 SAFETY IN LIFE
 
This is a large part of the "antidote" to fear, once you understand this more deeply.  Plus consider the formula for psychological safety:  Safety positives minus illusory threats = psychological safety - of which we need "enough" of it in order to operate well in life.  (See Sufficient Certainty also.)

Note in the fear box, there is a section that is highly related:  Seeing The Consequences In Perspective.
              

 Safe, I Am  

          I Am Safe, At The Core, Always 
          Why I Am Virtually Always OK 
          Affirmations And Declarations 
          What I Can Cause In My Life  
          I Am Invincible 
          Why And How I Can Handle Life  

"Sufficient" "Felt" Certainty - Despite the uncertainty of life and the weather, we can feel certain of a core that is invulnerable, though one can still feel "wet" or "cold" in the weather-life analogy and still be fine...

The Emotional Bank Account - This contributes to a sense of safety or sufficiency and offsets feelings of lack or missings that contribute to a sense of not being safe.
