A little background:
I wanted to button up my sleeve, so naturally I moved both of my arms up to my chest level and that is when my friend thought I wanted to hit him so he took a defensive reflex.
The thing is this scenario happened multiple times when he would just take a defensive reflex in such situations.
I said "stop being paranoid", But a friend of me argued that paranoia is not the word to describe this situation. I kind of agree, paranoia is an overstatement. But what other alternatives do I have ?
