RE: Reframing your mind to battle depression and CBT
How have you tried to forgive? One way I think might help for me at least is to emphasize or put myself in their shoes. My parents weren't too bad, but I was bullied quite a bit growing up by classmates and peers. I was quite different but did make friends. But bullying probably leaves lingering sores if you allow it.

I think I hold a negative view of my father because he is a way I could turn out, very beta and henpecked. We have a lot in common and he is a good man. In the past anytime I noticed a similar trait of mine in someone else it repulsed me. A sort of projected hate in a way. Hopefully introspection will lead me to the root of my sadness and find away of cognitively correcting it. You can't always control things, but you can let things not bother you.
