    1. #1

      Default am i the only one who wants to die in battle?

      I Used to be a good person before some things happned ( personal stuf) but since i made 15 i dont feel empahty anymore ( i feel it rarly almost to 0) the only thing i ever liked was playing videogames and training now training is the only thing i enjoy ( if i dont train till i m exhausted i get really depressed) . I know that war isnt like an action movie , war is strangers doing horific things to each other its horribile i know thats why i want to go, i saw "saving privater ryan " and i wish i was in the captain place. I watched videos of real people being killed and it didnt bother me . I dont want to kill inocent people ,i want to kill the bad guys . I just want to die like a hero ( prone in a greanede saving my unit for example) and kill the max number of people possibile . Dodging bullets in the midle of nowere is not nice i know but its the only thing that could make feel alive and maybe even happy . Civil life is just depresing , boring , whit noting that sufering for no reason so sorry but its not for me . I dont want to survive i want to live . I will join the French Foreign Legion . I think about this since i was 15, i will make 18 next week ( i m not a kid that wants to get action because is " cool" this is serios and i m gonna do it) i just want to know if there are people like me out there because i think i am the only guy feeling this way , Is there a defenition for people like me? like for depresed or narcisist people? I am a foreign sry for gramar errors

      its common, I had a boyfriend who felt exactly the same.

      I had another boyfriend ironically who actually DID join the French Foreign Legion and dropped out within a week alongside the other 90%.

      it was during the Bosnia/Herzegovina wars and all those dead bodies littering the fields, puffing up and bloating, turned out to be no where near as glamorous as he'd imagined.

      I can understand your feelings. We want peace but find war fascinating. Men in this country have been emasculated and no longer have a sense of what it is to be a man. With all the health and safety rules I don't even see kids climbing trees anymore. When all the basics have been met what is there to fight for or get out of bed for. Have spoken to soldier and they all have problems adapting to civilian life when they leave. Pushing a trolley around Asda and not having to think about life and death leaves them empty and bored. I suppose you could always do the training and see if you're cut out for that life. Hope you never come face to face with ISIS (makes me s!!! my pants just thinking about it).

      Also further to this, to anyone interested: most of being in battle, is marching.

      You march here, you march there. The Actual Battle is only about 1% of it, most of the time you are marching. And doing drills and more drills. Then marching some more.

      That is so true. Plus the blisters, tiredness and maybe PTSD. Most jobs that sound exciting are in fact only 1% action.

      A quote from an American Civil War veteran:

      "Soldiering is 99% boredom and 1% sheer terror."
      “When people see their behavior as inconsistent with their self-image or goals, their motivation to change can increase.” ---- Carrie Wilkens, PhD
