Topic: Nervous about joining the military


Iím sure youíve all heard this over and over and over, I honestly have been debating if it would be beneficial or not. Iím 20 yrs old and I havenít had the easiest childhood, but all throughout my life Iíve had members of my family in the military and itís always sorta been pushed on me and Iíve always fought it strongly. Iím at the point in my life where Iím tired of not knowing what Iím gonna do with my life. The thing that scares me the most about joining is going to basic I feel like if I go Iím gonna end up failingand failing isnít something I enjoy at all, Iíve never really been through anything like that I played soccer all through highschool but thatís nothing compared to what they do in basic, another thing is being yelled at, itís absolutely something I hate and when it happens I tend to block it out. Working out doesnít bother me but I donít want to be that person that Isnít able to do something correct and everyone else suffers Iím not doing this just because Iím at a low point in my life. I feel like the structure the military has to offer would be a great thing for me I just am having doubts on if Iím military material or not.

If you are thinking you will fail but if you change your mind frame into "I'm gonna do this and I will do everything I can to succeed" you will be successful in what you are doing. You said you have been playing soccer, so you know a bit about being functional in a team. I have a question about that. When you and your team entered the grass field for playing a game. Did you enter with the intention to win the game or did you enter the field with the intention to loose the game? The military might be something for you. It can also be the opposite, but you will never know until you give it a try.

I didnt have a very happy home life, I wanted to join the RAF straight out of school at 15 years of age as a boy entrant, my parents blocked my joining, so I waited until I didn't need their permission and joined. It was the best decision I ever made. My only regret was leaving the RAF, I wish I had stayed on for longer.

It is one of the greatest things I ever did. Joining the US Army helped me.

If you are nervous about basic maybe the military is not for you.
Basic training is just that, basic.
If you make it through you will have to do the job. You know the part that should make you nervous...
