Act 4 Scene 1

Juliet is telling Friar Laurence that she wants to commit suicide by telling him example and ways how she would do it."O, bid me leap, rather than to marry Paris, from off the battlements of yonder tower, or walk in thievish ways, or bid me lurk where serpents are; chain me with roaring bears;..." Juliet shows that a person should except themselves because when Juliet didn't get her way by being forced to marry Paris, she wanted to commit suicide, thus she needs to except the way that life is treating her.

Act 3 Scene 2

Juliet wants some one to harm her feelings so she says,"O, break my heart!" Juliet feels bad that Romeo killed her cousin Tybalt. Juliet shows a need for acceptance of herself because she is feeling sorry for herself and for Romeo so she feels the need to not live anymore. Juliet would need to accept herself and move on with life if she really loves Romeo.

Act 3 Scene 5

Juliet yells at her mother, Lady Capulet that she needs to feel sorry for herself. She says,"Yet let me weep for such a feeling loss." Juliet says that she is depressed that Tybalt has died from Romeo killing him. She commands her mother to let her weep.
