Thinking of giving up my DSLR for a phone

This is perhaps the weirdest post I've made here.  I have a Canon 5D Mark III that I have loved and used for years.  I have a bunch of lenses, some flashes, and some remote controls.  However, in trying to minimize my lifestyle I find it bulky, heavy, and just overwhelming to use.  I don't enjoy it anymore.

I also have a pixel 3 phone that takes amazing photos and uses post processing tricks to get better results than some of what I have with the Mark III.  It's just smaller, more convenient, and easier to get results that look like what I want.  I know this is all about my abilities and my willingness to work at things, but right now I just don't know if it's worth keeping all this stuff just to take portraits now and then.  I also know the image quality isn't the same, with the post processing work coming out much worse in print.

I wish there was a compromise.  Thoughts?
