How can I practice gratitude while recognizing and fighting injustice?

I'm trying to practice gratitude, release old grudges and generally be a happier person.

How can I be content with what I have while still working for a better world? [more inside]

Not enough to go around

Are there any good books about unhealthy competition between sisters? I want further insight into my older sister's negative impact on me and our other younger sister. I have not been able to find anything on the subject. Books about competition in families where scarcity was an issue during childhood would also be welcome. Thank you.
