Be affectionate: Communication is the key to hold on to any great relationship. Give your friend some time and then try to talk out your differences. Listen to them first and then tell them why you reacted the way you did. Do not get overwhelmed and say anything that is going to hurt them further. Be calm and expressive.(Unsplash)
