Everyone thinks that Romeo and Juliet is an over dramatic, but still beautiful love story. Admittedly Juliet is young and child-like. Romeo is foolish like every teenage boy. But when they come together they become one of the most well known – in the english speaking world at least – symbols of love.
People say that you can’t understand love as a teenager, but I think in a way you understand it the best when you are in your teens and 20’s. Because at that age you trust more, you love harder, you don’t see the cracks. Because when you are young you live for today, tomorrow, next week and for the next few months. You don’t want to get your heart broken, but you put it on the line more often.
I feel like the potential for true love is somewhere inside all of us. It is in a specific shape to you. And at some point we are destined to come across someone who has a shape that locks in with yours. Because it isn’t about being the same person, it is about a shared love not a shared life.
Maybe I am destined to live without my Romeo and he is destined to live without me; his Juliet. But I’m ok with that, because in away our potential for true love is enough. Just knowing he is out there makes it ok. Because when I hate myself I know that he has the potential to love me unconditionally.
Yes, they love foolishly, but shouldn’t we all. Because eventually our time comes and we should leave this world without regrets. At least they died loving. Because we all die. And I hope I die in love, just as they did.
