When you overcome the initial nerves and are ready to have that conversation you must avoid starting it over the phone, neither text nor talk. Honor the friendship by suggesting an in-person meeting. This will also limit drama or public outbursts. Come to this talk from a place of peace and empathy but also from a place of self-worth. This will allow you to be considerate of the other person’s feelings while still putting your interests first.
