It would be more accurate to say that I had to utilize very specific therapies (rather than trying lots of different therapies) — there’s a pretty specific approach for my issue. It’s fairly outside-the-box and took an unusual approach.

This is one of those times where your limited knowledge of me leads you to some (understandable but ultimately) incorrect assumptions.

I have no problem blocking people from my life. Hell, I cut out my own grandmother because she was a horrible person. I have zero guilt about that. She’s dead. And I’m glad she can’t hurt all my family members any more.

I’ve cut others out, too.

Nah. Cutting people out of my life isn’t a problem for me.

I don’t wish ill on people in general, but I’m not a people-pleaser either.

I don’t attach to very many people. So the few people I actually do like, I tend to give the benefit of the doubt to. And I can be too generous in that.

Anyway, I’ll figure this all out. I think Greg’s nailed it here — some learning is happening for me from this and THAT feels good.
