I observed with keen interest the way some of us packaged and tell lies, that we don’t even remember who or what we used to be. Our true identity becomes irredeemable. There is nothing wrong with adding spice, sugar and every nice to enhance our street credibility. But going overboard with it can sometimes be unhealthy and damaging on a long run. Due to the well packaged of this falsehood and lies Young women believe it has eaten deep into our system.
Lies abound in this era of social media, everyone has mobile phone and data at reach. People with simple minds can be easy cajoled by these social media lies and they what to meet up where their hands can’t reach. It may sometimes result in crimes. You may see some of them engaged in all sorts of funny activities just to meet up. Some may crumble during the process. We forgot that what works for miss Natasha “the slay goddess” is different from what works for Mr Rodney aka “I wear only designers”. You Miss Monica aka I want to belong will try to reap where you didn’t sow, Although, it’s nobody business how you choose to live your life. But the lies young women believe and tell themselves are silly sometimes.
I have witnessed a scenario in somewhere in Nigeria, where by a lady came into a salon and snatched wig, shoes, handbag from another lady. She called her all sorts of names related to a thief and debtors. It was an embarrassing scene, I could see evil grins in the faces of some other people around. Some persons are always happy at the misfortune of others, especially when they dislike you. From what I gathered the lady lies a lot and people know her well and how she intimidates others with her lies and lifestyle.
Packaging and lies are good, it sell anything and anyone faster. Imagine entering a restaurant with air-condition, well scented, waitress are pretty, and everything is sparkling, but the quality of food is below standards yet it’s expensive. And a restaurant where you sit in plastic chair, sweat profusely but the food is excellence and cheap. Most of us will choose the first restaurant over the latter. It is the same thing with packaging lies, It draws attention. Some people prefer attention to respect. There are both good things, depending on the kind of business we are into. But do not force piece that don’t fit. Do not push the button too much because of packaged lies and women don’t believe all the hype, because we tend to believe everything.
