My family have been less than supportive about my decision to go into the army, not that they think its a bad move or anything. But they doubt me. They think i will fall at the first hurdle or give up when it gets tough. And with good reason. Ive been that bloke in the past. But if im honest, completley and truley... This is the first thing ive ever REALLY wanted in my entire life. Ive worked so hard already and im really looking forward to it. My family have been trying to put the mental strain on me to give up. But its not working, and it got me to thinking, "Whats with all the pressure?" So heres my question for you established military types Can anyone tell us n00bs what we can expect to be up against mentally if/when we get to basic?
