Struggles...

I work a very demanding full time job.  It consumes my life and is super stressful and I try not to take it home with me, especially when we have my boyfriend's son with us.  I've also been an avid ballroom dancer for the last two years.  I make time for this hobby as it seems to be the only thing in my life that keeps me sane.



Lately, I've been getting vibes from my boyfriend that he feels like he's being neglected.  When we first talked about moving in together, I told him that I wouldn't be home much; I work until 7 or 8pm on a regular basis and I have a very active social life outside of that.  I have offered several times to teach him to dance and to get him into lessons so he can learn, too, but he has refused.  Dancing just isn't his thing.  I feel like I have every right in the world to continue doing what I've been doing, but I don't think it's fair to my boyfriend's son for my boyfriend to be making everything I do seem so negative.  It's been maddening, to be honest.  I really hope I'm not being selfish.  I know they wouldn't like the crazy, stressed out me and I definitely wouldn't want to become that by abandoning my dancing.  It's my stress relief...  You know?
