I was left alone a lot as a child and found comfort in drawing. All of my life since I have enjoyed creative pursuits like sewing, creating collages, painting, decorating. I have never enjoyed working outside my home. Sometimes I feel like I neglect my adult children and grandchildren because I enjoy spending most of my time being creative and don't need others to be happy. (I have a husband with whom I relate very well).

I wish I could be like you. It sounds like you're able to block out all the noise in life and focus on the creative task in front of you. That actually sounds incredibly therapeutic.

Quite the opposite. I feel guilty for socializing when I have creative projects to finish. I feel like I should be more productive instead of getting pulled in 10 different directions.

I don't think you should feel that way. Guilty? i mean its not measured by the time you spend with people. Hell it's not about the moments you do spend its how you make people feel. I have had people spend not even 5 minutes and have meant more to me then some of my best friends or my family. When i used to feel guilty about that i realize that you can't truely compare who means more to you because well thats like saying i refer eating wood over the pizza i so desperately hate in my mind. It's about quality and the deeper meanings. Besides what good is sitting there feeling guilty if you cant spend any time with them because you have gone crazy because you dont work on your projects? i simply think you need to make sure you dont neglect anyone and dont become too addicted to it.Be mindful and find balance.
