My 2 close friends borrowed a handsome amount from me without mentioning any deadline and that time I've had enough so I gave the amount, it's been 5 months when I gave the amount but now I need my money back but they both don't talk about the borrowed amount.
I am feeling very uncomfortable to initiate this talk from my side but now I need my amount back.
Note: I don't want to sound like selfish that I want my money back without taking care of their financial conditions.
How should I go for this? Should I indirectly make them know that I need my money back? Or I should directly ask them to return? Or any other way?
