How to deal with an overly sensitive person?

Anonymous
I feel like with certain people, I have to walk on eggshells just not to upset them. For instance, I told my friend she could not borrow money from me because she always does and I don’t have the money to just give away to her again. She got overly upset and now she thinks there’s “something wrong with our friendship and I don’t like her anymore.” She overthinks everything I say and interprets it in a bad way so I can’t ever feel like I can be honest or put up my personal boundaries with her. I always have to let her have her way.

How do you deal with overly sensitive people who get upset at everything?

She also takes it personally/gets upset if I don’t agree with her or have the same opinion as her on things
