Living with other people takes effort. If you are a good roommate, people will want to live with you. Taking care of the house with your roommates help provide a stable environment for everyone. Divvying up the share of chores, will do wonders. If someone makes more money towards rent, perhaps they do less. It’s all about communication.
Whether you are living with roommates, or family, it is a shared space, so shared responsibility. Same with childcare, sometimes the mom may take care of, sometimes the dad. Taking responsibility, communication and trust are all important in maintaining healthy relations in the household. This also helps build bonds and makes people closer, and cuts down on conflict. Bottling emotions up is never healthy.
Therapy can be important, or sit-down meetings to discuss disagreements. Communication is the difference between salvaging a situation and having it be blown out of control. Living with people takes effort on everyone’s part. Be there for one another, and reap the benefits. Having those you can rely on is important.
