About with what happened with me in my past. Maybe others don't go through a similar inner conflict. I know I was young. But, I'm curious with your beliefs how would you have dealt with the issue.  If you feel strongly that I did something wrong, I kindly ask that you refrain from scolding me. I'm looking to move forward and grow.
As a Rede-follower myself, I see nothing to scold you about.  Now, if one of those folks who claim the Rede "states" that even defense of self/others constitutes doing harm happened to come along, they'd get an earful (and not just from me, either).

I can't tell from what you've said whether you're questioning whether a Wiccish path will suit you because of that pernicious and irresponsible interpretation of the Rede, or if there are other reasons.  If the latter, my best suggestion is, keep reading - you won't necessarily find what suits you this week, or even this year; the journey of discovery itself is part of your personal path.  But don't dismiss the Wiccish merely because some people are intent on interpreting the Rede so that they never have to feel guilty about their own cowardice; it's not an authorative interpretation by any means, nor even the most common.
