Why do I dislike my addictions?

Because I wanna feel good about myself.  My idols/addictions expose to me, and others, how dysfunctional I am, and that makes me feel like a loser/failure/nobody.  Sure, Jesus loves me just as I am, but do I love me just as I am?  No, my love for me is conditional.  Pride.  When I perform up to expectations, so I feel good about myself, only then do I love me.  But conditional love is no love at all.  Cruel.  Even in success, I feel pressure for the NEXT challenge/opportunity.  Because I’m unsatisfied with Jesus and His imputed worthiness.  I want some of my own.  Worldliness.
