As human beings, we do tend to worship people and things like work (or even emotional rewards) that are not God.
I don’t know where you are on your spiritual journey, just beginning or practicing a while, but at any rate, this seems to me to be God nudging you away from your dependence upon these things and towards dependence upon Him alone.
I don’t know what you’re prayer life is like, but if you are serious about overcoming this or anything in life, you’ve gotta pray. It’s just that simple. The grace of God is powerful, but the first thing we need to do is ask for it, every day, often throughout the day.
Personally, when I went from praying mechanically to praying as if Jesus were sitting right next to me, in my own words, just telling him exactly what was bothering me or frustrating me, that’s when it seemed like the grace just started flowing. Then, I was able to make many strides in detaching myself from negative things.
Sometimes we have to simply downright refuse to do that thing that we know is wrong. It takes a lot discipline to exercise the will. But when we refuse to do it and pray for the Lord’s help, then the grace comes and He changes our desires.
Of course, there is nothing wrong with admiring a woman’s beauty. That is not a sin. The sin, of course, comes when we begin to imagine ourselves with her sexually. But even now, it’s still my natural response to want to worship a beautiful woman. But because of the Lord’s grace after many years of disciplining my will and praying, I’m now able to bring her into the spiritual realm, praying for her, saying a few Hail Mary’s for her conversion and salvation, instead of leaving it at the natural level of mere attraction.
I also cannot recommend Eucharistic Adoration enough. There is something mysterious about going there. I think it has to do with the fact that it just runs so counter to our natural understanding of things. You think–“Ok, I’m sitting here staring at the Host. How is this going to help me?” We are so used to having to do something or learn a new technique or whatever, that we can’t believe that it can help. But it does.
I think a general rule of the spiritual life is that whenever we do anything for God that goes against our nature, whether it’s going to Mass or Adoration, or even just praying when we don’t feel like it, that’s when grace can come to us, helping us to detach a little more from created things and from those things on the internet that can damage us.
God Bless, I will pray for you!
