I am feeling pressure from home. I live with my girlfriend and she constantly hourds me about time with her, I mean constantly.
I work at nights and I train right before I go to work.
Anyways- I have been off for three days because of the holiday and she pressures me to sleep (asleep) with her. Honestly, sleeping with her turns my schedule around so much that I am extra tired and can not do much ever.
I falter and end up sleeping with her. Well, I wake up and it's an hour past my Judo training.
She is a priority to me, but when its unnecessary- why does she bother me. Okay okay- she lvoes me- thats great. I love her too. But honestly, just let me have my schedule. See me when you can, love me, and let me train!!!
I can't miss anymore training. It's making me go insane. I will end up resenting her for it. Ive talked to her about it, and she says, "I dont make you do anything, you choose what you do, not me." Thats great, but she pressures me to make the decisions I make.
I guess I just need to really have a heart to heart with her and ask her if "I" am what she really wants. Cause with me, comes martial arts. Its just the way it has to be.
