No one wants to read about the positives in your life because people will feel envious of your good fortune, and in turn, feel miserable. No one wants to read about the negatives because they will feel as if the negativity will rub off on them. No one wants to see your pictures with friends and family because it amplifies their loneliness. But with your “selfies,” they are a different matter, because looking at your face gives them a sense of schadenfreude – a joyful reminder that their faces will always be a blessing compared to yours.
