Fears can hold your Sims back from living their best lives in The Sims 4. Whether it’s the fear of public speaking, fire or even ghosts, these phobias can prevent them from experiencing new adventures and opportunities.
If you want to help your Sims overcome their fears, read on. This article will address this common problem and provide practical solutions. So let’s dive in and see how you can help your Sims live fearlessly.
How to get rid of fears in Sims 4
In addition to standard and acquired traits that you develop over time, fears are dynamic traits that appear in your Simology panel. In The Sims 4, when fears take control of daily activities, Sims feel fear the same way real people do. They will get “Negative Moodlets” if their fears persist, which can have a detrimental effect on how well they do in the workplace, in class and in general.
Below is a list of all the fears found in the base game and ways to eliminate them.
Additional methods to get rid of fears
Instead of gaining new fears daily, like in The Sims 2, your Sims will gradually learn them as they go through life. The conventional method for Sims to overcome fears is to face their worries.
Certain Sims may be afraid of living an unfulfilled existence and need to spend some time to realize their dream to face and overcome those fears. However, if you want to focus on other elements of the game or simply want a less demanding experience, consider these options:
“The Fear-Be-Gone” potion
The “Fear-Be-Gone” potion will instantly make your Sim’s fears disappear. For 300 points you can buy this drink from the “Rewards Store”. It is important to note that the “Fear-Be-Gone” potion is only a temporary solution and does not address the underlying causes of your Sim’s fears.
Turn off the “Wants and Fears” system
In The Sims 4, players can turn off the “Wants and Fears” system if they want to focus on other aspects of the game. Follow these steps to turn off the Wants and Fears system:
- Click on the three dots in the upper right corner of the main menu and then select “Options”.
