A mouse was cowering in a corner when another mouse walked by.
"What are you looking at?" the mouse asked.
"A cat." the cowering mouse replied.
"I am not afraid of cats," the brave mouse said.
When the brave mouse walked around the corner, he pointed at the "cat".
"You've been cowering at a bush." the brave mouse told the scared mouse.
Moral: Fears are only as big as you make them
