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...

No, I'm not dismissing Wicca. The point about me sharing my past is really sharing my ignorance. The reason why I wanted feedback on my past and what others would have done is to learn a little bit more about my misunderstandings. Maybe that was a wrong way to state it. I don't know. I figured to start moving forward in my studies I needed to have better understanding of somethings that confused me and just be honest with what had occured.

...- 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.

I guess I feel as though I'm starting over and a bit lost. And maybe a step in the right direction can help. You're right and I know I'm not going to find it this next week or even in a year. That's why I want to learn about other paths, mainly those focused on my interests, to help me in my journey. It may lead me back to Wicca. I may find after all this, Wicca is truely my path and my belief stronger. I just think here, I'd get more help and assistance than I have before. I like the point of discussion and people asking questions and making good points. It helps. Your post helps.
