Apartment life question - How important has having extra space become to you bc of WFH?

Need help! I have two coworkers whom I love—they’re my best friends at work, make our toxic work environment bearable, and are always there for me. My issue is that they are really negative, and their pessimism is starting to affect my mood. One is going through some health issues, so I can kind of understand. The other just hates our workplace, and I’m really tired of her whining. What can I do? How can I approach this without losing my safe place to vent?
