Is there a way to kindly ask my friend to stop being overly positive around me?

Lord. We’ve lived together previously. I’ve also helped her when she needed it. Her level of cheer is likely due to her recent depression over the past few years. I’ve been talking on the phone with her less in the past few months but hadn’t realized why. After a few days was like “oh shxt, THIS is why”. Many people know that someone’s personality is stronger in person vs over the phone/ when I was living in another city so hadn’t even been in her presence. I’m not saying I hate the girl and want to slit her throat. Just came to the relationship advice sub to fish for insight. I also get on her nerves. I never said I was God.
