Warning: Premorse Sometimes Precedes Remorse

Premorse Sometimes Precedes Remorse

Have you heard the newly-coined word premorse?

It’s pre-emptive remorse — when you realize you’re going to have remorse before you even commit an act, but you go through with it anyway.

Unfortunately, I have premorse more often that I’d like to admit…

But that doesn’t stop me from continuing to do things I later regret (eating that huge piece of cake, volunteering for a work project, spending too much money, etc.)

It’s like you have an angel on one shoulder and a devil on the other, and the devil triumphs.

You know you shouldn’t give in, and that you’ll be sorry…but you walk down the wrong path anyway.

What’re ya gonna do?

Does this happen to you, too?

    Lol love that word. Never heard of that one before. I always enjoy tracking new slag and love a good portmanteau!
