I'm getting ready to swear in but I'm getting these moments of questioning myself, whether or not I really want to do this. But it's hard to decide considering when I wasn't planning on joining, I fell into a dark place, I felt lost cause all I wanted to do was the military. Now though, I'm asking myself if I REALLY want to do it. Is this normal?

Fear of the unknown is natural. You are doing something completely outside of your experience and comfort zone. Just know that the pride and sense of accomplishment you will experience when you take that plunge will make everything worth it.

I’ve been doing this for 12 years and I still find myself second guessing some decisions.

This is a major step in your life, like moving out of your parents, getting married, deciding to have children, etc. it is normal to be nervous, unsure and the like. If this is what you wanted and it is coming close it is likely just nerves. But, only you can make that decision. I was pretty much scared when I went to boot. And then when I fell in with 40 of my closest friends it all went away.
