When living with someone, please make sure to set ground rules prior to moving in with the person, if possible. Common courtesy is not always at the forefront of everyone’s mind. Things that irritate them, may not irritate you, so please be willing to keep a positive open line of communication.
I’ve never been in the habit of telling folks how to live their lives, especially in their private spaces BUT when it starts to affect me, then I have to speak up. Granted I am passive aggressive as I try to please EVERYONE. I don’t want to rock the boat and make folks feel uncomfortable, so Im usually not as direct as I should be… however this is something I am working on. I’ll never do something to someone that I would not want done to me, Golden Rule (I think).
Unfortunately I am now in a situation where I am very unhappy about my living situation. So to keep my sanity I will be getting out of my living situation, or else I will surely loose my damn mind. Sometimes doing the right thing, only hurts you. I always preach that we have to take care of ourselves, mentally health is included!
