Contrition

Contrition

<kon-trich-shun>

guilt; remorse; sorrow;

feeling shame and sadness about something bad you did.

The contrition of the boy made everyone want to forgive him.

Memory trick
contrition reminds of condition
we are in a sad contrition when we feel guilt

At work:
He never showed contrition about accidently deleting the file.
