I love the last bit about the "flavor of childhood" influencing the voice of the inner storyteller---this is something I have tried to become more aware of as I observe my reactions and the reactions of others---who might be their storyteller?
Understanding that other storytellers are coming from a different place can help us tame our own judgemental storyteller! I also appreciate the bit about embracing all sides of ourselves and that there is nothing inside us to be ashamed of. Hugs to all. :-)
