Life can be hard to cope with, especially when you are paying rent and life expenses. Recently there have been many cases among college students stressed out with classes, work, and mental health negatively impacting them. However, they cannot go to a therapist because of the cost. What other options do they have?
One helpful method is living with friends. Not only will the rent be split up equally among the group, but a person can benefit from living with people who know them and can help them get through life.
Friends are sometimes even more likely to see a change in another friend’s mood before realizing it within themselves. In addition, friends living together are more likely to talk to one another as they see each other every day.
Moreover, talking to someone physically as a friend can reveal more of their troubles and concerns through body language, words, and tones.
Although living with friends cannot, of course, serve as a substitute for therapy, it can have the potential to improve your daily life with no service charge!
