The pressure to slay

Social media is awesome. It helps us to connect with friends across the globe and keeps us up to date with the changing trends. It is news, entertainment and socializing all at once.

Fashion is awesome too. It is an outlet for human expression and imagination, and clothes are elevated from just a bare covering to a thing of art. We can all appreciate a well-made outfit and the effort put into making it.

The combination of social media broadcasting our pictures, videos and stories at an instant and fashion has birthed the phenomena of slaying.

Slaying, I will simply say, is eliciting jealousy and admiration from others. It has become the obsession of most women on social media, and this leads to pressure to always turn out in the newest clothes and most flashy makeup, showing off expensive bags and accessories in order to show a life of affluence, often superficial. Yes, some people are actually wealthy enough to never wear an outfit twice and get into the most elite parties and shops. However, most people are not, and the overwhelming pressure to be like others and show up balling is making people buckle under the anxiety to belong.

This pressure has led many ladies to debt and destruction. Materialism is on the rise, and the fact that more and more impressionable teenagers have access to the internet has greatly contributed to the decimation of their mental health and moral values. Being exposed to the pressure to slay so young makes them, desperate, targets for opportunists and abusers.

In the end, trends come and go. Nothing is permanent, and we should live with that philosophy in mind. This will make it so much easier to walk past that popular dress or expensive pair of shoes and keep you out of debt.
