i went through some trouble a few years ago and i kind of internalized some sort of resentment towards my parents. it was father's day yesterday and i didn't even call home and i feel awful about it.

i think a lot of people have some trouble with their parents at some point in their life and its no shame yours lasted longer than most. i would recommend the simple action of reaching out. i know its hard, but these little efforts are what truly build the foundation on which you can get better

if you're still reading this, i went through a lot of trouble with one of my parents and to this day i refuse to even talk to them. the key thing here is to understand why you resent them - what happened to make you think like that. once you've done that see if you can justify it, if you can then no need to feel awful, if you can't then say hi and see where it ends up.

it's a make believe holiday. don't let it bother you. besides his father's day is technically your birthday and he got his present long ago.
