After the whole bot outbreak on twitter, I have been terrified of unfollowing people. I felt like if I unfollowed one person it would flag up and people would think that I wasn’t a trusted account blah blah blah.
But recently I’ve thought, you know what? Screw it.
Sometimes unfollowing people is the best thing you can do for yourself.
As a person, we are constantly growing and changing. Which means that our interests and relationships are constantly changing. So sometimes, we outgrow people, sometimes we outgrow accounts and sometimes we just need to move on from them. Which is why I believe that it is okay to unfollow people on instagram.
Now I am not talking about those people that we ALL HATE who just follow and unfollow people on the daily, just in order to hopefully grow their following. I am talking about the odd cleanse. Sometimes I just take to my insta account and go through my pics, delete old photos, and unfollow accounts that I am no longer interested in or have anything to do with.
Does that make me a bad person?
I think not.
I think its okay to cleanse your account and only fill your follow list with people who bring positivity to your life and get rid of people who you don’t want to see anymore.
