My brother got up in my face earlier today because I refused to get him some more toilet paper and I pushed him away from me in self defense because I was scared that he was gonna come after me. He said that I assaulted him and that he’s gonna call the authorities on me and file an assault complaint against me when I was only defending myself from him. He says it wasn’t appropriate but in that moment I felt that it was appropriate but now I’m having second thoughts about it. When is it appropriate to push someone away from you if you’re feeling threatened? I’m 23 and he’s 29.
