In life, there are times when we need to draw the line if nothing else than for our own health and safety.
Whether it's the noise of the news media, or the internet in general, politics, or family or work matters. It's important to know where we stand or we'll fall for anything.
We build strong character and peace of mind when we stay on our side of the line that we draw for ourselves.
