Pictures Are Deceptive
More than half of millennials pretend that their relationship is happier than it actually is, according to a new study. The research suggests that almost 42% use the likes of Facebook and Instagram to give the impression that their relationship is perfect. People want attention, and positive stories are likely to be celebrated, liked and commented on. In other cases, some feel pressured to display success for fear of coming across as unsuccessful, and some people want to believe things are going well, so by curating a positive image they attempt to trick themselves into thinking things are fine.
