Aaaaahhhhhhhh I need to reiterate how I really, really can’t stand those posts snarking about how op just lost a follower because I find them really distressing? I’ve stopped following people for really simple reasons, like they were reblogging a lot of drama that was starting to get really emotionally draining and I was really only following them for art or fandom stuff or they post a LOT and it took me forever to scroll through my dash or the subjects they posted about frequently started getting me seriously down and left me feeling kind of distracted during class and stuff.
So, as I’ve said before, because the problem was mine, not theirs, and they’re free to post what they want I just silently unfollow them and just bookmark their page to view it in my own time when I feel I can handle it. And I go back and get “Hey seems some moron couldn’t handle my latest post, hurhur!! TAG: you’re too awful for my blog anyway” sort of bullshit and it seriously makes me feel fucking AWFUL, because trust me— If I unfollow you, I’ve probably agonised to the point of some serious stress (thanks various anxiety issues!) over doing it just because I was worried about how it would look and ARGH.
Just… just don’t do that. You don’t know why someone unfollowed you. You don’t know if they’re still watching your page in their own time. You don’t know if it even was ABOUT your latest post (chances are it wasn’t, actually!) and you might actually be making really nasty insinuations about someone who just wanted to tailor their dash to be a bit friendlier towards their current frame of mind and issues. So don’t.
