Childhood to adulthood is a big change -- I was no longer the person who started that story. I'd grown out of it.

I think you've hit the problem here. But it's somewhat the same with other stages in life. If you've been slugging away for several years on the same novel, it's probably grown stale and you need a new project. Don't throw the old stuff out, though. It could have pieces that can be salvaged in the future.
