Poem for the episode - I Quit

 I Quit

by Scott Bryant-Comstock

It takes way too much energy to try to not quit

So I quit

There I said it

I quit

The backlash of shame and guild will be intense, but will fade quickly

Sameness

Numbness

Quitting

Such a relief in quitting

I don't have to work anymore at not quitting

All of the time and energy I spent trying not to quit is now mine to use as I see fit

What a relief

I quit

But

What if I don't quit?

What if I just quit investing all of my time and energy in not quitting?

What if I stop worrying about not quitting?

What if I stop fearing not quitting?

What if I stop attaching shame, anger, sadness, regret and self worth to the act of not quitting?

What if I stop making "quitting" the thing that dominates my life?

What if I don't quit?

What if I don't think of quitting as success or failure?

What if quitting, as a concept, does not exist?

What if I don't think of quitting at all?

Inhale

Quiet

Stillness

Calm

I feel the universe course through my body

Exhale

Quiet

Stillness

Calm

I feel the universe course through my body

What if quitting, as a concept, does not exist?

What if I don't think of quitting at all?

What if I focus only on things that inspire me?

What if

I just be at one with the universe?

If I do that, then there is nothing to quit

I am at one with the universe

I am at peace

There is no quit

Only is

More about the host, Scott Bryant-Comstock:
For the past 40 years, my journey as a mental health advocate has spanned working at a suicide and crisis center, as a therapist in an outpatient clinic, an in-home family therapist, a state mental health official, Board Chair for a county mental health program, and a national reviewer of children’s mental health systems reform efforts. As the Children’s Mental Health Network (2009) founder, I lead the Network’s efforts to grow a national online forum for the exchange of ideas on how to continually improve children’s mental health research, policy, and practice. Through it all, I remain optimistic that the voice of advocates can, and will, be heard. We need strong advocates now, more than ever!

In 2019 I had a Kundalini awakening, which dramatically changed my life for the better and put me in touch with the universe in a way that I had not realized before. "My purpose on this earth is clear: to be of service to others and nourish their quest to become the better human they strive to be.”
