Stubborn and ardent clinging to one's opinion is the best proof of stupidity.” 
Michel de Montaigne, French Renaissance Philosopher

Stubbornness is a steadfast refusal to change your opinion, attitude, or actions despite persuasion or reasoning. It is a resolute insistence on maintaining your own viewpoint or way of doing things, often to the frustration of others. Stubbornness can stem from both deep-seated belief in one's own correctness or a fear of admitting vulnerability or weakness. The card of Stubbornness urges you to examine the roots of your resistance and consider whether flexibility and openness might lead to greater understanding and growth. If someone around you is being stubborn this is your confirmation that it's not your imagination and it might be time for a frank discussion.

Stubborn Mantra I release resistance and flow with the natural course of life.
