There are very few people who can truly master multiple instruments. Most of us spend a lifetime mastering one. I'm guessing you aren't a musical savant either or you wouldn't be struggling with this. I'm a bassist but I play guitar to help me write songs and for fun. I imagine what I would play on bass while I play guitar and vice versa. It makes the transition easier and makes the idea more of a cohesive thought. Sometimes I'll play a bassline on guitar I never would have thought of on a bass.

It may be easier for you to pick one instrument as your main focus (you played guitar for 7 years right? That's a good start...) and play others to add to your growth as a musician. Don't worry about mastering them all. My guitar playing is but playing guitar has improved me as a bassist.
