So unfortunately I will leave this forum too.
I believe I could be a stumbling block for not saying everything. I may consider joining later if I  think God wants me to join.
I was advised by a bishop not my diocese which I asked him to close my Facebook but the main reason is because I said on this forum that I would repent of befriending some people

Though I don't think you have to listen to any bishop that's not your actual bishop of your actual diocese, (someone correct me if that's wrong)...
it might not be bad advice regardless. Probably some I should consider myself.
Go with God.

Wishing to grant pardon for ancient debts, he who cancels the debts of all people came himself and dwelt among those who were estranged from his divine grace; and tearing apart the record of sin, he hears from everyone: Alleluia.

Sometimes a break from social media is a good reset, though it is ultimately your choice. 
May God guide you in whatever you choose to do.  :)
Is any of the above Orthodox?  I have no idea, so there’s that.

Pray for me, a sinner.

Thankyou. You are right I think it is a great place to get support and help one another. I however think I am a stumbling block. I may consider joining social media again later

I decided better I stay on other groups than keep leaving and coming back. I am probably better off with people than alone as long as being with people is less sinful than being alone. But I don’t know. I may change my mind. Hopefully not wrongly
