Dr. Romance Video: How to Deal with Partying Roommates

Second, give an "adult time out" anytime your roommate is negative and critical: emotionally retreat into politeness. Be very pleasant, but distant __ say "Yes, please" "No, thank you" and respond politely to any request, but don't share any personal information. This usually causes a negative person to snap out of it. Third, ignore any negative thing that is said __ just treat it as if it didn't happen. In this way, you don't reward it, and the other person will eventually stop. I also use prayers and affirmations to help me let go of the negative thoughts. Sending a blessing to the critical person, that he or she be healed, can be very liberating.
