Much kinder way of saying someone’s being dramatic?

Someone is in a panic and dramatically being sensitive, confrontational, maybe a bit attention seeking.

What would one say to very concisely explain to them, to settle them, how it is they’re behaving? Something far less demeaning and unhelpful than dramatic!


I’d use – overreacting



verb: gerund or present participle: overreacting

respond more emotionally or forcibly than is justified.

“they are urging people not to overreact to the problem”
