Avoid Passive Aggressive Behaviors and Learn How to Deal With Them
If you're not used to expressing your emotions or communicating your needs, you may be tempted to behave passive-aggressively the first time your roommate leaves their dirty clothes on the bathroom floor. But there's nothing wrong with honestly and respectfully speaking your mind and asking for what you need to feel comfortable in your home. And if your roommate starts exhibiting passive-aggressive behaviors — like claiming to be "totally fine" and then sulking for days — you should feel free to bring up their behavior in a kind and respectful way. Talking it out is always best.
