If you want to get rid of your Sim's fear of having unfulfilled dreams, you'll have to wait for an opportunity for them to vent their frustrations towards you. Look out for a spiky bubble symbol above your Sim's picture in the bottom corner of the UI (this is where the Sims portraits are). When this bubble comes with their fear displayed, they'll be given an opportunity to remedy this by hashing it out with other Sims. Click on any other Sim that is near and select Discuss Fears. This will give your Sim temporary but noticeable relief from their anxious feelings.

Is there a potion to cure fears in The Sims 4?

You may not want to make your Sim have conversations with others to relieve their anxiety, and instead you can take a look at the Aspiration Rewards Store. Once you go into the store, you can find the Fear-Be-Gone Potion for 300 points. Earn the necessary points by completing your Sim's desires, such as wanting to buy a new oven. Use the Fear-Be-Gone Potion to get rid of any singular fear. More potions are required to be purchased for curing multiple fears.
