Islam/Dua to overcome fear


Assalamualaikum. I have noticed that these days I become very scared and frightful after I have seen any horror picture or listen to any horror/supernatural stories. Not immediately but later during hours when I'm alone. This never used to happen before. Please suggest a strong Dua or Surah I can continuously recite to become a brave man. Thanks a lot.

dua from Quran

[Quran 7:23] Rabbana zalamna anfusina wa illam taghfir lana wa tarhamna lana kunan minal-khasireen. (Our Lord! We have wronged our own souls: If thou forgive us not and bestow not upon us Thy Mercy, we shall certainly be lost.)

[Quran 3:8] Rabbana la tuzigh quloobana ba'da idh hadaytana wa hab lana milladunka rahmah innaka antal Wahhab (Our Lord! (they say), Let not our hearts deviate now after Thou hast guided us, but grant us mercy from Thine own Presence; for Thou art the Grantor of bounties without measure)
