True repentance is a "turning to God from idols" (1 Thessalonians 1:9).
Idols are not just those made of wood and stone found in heathen temples. There are equally dangerous idols that people worship that don't look so ugly. These are the idols of pleasure, comfort, money, one's reputation, wanting one's own way etc.
All of us have worshipped these for many years. To repent means to stop worshipping these idols, and to turn away from them to God.
