I can't stress this enough. Anakin Skywalker is one of the weakest willed Jedi of all time. That's why he could never truly defeat Kenobi. Kenobi was much stronger despite being weaker in the Force. The prequels should have been about Kenobi IMO
Weak willed is a bit much. Anakin was the most human of all Jedi.
His issue was that unlike most Jedi he was not exposed to the potential Jedi life early on.
He grew up as a slave and was greatly emotionally attached to his mother.
He was emotionally driven instead of purging them and detaching himself from them.

His turn to the dark side could have been avoided if the order had been more trusting of him and willing to see past his flaws.
Instead they remained rigid and allowed their enemies to expose their flaws and to exploit his mistrust of them.
