In my vocabulary department, I still get confused by the definition of the word and its application in real life. Being native (South) Korean, who studied English in ESL (English as a Second Language) environment, I have endless stories to tell how I ended up speaking and writing in English eventually.
For a while I was afraid of using the word 'redeem' and 'redemption', partially because I didn't know their exact meaning. So I finally look them up in the dictionary.
Redeem : [VERB] If you redeem yourself or your reputation, you do something that makes people have a good opinion of you again after you have behaved or performed badly.
Redemption : [NOUN] Redemption is the act of redeeming something or of being redeemed by something.

I had to laugh, but shortly after I fixed my facial expression to a serious mode. That girl was meant to be her, and she was describing an incident at her school few weeks back. For many days of reinforcement of her self-reflection, she finally examined her behavior by herself. I couldn't be happier! I cried within, Hurrah!!!!
