People Are not good to each Other / Menschen sind nicht gut Zueinander / As pessoas não são boas um para Outro / Las personas no son buenas entre Sí

On the social media stage, looking right seems the only thing that matters.

The concept is synonymous with self-preoccupied, self-centered, self-obsessed - and even egotistical and selfish. People who have the tendency to use more self-referential terms (I, me, myself) tend ...
