In William Faulkner’s “A Rose for Emily,” the protagonist, Miss Emily Grierson, is faced with challenges that leave her no choice but to find a way to escape the internal struggle of loneliness created by her own actions, leading to self-inflicted destruction. Looking in on the surface, the female character is imprisoned by the repressiveness of her father. While he played a huge role in causing Emily’s mental state to deteriorate, it was ultimately the consequences of her own self-control that confined her mind. Because of her poor choices, Emily lives in misery instead of rescuing herself from such damaging chains of sorrow.

Regret is a feeling that one gets after doing something wrong or failing to do something. This feeling makes a person reflect on their actions in order to learn, grow and develop into a better, stable person. In Louisa May Alcott 's novel "Little Women”, regret is always followed by anger towards the end of a situation.

Theodore Laurence also acted impulsively when he embarrassed Margaret March because he got irritated from Josephine for not telling him a secret.
