I need help
I want to repent for my sins yet there's so many things that I lust over that I can't help but give in to them, I can't get rid of my selfishness towards secular tv and music, I have so many questions for god, I really want to change but I always lose commitment
Can anyone help

Psalms 55:22

Also, change your habits. Get rid of TV. Delete those songs and fill up your playlist with other music. Take up another hobby during the times you usually indulge in the things you'd rather not.

Who says that it is?

I might be able to serve you if the answer can be found in the bible, but if this is comes from some other authority, my assistance will be less effective.

I watched a video of a Korean girl who visited hell and she tells the story of how our souls are being taken as we watch tv

If she is the authority on all matters relating to God and sin, then I can do little to challenge her authority, except to say that I follow the bible as the authority that God has given to men. If what she says contradicts with the bible, I will consider her incorrect and the bible correct.

I can't help too much in the religious sense however, I can give a bit of advice for helping to curb temptations that you deem more damaging.

First set some bounderies and guidelines.

For example, with watching too much T.V. try limiting the amount of time you watch first by setting a boundary. I can watch 30 minutes of T.V. if I spend an hour working in the yard.

Now you get a slightly better yard and you limit what and how much T.V. you are watching. The trick is to take your time with changing your habits. Do not expect them to change instantly and only change them if you truly want to or the habit is detrimental to your well-being or those around you.

Also I find it helpful to change one aspect at a time first. Trying to change too many things at once could cause you to lose focus. Also, setbacks or relapses are typically inevitable just acknowledge them and try again knowing more than you did before hand.
Congratulation. This story is happy end. Thank you.

Why can't you be a good Christian while enjoying secular music and tv?
Sucking at something is the first step to becoming sort of good at something.

I hope he didn't grow up in an environment like mine. I was never allowed to have fun, because it was always deemed taboo. It's unhealthy.

I dislike both side of extreme. Completely cutting yourself of pleasure is just as bad as indulging pleasure non-stop, for me.
Watch porn! Gamble! Eat luxurious food! Go on a holiday! Date an escort! Play poker!
If you don't break any law nor violate other people's right while doing it, where's the harm?

As long as you can control yourself, it's fine to indulge every once in a while.
Everything is best in moderation.
