IS NOWHERE SAFE!!?? This isn't really story related at all, but I'd just really like to vent and have some conciliation. So, I do have a facebook, and insisting on being my facebook friend, we have my arrogant, rude, abusive father. He's not that bad, but definetly someone who has to butt in on every little detail of what I say and do and post. So, simple solution, I get an instagram and start using that. It's great. It's easy to use, most of my friends use that over facebook, and I can swear and complain and post my depression as I please. Now tell me, if my father had said he never wants to use it, why THE FUCK did he make an account and follow me!? I get that he wants to see my art and shit, but he sees them when I make them, he doesn't need a fucking post, he doesn't need to hover over my shoulder every fucking minute of every fucking day, and of course I don't get any say in it whatsoever, because if I tell him "hey, this is an account for me to not have to censor myself for you, don't follow me," or block him, he's going to fly off the fucking handle, probably take my phone, and make life at home a living hell where he likes to slam every door, break every object, constantly yell, and beat my mother and our dogs. It's very likely that no one will read this or care, but can anyone tell me that I'm not being irrational!? I don't have anything to hide from him, I just don't want him up my ass every time I post something that he doesn't like. Does my privacy not exsist? Does it matter that I just need a place to escape from him? At all? I guess not.
Awhhh thanks hun. Maybe you could set up a different account and start posting your stuff there? Then you can DM all your followers to follow that account and try to convince him that your still using that account? Just my thought process. Anyways I didn’t bother to reply I did because I wanted to :)
@TheEpixUnicorn It's reassuring that you even bothered to reply, so thank you. There is a privacy setting for instagram, but I choose to keep that one open because I post all my art there. Unfortunately, the suggestion you gave wouldn't exactly work. hed very likely still freak out about it, so I guess thats just one more thing I don't have to be happy with anymore... Thank you again for replying. It's nice to be reassured that someone put enough thought into you to talk to you.

Hun, Don’t feel bad it’s not your fault. Don’t feel like this is your fault or your being irrational. If he really is the asshole you describe him to be you do deserve some time alone. Also can’t you contact Instagram about this or something? I thought there was an option to make your account private and you could only see it if the person let you follow them. I know you probably don’t wanna censor yourself but you can make a post or something saying that your making it private for this reason. Then you can just allow them to follow you but not your father? Anyways that’s just my idea. Just remember you have a huge fan base and we are here for you. Don’t feel bad I support you (:
