I recently decided to store all of my passwords in KeyPass Password Safe 2. I forgot my password to KeyPass.
Is there anyway to retrieve it? My assumption is no there is not for obvious reasons.

If you forget this master password, all your other passwords in the database are lost, too. There isn't any backdoor or a key which can open all databases. There is no way of recovering your passwords.
If you've forgotten it because you just changed the master password, you can do what I do in the future:
Hasn't steered me wrong yet.
If its correctly built (and by all accounts it is), your chances of recovering your password are very limited - luck, knowledge about yourself and your behaviour, you may be able to narrow down the key space and brute force it. There are tools to brute force Keepass files - see here. That said, its likely easier and faster to simply reset all your passwords.
