Wow, you sound like me in many ways. I too am an introvert and have a hard time sharing what my deepest emotions are. I am very much a peacemaker too.
I am a part time college student doing an apprenticeship program one day a week. Just started last week and already have assignments. I am a church musician and today I started choir practise for the new season with my Sunday group. I also have a childrens choir that I direct and it starts up this week. I have also started up a funeral choir and they will practise twice a month. And to top it off, I am one of 5 musicians for our parish and as a team we do music planning - we meet this week as well, so I have 4 weeks of music planning to do ahead of our meeting.
I love music and school, but I also have to fit in some work hours as a call-in support worker. Plus, I am trying to keep up with household duties. There are a couple of other volunteer positions I have that are hard for me to drop - been a Beaver Scout leader for over 25 years and keep helping them out whenever I can, Also have done in-school mentoring. Somehow I do manage to fit everything into my schedule and still have time to visit with friends.
I am rather stressed dealing with some of my family members, but I will not try to explain all the details - just have to 'let go and let God' - easier said than done though.
