Self Reflection - I survived being an orphan

I lost my Mother at the age of seven. I was raised by the family members.
My Mother was never married. As an orphan, you are perceived to be disobedient.
Orphans are known for self-pity for an example if they are being disciplined they like to say it's done because they are orphans if their parents were still alive they would have been treated differently.
An orphan at the same time is expected for disobedience like abandoning home and live in the streets, not getting along with the family members, teenage /unplanned pregnancy, poverty, uneducated, lack of motivation, bitterness or anger, alcohol and drug abuse, being losers etc.
I chose to be different
I chose to change the perception.
