    Diana was ashamed of herself

    I am not sure if my sentence sounds natural. Would you please correct my mistakes?

    Diana was ashamed of herself when she understood that greed had overcome her feelings.

    Re: Diana was ashamed of herself

    I suspect that "realized" may work better than "understood" in that sentence, and I'm not sure what you mean by "overcame her feelings."

    Re: Diana was ashamed of herself

    I wanted to say that she realized that her greed had became stronger than any other feelings. But I am not sure how to express that meaning correctly in English.
