When you have to fire an employee, never say, “This is hard for me too.” Even if it was a very difficult decision to terminate the employee and even if the conversation is extremely uncomfortable for you, it will never be as difficult as it is for the employee.

Don’t bring your feelings into the conversation. Instead, keep the focus on the employee.
