I've heard many people say the opposite of fear is love, but that never connected for me. I could never connect how love would quell fear of things like heights, illness, money, or others' safety. I finally changed the thought for myself to say that faith is the opposite/antidote for fear. Faith that everything is always spiritually intact. Faith that I didn't have to control situations or outcomes. Faith that the the universe is a friendly universe. Faith that even if something scary happens, I'll always be okay.
