“Romeo is banned from Verona, which leads to him to seek out some pretty bad advice and guidance from Friar Laurence.” (Shmoop.com). The news Romeo receives is that Juliet is dead and in the Capulet's tomb Romeo does not know abou the fact he is supposed to be at Juliet's side when she wakes. Romeo is not aware of Juliet and Friar Lawrence's plan with the potion so in turn he takes his own life thinking Juliet is really dead. When Juliet wakes she finds Romeo dead next to her, she takes Romeo's dagger and stabbed it into her chest killing herself. She had taken to the potion to be reunited with Romeo and that hope is all ripped away the second she find Romeo dead next to her.
This decision is the result of Romeo’s difficulty in understanding and reacting to his emotions. At this point, Romeo feels a very large amount of grief. This grief causes him to feel very unsafe, which leads to him making an irrational and radical decision (killing himself).

During the famous play Romeo & Juliet Shakespeare uses emotions to establish Characters intentions, and more specifically he uses the expressions of grief and anger. Which he uses to demonstrate a higher emotional degree of impulsive decisions. By establishing decisions based on emotions such as grief and anger, can lead to unthoughtful and poor decisions; this is the case with Romeo’s fury and rage which leads to conflict with Tybalt. Along with his overwhelming grief of Juliet's death which conclusively leads him to kill himself by his own hands.

Romeo decided that he was in love with Juliet upon sight without knowing who she was (Shakespeare 924). This was a terrible choice Romeo had literally no idea who she was and this could have stopped the whole conflict of the play. Romeo then ignored his dreams which he believed told his destiny (Shakespeare 921-1009). While if Romeo listened to these dreams which he believed told the future he would have been much more cautious because he would know that he was going to die prematurely. Also, by him listening to his dreams he would have made either little or no poor choices later in the play which results in his death.
80-81). Romeo takes away Paris’s life because of the fact that they both think Juliet lies dead in the Capulet tomb when in reality Romeo has not received the letter from Friar Lawrence telling him Juliet is only sleeping which affects the play. To expand, Romeo still believes Juliet has met her death, so he drinks poison which generates his death. Friar Lawrence’s letter would have stopped Romeo from committing suicide because he would know of Friar Lawrence’s plan to stop Juliet from marrying Paris, but the letter never reaches him therefore greatly modifying the play’s outcome. Furthermore, Juliet wakes up in the tomb realizing the love of her life, Romeo, has passed away, so she decides she must not live without him and she stabs herself.
Not only does Romeo manage to kill Tybalt, but he also turns the law against himself, as the Prince declares Romeo’s banishment. This banishment is just the beginning of the dominoes laid on the board by Shakespeare; it becomes the physical barrier that separates Romeo and Juliet from each other. In the last act, this barrier then separates their minds as neither of them are on the same page, which is the cause of their

Consequences The parents and Friar Lawrence caused Romeo and Juliet’s tragic death. For example, both sets of parents continued the ongoing feud, knowing how negatively it affected the society and themselves. In fact, if the Capulets and Montagues did accept Romeo and Juliet’s love in the first place, then Romeo and Juliet wouldn’t have to commit suicide.
