Why is the phrase “crossing the line” so common these days?
I believe that due to the recent happenings that have occurred in the world, we may be becoming desensitized to all the violence and chaos.We may forget where morality tells us that what’s happening is wrong and accept the hatred as a normal occurrence.
We cannot allow that to happen. We need to call out inherently wrong ideas, mindsets, concepts and laws/legislature. The people who govern need to be aware of the consequences of crossing the line.
This hypothetical line is also present in relationships, where two adults will agree upon what actions would provoke a break-up (such as cheating). It helps in establishing the actions that will help maintain that relationship.
It is important to establish boundaries in all areas of life – government, relationships, work, business etc…
