I'm falling into temptation a lot lately and really need to be stronger in my walk, like that whole armor of God thing. I'm feeling kind of pathetic and want to give up trying to change my life in other ways or not be a pathetic loser who knows it.

may God guide you.
remember the armor of God (ephesians 6) is about putting on (having in your character) truth, righteousness, salvation (through Jesus Christ), faith, readiness to share the gospel and responding with the words of God (from the Bible and Holy Tradition).
all the rest of the book of ephesians has good advice for life too.

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

I've been feeling the same way as you do, my friend.

Kyrie eleison on us both.
