Is fear necessary or indulgent?


I have started my protocol yesterday and am very excited about this year.
I am also very afraid of this year. Yesterday I felt intensely the fear in my body, including tremors and cold sweat. I thought “Maybe this is abstinence already”.

Soon after this intense feeling, that’s what I thought:
Some very important changes are happening in my country and there’s real risk of violence. There are things that I can do regarding preparedness and prevention. So, this fear maybe a good thing if I take these prevention steps.

On the other hand, if fear is so intense that paralyses me, it isn’t helpful at all. I really don’t like feeling the way I felt yesterday.

My question is: is fear an indulgent or necessary feeling? I would love to hear from you.

Thank you for you help! I am loving to be part of SCS.
