The Fear of Unfulfilled Dreams is something that your character may develop over time in Sims 4. But what is this Fear, and how do you address it?

Sims 4 is all about creating a virtual character and living a simulated life in a virtual environment. As your character goes about their day to day activities, you will come across a lot of interesting events in the game, quite similar to real life situations.

Some of the events can cause your Sims to develop certain Fears, and the Fear of Unfulfilled Dreams is one of them.

So how do you deal with the Fear of Unfulfilled Dreams in The Sims 4, and why does this happen?

How to deal with the Fear of Unfulfilled Dreams in The Sims 4

In The Sims 4, your character will develop the Fear of Unfulfilled Dreams if you do not take care of their wishes.

While playing Sims 4, you will see thought bubbles appear over your character’s head. If you hover over these bubbles, you will notice that these bubbles display what your character wants.

When your character develops this Fear, you will receive a notification that will say that your character feels unfulfilled and dissatisfied with how life is going. They will occasionally become upset with the direction of their life.

There are a few ways in which you can solve this issue. They are as follows:

Fulfill their wishes

The best way to address the Fear of Unfulfilled Dreams in Sims 4 is to start fulfilling what your character wants. However, if your Sim has developed the Fear, fulfilling their Wishes is only a part of the solution.

After you’ve fulfilled their wishes, you will have to talk about fears with another Sim. If you manage to do that successfully, your Sim won’t suffer from the Fear of Unfulfilled Dreams in Sims 4.

Although the Fear-be-gone potion is an easy way to deal with the Fear of Unfulfilled Dreams in Sims 4, it’s slightly expensive. You can buy this potion from the Aspirations Store for 300 points.

This potion will help you deal with one Fear only, so if you have to use it for multiple Fears, then you will have to stock up on multiple potions.

Turn off Fears and Wants

In case you don’t want to continuously deal with the Wishes and Fears of your Sims, you can turn them off in the gameplay settings. To do this:

  1. From the main menu of the game, head into the Game Options.
  2. Select Gameplay, and scroll down till you come to the Fears and Wishes option.
  3. You can either turn off or turn on the feature by selecting the Fears and Wishes option.

That sums up everything that you need to know about the Fear of Unfulfilled Dreams in Sims 4. However it’s worth noting that if you stop catering to their wishes, then there’s always a chance that your Sim will develop this fear once again.
