In this example Romeo is taking responsibility for his past actions by defying fate and taking things into his own hands. Juliet is also a naïve and impulsive girl that
Juliet’s tragic downfall began when Romeo killed Tybalt, banishing himself to a lifetime of separation from her. Emotionally demolished by his sentence, Romeo says, “ Ha, banishment? Be merciful, say ‘death’”, indicating that Romeo would rather die than be banished from Verona. Romeo’s banishment by the Prince then causes Juliet and the Friar to come up with the idea to drink a potion that portrays Juliet to be as still as death. Once Romeo believes that Juliet is no longer alive, he makes another rash decision to bribe an apothecary for poison.
“A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life, Whose misadventured piteous overthrows. Doth with their death bury their parents ' strife. The fearful passage of their death-marked love” (Prologue).

Lastly, Tybalt is the most to blame for the events that occur in Romeo and Juliet because of the the first events he caused leading to the suicides of Romeo and Juliet. The confirmation that Tybalt is the cause of the terrible events in Romeo and Juliet is shown in the play “Romeo and Juliet” when Romeo says, “Is it even so? then I defy you, stars! Thou know ' st my lodging: get me ink and paper, and hire post-horses; I will hence tonight.”
At the scene of Romeo and Juliet’s death, Friar Lawrence confesses, “I am the greatest, able to do the least, yet most suspected, as the time and place doth make against me, of this direful murder. And here I stand, both to impeach and purge myself condemned and myself excused” (5.3.32-36).

Placing the Blame The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet truly becomes a tragedy once Mercutio, Romeo’s close friend, is killed by the hand of Tybalt. Multiple claims could be made regarding who is responsible for Mercutio’s death, but he himself is ultimately to blame. Once Tybalt approaches him, Mercutio begins to instigate.

The decisions we can make can cause impacts on others and our lives whether good or bad, it is your choice to make good
