Hi @skyburial .
I've had a partially similar experiance. When I was in therapy, my therapist tried to destroy things that made me me. IMHO, it was a fool's errand as you can't alter the attributes that define something - at least not without destroying it; but that's probably a whole new conversation.
The main thing with my situation was that these attempted "alterations" were completely non-consentual. I didn't want them; and I was very certain about that.
The impression I get from your post is that you are in two minds about removing this aspect of your personality? (for lack of a better way of putting it) I have no personal experiance of that because, as I've said, I was always very clear about what I wanted for myself.
Can I ask, why do you want this moral code of yours gone? I can understand the case you've made for hanging on to it, but I'm not so clear on your reasons for wanting to get rid of it.
