I am going to share how you can easily recover your Instagram account under various situations. And well, you can thank me later.
When will your Instagram account get disabled?
Some of these reasons could be that you were involved in some illegal activity on the platform, engaged in hate speech, shared images involving nudity or graphic violence, or even if you used unauthorised third-party apps to access Instagram.

Also note that after 30 days of your account getting disabled, it can be deleted. On top of that, your account can only be recovered in case you think it was disabled by mistake.

Can I recover my Instagram account if it was deleted?
Unfortunately, if your account gets disabled and post the 30-day window it is deleted, then there is no way to get it back.
I would suggest that if you want a break from Instagram, then disable it so that you can access it back. And make sure to check the notification emails from Instagram which inform you that your account will permanently get deleted.
