Take My Heart
Liam Neeson's character Brian Mills from the movie Taken once said, ~...I do have a very particular set of skills. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you...I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.~ In some aspect, being able to be given back one's smile after it's taken from you due to suffering an utterly painful heartbreak can most definitely seem like a daunting task to undertake, especially if it's an individual who is potentially worthwhile. In other words, showing how far you'll go for that someone special putting yourself on the line mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. Although Brian Mills spanned the globe in order to get back his daughter, a certain guy/girl will metaphorically span the globe of the victim's heart to bring back what was snatched by any means necessary utilizing their own special set of skills. If you think about it, Liam's character faced a number of obstacles hindering him from locating the exact whereabouts of where his daughter is. In a sense, a potential suitor has the daunting task indeed to face a considerable amount of obstacles that are totally out of their control regarding a certain someone's thoughts, feelings, and emotions. It's those 3 previously mentioned that can in some ways be considered a dangerous threat in which it keeps him/her/you from retrieving the smile that hasn't been able to express ever since enduring the painful heartbreak. Thinking about it further, the attempts to personally investigate may seem considerably easy, but if at any point the personal investigation gets too close an immediate wall is put up whereby keeping him/her/you from moving forward. Without a doubt, it can certainly be a battle of sorts in fighting your way through the aforementioned obstacles in which they're considered to be a gauntlet. A gauntlet where each particular emotion, thought, and/or feeling is tremendously tough to get past than the last. Anger, hatred, bitterness, confusion, doubt, fear, sadness, worry, etc. are a representation of the henchmen that the main villain known as heartbreak employs, in a manner of speaking, to stop at all costs the mission at hand to achieve. True, the odds may very well be overwhelmingly against him/her/you to not succeed; but when the risk being taken is for the possibility of true happiness you would literally die trying because quite frankly he/she is absolutely special to not ever give up for, which is what love/true love is all about. Let me ask this question to those who have suffered heartbreak and were able to be given their smile back after it was taken from you, what special skills did that certain special someone utilize? I think it's safe to say that for any woman to have a guy use his arsenal of weapons such as laughter, patience, understanding, a listening ear, a shoulder to cry on, just being merely there without saying a word, etc. makes it an absolute nightmare for the lingering pain that heartbreak leaves behind. However, it's a dream come true for her when that lingering pain gradually subsides to the point where the memory of past heartbreak is killed off never to be thought of/felt again. What it primarily comes down to is starting off the relationship with a comfortable friendship at pace where both individuals take time to know each other instead of making costly mistakes bringing even more distance between the two of you. In retrospect, there is so much more that can be taken from matters of the heart without any remorse whatsoever like trust, faith, honesty, respect, joy, communication, contentment, and commitment. Granted, it can leave men and women so jaded to where there is the unfortunate belief the idea of falling in love is not worth saving. Sadly, potentially worthwhile relationships end up disappearing completely never coming to fruition because of that mindset. Of course, frustration can set in knowing even though you want to in all intense and purposes bust into his/her heart and be the quintessential hero to have their smile be returned you can't. Ultimately, leaving a metaphorical path of destruction is not necessary in this case to return what was taken. In the end, by utilizing one's special skills in a positive way all-the-while silently eliminating each obstacle one by one without even realizing it on their part gives him/her a much deeper appreciation so much so you'll quite possibly hear the words take my heart because he/she knows it will always be forever protected.
