Here's a poem I've seen quoted in a few places from a British poet named Philip Larkin, I belive:

"Your parents fuck you up,
They don't mean to but they do,
They give you all their faults,
And throw in some just for you."

Though J. may not have been on the mark about your current sources of unhappiness, there's a good chance it traces back to and echoes of your childhood roots and relationships (and your perceptions of them) with your parents. Generally seems to be the case from what I've read, heard, seen and experienced and certainly was for me.

I believe there was mention of forgiveness for whoever, above... A lot of it comes down to realizing that people are acting out whatever their interpretation of their script and relationships are/were and that often they are doing the best they can/could have under those circumstances. It's all about perspective.
