on giving up old stories
Even if your mother or father didn't tell you that you were wonderful when you were a child, your divine Father/Mother tells you that now. Spiritual understanding is a corrective to any false programming you might have received as a child. Rather than endlessly analyzing a tape from childhood, you can erase it by recording a new one. Spiritual growth involves giving up the stories of your past so the universe can write a new one. You are not denying your childhood; you are simply transcending any of its negative aspects.
God is your real Mother and God is your real Father. You are loved and adored and cared for and blessed. Accept that if even for a moment, and the torments of moral childhood begin to pass away.
