Based on my experience, accepting uncertainty (and accepting our fear) is the only way to survive mentally and probably survive physiologically. Since our acceptance clears the room out of repetitive unresolvable questions and opens the door for the better questions and potential solutions.

And denial, locks down our mental power and abuses our energy without giving any possibility.

And the last, but not the least, exactly as you mentioned, uncertainty is based on context.

By introducing to a new context (New job / workplace, new country, society changes, a new environment,...), different set of issues would arise and uncertainty will knock the door in a new face!

I liked how you conceptualized and generalized uncertainty to reveal the big picture!
