A definition of remorse is a deep regret or guilt for a wrong committed. In yesterday’s post, I talked about regrets that we all seem to find in the grieving process. Because we are imperfect, there will always be something to latch onto if we choose. These regrets come and go and eventually fade with time.
When this doesn’t happen and a regret takes hold, we have remorse. Even though the concept of remorse usually relates to a serious crime or action, remorse can and does affect many who allow their regrets to become dominant in their thoughts and daily life. Regret turned remorse causes unnecessary anguish during a time of grief. Regret if you will, but keep remorse at bay.
