I've heard that one should use spacing consistently, but I'm stuck on what to do here. I have the following box:
The padding above and below the five circles is not equal. Would it be more pleasing to add equal padding on both ends?
In the first image, I'm respecting the padding of the white box as a whole, making sure the content lines up against it. In the second image, I try to create more balance around the components above/below the gray line.
What's the more user-friendly way of going about this?
