it entirely, but on the other hand... is a relationship that dies after social media is gone really worth the time I spend on a platform like insta? mh.

@talessio Stick to it! I deleted my insta - it was the hardest for me to get rid of for similar reasons.

But, I let ppl know I was leaving and learned who actually cared to reach out. This might be something you consider - give yourself time during this deactivation period to assess who you really connect with and your quality of life without insta.

I bet you'll notice that you have more to appreciate without it. :BlobCatHeart:

@talessio If you exported your contacts, then there's at least a chance of finding them again in the future. On or off Instagram. Why not keep Instagram if you're not hundred percent sure yet?

@JohanEmpa I’ve only deactivated it for the moment, to see if I miss it, etc. I’m not a fan of how it’s run and how it affects my time and mental health - but I am also not a fan of not being able to keep in touch with people :( idk
