Lady Macbeth is talking in her sleep, aimlessly wandering, and overall just generally acting very strange, this alone is a sign of her extreme guilt. It becomes crystal clear that she regrets what she has done when she later ends her own life, as she is unable to live with what her and her husband had done in order to get where they are. What they had done together had very clearly ruined their lives, and Lady Macbeth realized and regretted it all towards the end. She showed true remorse for killing the guards, making it clear that at the very least she knew what she did was wrong. When someone does something this wrong, one of the only ways you can truly determine whether they are “evil” or not is if they feel guilt or show remorse for their actions, both of which Lady Macbeth did in excess since she loses her mind and goes on a rant saying: Out, damn'd spot!

Achilles’ anger was triggered by Agamemnon’s arrogance
“Do what you feel in your heart to be right, or you’ll be criticized anyway.” - Eleanor Roosevelt.
