Is the Love Between Romeo and Juliet Eternal?
Romeo and Juliet are considered to be an example of perfect blind love – love that does not obey orders and listens only to the heart. Moreover, it was a tragic love, which did not last for long. Of course, one should not forget that they both are in heaven now and can enjoy one another for eternity. But would you like to experience such destiny yourself?
Due to books and films of such kind, many of us initially suppose that we really love a person only if we are ready to die when their lives come to an end. Of course, ideas of such kind gradually vanish in our heads, though Juliet and Romeo are still believed to be the perfect lovers. Bearing in mind Shakespeare’s contribution to the world literature, let me state that he gave a bad example to the sensitive youth. Even now young people commit suicides without taking into account feelings of their parents and friends, when their beloved ones pass on to the Great Beyond. Though they should not forget that the death of one person is already a tragedy and it is very selfish to make people mourn on two occasions at a time.
For this reason it would be much more sensible for writers to make people understand that difficulties and grieves must not destroy us. No one is saying that one must shake all the memories off his head and behave as if nothing has happened, but one can cultivate kindness in the name of their beloved ones so that they could watch from heaven and feel your eternal love.
