Fear makes the wolf bigger than he is
— German proverb
What do you need to do to make the wolf look normal sized?
I guess I'm looking for the appropriate word to fill in this sentence:
... makes the wolf look the size he actually is
Neither love nor courage seem appropriate which seem to be the standard opposites suggested for fear.
Edit: replaced "as big as he is" (based on Max Williams' comment, as this could as equally be "as small as" which is not quite what I was thinking of) with "the size he actually is"
