How to Share a Bathroom

Although some annoying habits can be tolerated, they can start to accumulate over time, damaging our relationships. So, when you live with someone else and share a bathroom, things can get messy.

Yet, it's important not to sweat the small things when sharing a bathroom, by focusing on all the positive things they do and discussing these minor issues in a delicate manner. Remember to talk only about the specific behavior rather than an outright personality attack and explain why the issue bothers you. Then, prepare to listen to a conversation about your habits too.
