Hello everybody.
After a hard day's work, a man goes back home.
He has done what he had to do.

He goes back home, feeling exhausted but accomplished.

In this case, accomplished stands for satisfied?
Thanks in advance.

    "Feel accomplished" does not make sense in that sentence. One can feel as if one has accomplished something or feel as if one has accomplished a lot, but to just "feel accomplished" is confusing in this context.

    Thank you, Bibliolept.
    It sounds odd to my ears, too, but it's the only explication I can find: he feels exausted but satisfied with having accomplished his work.
    Do you think is it possible?
