There are many lines that we come across in our lives:
ones that we throw,
ones that we follow,
ones that we speak,
and then there is the line that is crossed.
It may seem that stepping over a line is the same as a line that is crossed, not so.
We may choose to step over that line thinking that no one is watching or believing it is such a tiny line that it is inconsequential, no harm no foul.
When a line has been crossed there is clear knowledge of what has been done but I must insert here – that person must also have a conscience.
Definition of the word conscience: the inner sense of what is right or wrong in one’s conduct or motives, impelling one toward right action
Definition of the word line: a group of words spoken together, a straight mark
That is how my year of 2018 ended.
A person whose “group of words” were spoken without an “inner sense of what is right or wrong”.
He finally crossed a line that I could no longer tolerate, a “straight mark” that cut deep enough for me to leave, leave it all.
