I Left Instagram for a Week and It Was the Best Thing for Me

We all know Instagram is part of our lives already, so it's really hard to leave it. I left Instagram for a week. At the start, it was hard because I wanted to see how many new people followed me, if my crush liked my post or my friends commented on my pics.

I left Instagram for a week, and I felt free, like, I didn't care about who comment or liked. It was, like freedom, without the worry about how many likes I got. But I really wanted to use it, so I waited the week, and I looked all of One Direction's and Hayes Grier's posts. I was desperate, and the day I started using Instagram, I used it for, like, an hour just looking at my friends' and crush's photos.

That's my experience, and something I would like to say is, you're beautiful the way you are and don't let how many likes you get in your pics on Instagram define how you feel about yourself.
