VC To not act on something for fear of offending someone is ridiculous, and offensive In its own right.
You said she is emotional, which to me says she is in touch with her emotions and expresses them.
You, however, profess To be uncomfortable with the way she expresses them and are attempting to rob her of a chance to express them. You have no idea how she will react, but you aren’t even giving her the chance to process it.
You are in a catch-22.
The only way you can let her know how you feel is to tell her, which will cause her to react in some way. This will likely be temporarily unpleasant to you. She will then make a choice on how to act from there.
And then you will be able to process her reaction and decide if she handled it well or not.
Until you tell her, though, as honestly as you can, you are denying her the ability to work through this with you.
