Art, like Morality, consists in drawing the line somewhereGilbert K. Chesterton
There are things in our life, we should know when to draw the line. It’s just simply means to know when we had enough, when we should leave the table, and when we should put an end on something.
For instance, if your boss asked you to lie in order to sell the products, should you obey or should you draw the line?
With our values and principle, we know that it is definitely not ethical to lie while selling something. However, sometimes we are scare of other people to the point that we just obey what they say.
Here’s the thing, drawing the line doesn’t mean that we are bad person, or we are being disobedient. However, it shows that we have values, we have boundaries, and we have certain priorities in our life.
Hence, when there are things you know that are against certain good principle in life, that ‘s the time we should have the courage to draw the line. The courage to reject any bad and harmful things that may make you lose yourself.
Remember, drawing the line to certain things in life doesn’t make you a bad person, it’s just simply means you hold certain values that is dear to you.
