I think it's a must to give up on something that doesn't work. The only thing I look, if my financial state becomes bigger/lesser and that is the only true gauge for me. I don't see any results when I'm trading intraday, but I see the results when I swing-trade on daily bars in the equity market.
It is no secret for anyone that in trading comes only poor people who seek the way out of the rat race and poverty as myself. And for me, it's only about money. Yeah, yeah if I'm trading only because of money I'll go broke etc. and bla bla bla someone can say. Though I see results and don't give a shit.
Trading itself is simple as the rag. I have my production method and I'm executing it and nothing more and I don't feel absolutely anything in doing it. Of course, you can't grow your capital forever because of liquidity limitations.

In the end, I think if someone does not see any financial results let's say at max in 2 years of time, it's the must to give up on active trading and become more of an investor.
For money-making, there are still other opportunities like: to become a streamer of some shit, porn, adventure trips, etc...

Better is not to limit yourself only to one thing: I think true traders not only trading the markets lol.
They are investing in property+land, conduct legal/illegal businesses in real life, different online projects.
And at some point, the market itself for them becomes more like a "pension", as the earnings from more stable activities cover all their needs.
