We all know the basic stereotype of teenagers. They are moody, emotional, dramatic, impulsive, reckless, and irresponsible. They are defiant, rebellious, and are often in trouble. They are often prone to breaking expensive things. Countless teenagers either currently have a cracked screen on their phone or they have broken one in the past. An excellent portrayal of this recklessness is in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. In this book we see how the ability to control emotions is impaired as a result of teenage brain development and hormones.
“The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves”, is a quote by the man himself, William Shakespeare, concerning human responsibility, otherwise known as the capability of completing an obligation, or duty sufficiently. These commitments or duties play a role in how a situation will play out, and dictate the consequences that follow. The choices made from the beginning to the end in William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet are all examples of how people’s decisions, primarily those of Tybalt, Mercutio and Friar Lawrence, lead to a heartbreaking fallout. The pressure and burden weighing down the young lovers ultimately overwhelms them, causing an expeditious chain reaction. The influences behind each character’s ill-considered judgments,

This is just one example of teens acting on their impulses without thinking about all the possible outcomes. The situation that teens get themselves into due to their impulsivity continues to baffle scientists and authors. According to the article, “Teenage Brains Are Malleable And Vulnerable, Researchers Say”, written by Jon Hamilton states, “...because the so called reward system in their brains are very sensitive while circuits involved in self control are still not fully developed.” This quote proves that Romeo and Juliet were not just acting because they loved each other deeply; they were acting on their impulses because part of their brain that dealt with self control was not developed yet. After reading Shakespeare’s tragedy some people are surprised by Romeo and Juliets lack of thought process, but now it is being discovered that it’s not all their fault.
“Happiness is good, sadness is bad but together, they create a good story” These words from Luna Adriana Ardiansyah fit excellent for describing the erratic story of Romeo and Juliet. This story goes up and down with deaths, bad situations and plot twists. All these events led to different tragic events and Tybalt's death was one of them. In the tragic love story of Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare, Tybalt is liable for his own death because he makes irrational decisions, he has anger issues, and he always has held a grudge against the Montagues.
Romeo, an overly dramatic character, is one who does not think things through. Romeo’s death was caused due to Friar Laurence, who failed to send a letter informing Romeo that Juliet was simply in a death like sleep. Romeo, being one to jump to solutions stated, ‘Noting this penury, to myself I said, “ An if a man did need a poison now”… (Shakespeare 5:1 Lines 51-52)’.

It opened the eyes of those who had been blinded by hatred, changing the way they viewed the delicate concept of life and death. The power of their emotions was so strong, that there was no escaping them.
