Why are the Americans lying?


We live in the world where it is the trend to look and act cool so that no one is left behind. In the rage of social media we all have the desire to be updated with trends and what’s going on.

As per the survey it was found, ‘With the modern pressures of Social Media, people feel as they have to prove themselves to others which is so bad. Life isn’t a competition and just because someone else is doing something doesn’t mean that we too have the need and desire to do the same.

Travellers from US are also lying about the alcohol consumption and the money they spend on the same. And it is so saddening to realize that people consider alcohol as a mean to show off and appear cool. Most of the people confessed that they never say tell the truth about their trip if it goes disaster for the sake of appearing happy and content. A lot of people also agreed to the fact that they always exaggerate their vacation and never actually tell the real story behind the vacation.
