Do people need a limits? Once, scientists carried out an experiment. Everyone knows that kids don't like any borders, specially in kindergarten. So our scientists cleared all fences around the garden, and the place for play was absolutely opened. Then they opened the door for little ones and said: " guys.."
Interesting, before they were begging to throw these fences away and were broking it all the time when they had an opportunity, and now they are standing with no idea what to do. Kids were standing with a very scared facial expressions. They didn't play at all. 
It's very popular to say about a freedom nowadays...
But. .,what do you think about a limits or borders in life?
Should people have some limits in their life and would it be beneficial for them?

Of course we need limits, even if we try to push them a little bit every time.
The children from the experiment tried to push the limits and explore the world behind them while being safe - protected by the fences. Disabling the limits resulted in both losing their interest (there were nothing to push or even protest against) and being overpowered by the fear of the unknown. That's how I see it. Their world became too big for them. There is a kind of joke here. Two cats walking through the desert. Then one of them sais: 'I don't understand this type of a litter box. It's over my head.'
And in our adult life? We have a lot of limits and we feel safe with them, because we trust that everyone has to respect them. We often try to push them a little, feeling comfortable with it ('Look how I cheated them. I'm a wise guy.'). But disabling these limits would take us this satisfaction and some of us would try to go too far - even when it means denying other people their rights. We have many examples of such behaviour in history. 
Another problems with limits is, that they are sometimes ill-defined, unclear, not equal to everyone. And this leads to decrease in the feeling of being safe (what many of us experienced recently). Then we behave like those children from the experiment  - staying, staring at each other and not knowing what to do. But it's another story...
Concluding this I would like to see the limits easy to keep within them, well defined though slightly pushable, guaranteeing us maximum safety in everything we do in our lives.

Humans are like hamsters. They are limited to the pacing of the wheel that they are attached to. Running faster will give an illusion of achieving freedom. But it only insinuates how trapped they truly are.

Everybody have limits I suppose, for most people the main ones are Criminal Code and 10 Commandments (or their equivalent in other religions).

We are all influenced by our culture, environment, family from the very beginning of our lives.

We all already have limits, it's inevitable.

You brought a big issue that makes me thoughtful. Let me tell you my idea. It is easy to live with limits. For example, if you gave opportunities to work and you choose one from three jobs. It's not so difficult to choose. On the other hand, if you were told that you could have any jobs but you would have to start from the first of everything. It would be sometimes difficult.

If you had limits in your life, you could not find your incredible possibility.

If you let sky be the limit, you would have to build up your tower to the sky with your endless efforts, which enriches your mind.


I like your comment a lot. It's cool. 

Good topic always, Sarah. Thank you. I enjoyed a lot.

 Strange kids! Unbelievable! When I was a kid in a kindergarten we climbed over those fences outside the territory to a street and a neibour school.
