The Vow

This guest post comes from Mr. T Brick…who’s birthday is today!! So I would like to thank my fellow Taurean for doing this, and wish him a Happy Birthday!!!

Life’s all about moments, of impact and how they change our lives forever. But what if one day you could no longer remember any of them?”

If you don’t know, this quote comes from the movie “The Vow”. The movie based off of true events about a newlywed couple involved in an auto accident where the wife suffered brain trauma and suffered loss of memory of everything having to do with everything involving her husband.

It’s not too often you come across a movie that can have an influence on the way you view things in life, and it’s also very rare when you watch a movie and think to yourself, what would I do, how would I react, how would I feel if I were in that situation?

What if that “impact moment” came, and your significant other no longer knew/ remembered who you were? Is that something you ever fathomed happening? How do you think you would feel/react? Would you continue to strive for better days? Would you continue to stand by their side? Would you continue to stand by your “Vow”? Although all of these questions may be hypothetical, a touch of reality could be added in an instant!

Growing up from adolescence, to teenage, to adulthood, facing rejection when it comes to the opposite sex is sort of a fear factor that no one is exempt from. BUT, imagine having to overcome rejection from not just someone that gained your love and trust over time, not just someone that you may have developed a friendship with that you may speak with on occasion, but someone that has grown with you enough that you are able to call them your life partner, someone you have made a vow to/ with to be there for better or worse, only to be cast off as a stranger with no recollection of past memories that made your bond unbreakable? Would you be able to stand the test of time and persevere through any and every obstacle you’re faced with? From the outside looking in the answer may be a soothing yes, but if put in the trenches in the thick of it all, could you deal with not being able to hug, kiss, caress, sweet talk, reminisce or reflect with the one person who knows you inside and out because they are incapable of rehashing any single moment you shared together? Could you deal with not being able to share the same space as you drift off to sleep, not because the temperament between the two of you reached a limit beyond what a thermostat could project, but because the person that at a time knew you, loved you, can no longer make out who you are. It no longer becomes rejection. It now flirts along the same line as humiliation and desperation rolled up into one. How much humiliation can one take before the desperation runs out? How much desperation must one have to be humiliated over and over, but continuously come back for more?

How deep does love go? How far can love take you? How much love can one person have for an individual?

    Love this question and this post…

    I don’t know what I would do, they say love conquers all. But to love someone and have them forget who you are and not remember you or your shared memories will be hard. It can take a toll on a person.

    But knowing me I would try my best to get them to remember me. With suttle things and make their heart remember mines, if that doesn’t work it could hurt my heart.
