You're seeking validation of your real life from your online life. It bypasses all the hard work of figuring out what people actually feel in person and reduces it to a couple metrics (likes and views). Metrics are seductive but they aren't friendship.

Your instagram videos are damn impressive. I showed my wife and kid your last one. I figure if you recognize and understand where those endorphins are coming from you're probably okay.

And you're not posting about your goddamn MLM cosmetics nineteen times a day while also slathering in inspirational messages and avocado toast. Trust me - I know people with instagram problems.
