Afraid of Boot Camp, I think I'm going to break down and cry from the stress and yelling?! How do train myself to be mentally strong?

    The purpose of Boot Camp/Basic is to subject you to gradually increasing levels of stress...to teach you to better deal with stress.  They also strive to teach you to be a member of a team and support each other.

    Of course, if you’re talking about the Air Force it’s to teach you how to cry silently and stop sucking your thumb.

    What branch is this? I did Army BCT and while it was hard it wasn’t bad everyday.

    You’re not inventing the wheel. If it’s Marines they have one of the lowest attrition rates for basic training.

    If you give them your all they will meet you somewhere in the middle

    If you feel that way you are too immature to serve and shouldn't join.

    Boot camp is designed to break you down.

    Then they build you into the man they need.

    Break down and cry. Let it out. Then cowboy up. You will see you can tolerate it. You have to want to, and it's probably not going to be as hard as you think.
