He ended up blocking me even though I quit talking to him. I was gonna block him but figured I’d stand strong and not do it. This is instagram so it’s not like I can block him back. I feel so powerless so wanted someone’s opinion. Should I make my profile private in case he ever gets the urge to look at my page? Almost like taking the power back? Any opinions? I just feel... dumb. I wish i would have just blocked him first but felt like that would have been too dramatic. Not anymore.

It wouldn't be dramatic or wrong. Just not neccesary. I would say just not block them if just for the simple fact that if you decide later that you made the wrong decision, you don't have to be bothered with unblocking them. But if he starts harrassing or stalking you, then yeah, definitely block them1

This depends on the situation. If you fear him knowing about your life, then make it private. If what you're feeling is more along the lines of anger, resentment or anything other than fear, then leave it as it is. Being able to show that you've moved on with happier pictures is more mature. But as I said before, if you have sincerely fear that he will use those pictures against you and/or find you, and you cannot block him, then make it private. This is coming from someone who has experienced fear of an ex and chose to block on Facebook but keep Instagram open.2
