When you're feeling down, make a post (not story) on Instagram. People usually like your post when they see it, and you get a notification every time a person does it, kind of like telling you "you're doing great"!
On the other hand, when you post a story, people usually don't reply to people's story unless it's really good. So posting stories usually makes you feel sad because you think your content is not that great.
Or maybe just call someone, idk.
