Understanding boundaries

The beginning of a new shared living arrangement can feel a little awkward for all people. Establishing boundaries can significantly help everyone feel at ease.

Personal boundaries are the way we express what is okay and not okay with us. Understanding and establishing boundaries are important to feeling comfortable in a shared living arrangement.

One of the most effective ways Hosts and Guests can foster an enjoyable shared living arrangement is to clearly understand what makes each person feel uncomfortable or stressed. If you begin feeling uncomfortable or stressed, it may mean that you are approaching the line between what is okay and what is not okay. Self-awareness and self-respect are vital to maintaining healthy boundaries.
