Knowing when to ‘quit’ or stop is a challenge.
We override our instincts, especially when the body is telling us, there is an ‘I’m not a quitter’ attitude that comes from our egoic mind that forces us to continue, even if it is causing us pain.
Equally, the soul is often crying out to stop an emotional or mental pain and suffering, but the mind sabotages that feeling with attachment to things and again something to prove to others.
The best solution is to simply listen and be in tune with our feelings from our very essence and not be attached to our mind and ego, stopping or quitting is easy then, just stop. That’s what we feel.
Feelings are overlooked by the ego and this only brings suffering mental and then physical too.
Quitting is a mental concept of the human mind, doing what we feel is following our soul.
