No negative view or weakness as we're all in the same boat, if anything it makes us all stronger as fellow oppos and instructors gel together to help eachother when theyre down, things that usually cause people to cry are; homesickness, 1st 4 weeks are the hardest, stress builds up, new environment and the militarisation etc, it gets to some people and eventually it just lets loose. One of our lads had his wife questioning their marriage as they had gone from seeing each other everyday to not seeing them for weeks! They're good now tho, instructors helped them out.In most of the documentaries I've seen about recruit training in all the services, recruits are sometimes crying. What is the view of this, is it seen as weakness or just an inevitable result when things are going badly? Accepted or disapproved of?
I want to know if it is seen as a normal response, or if you get marked down for it.
The concern here @24681012 is that you have only been a member since Monday and your question is being seen as dubious and interesting for a first post.The question is why do you want to know, what will you do with the opinions expressed on this thread.
Writing an article perchance?
Yes I understand your concerns. But no..... Nothing devious going on!The concern here @24681012 is that you have only been a member since Monday and your question is being seen as dubious and interesting for a first post.
An off the cuff remark by a RR member about recruit crying for whatever reason could be used as 'A senior Naval source said.....'
I use a pint pot with a no spill lid, can't take chances. The counselling went well after a few more pints all seemed to be a bit of a blurred, but always remember life's lesson, on a blank week, let some dim whit nock your nearly empty pint over, most can't stand to see grown men cry.OMG! did you seek counselling at the time? It's good to know you've finally dealt with it even if you've not forgotten the event.
