The plight of Orphans

Hi As a child i grew up in dire poverty it used to be a real struggle..things got better later though but i just cant forget those days..although my parents were with me it was more or less like i was an orphan the reason being that i was not cared for i just grew up like any other you may call it the animal way .. well even animals too do take care of their offspring’ regrets…But what i experienced is like when u grow up as an orphan or uncared people exploit you in various ways… I don’t know how to say it in words but its like too vulnerable for young children to be brought up uncared for…
And children at the young and tender age do get really vulnerable just for survival that means just for a square meal! they can do any thing !! by the time they grow they have formed a character which is either timid or criminal .. can we blame them for what they are? what can we try and do to make things better for them ??????????

Everything that wounded you in your childhood becomes the special knowledge that is unique to you and that you can care for when deciding how to treat others, especially children. You understand that theft and similar behavior is not always clearly wrong… that people do things to meet their needs and sometimes have to compromise their dignity. You can see dignity in them anyway and that helps for them to see it in themselves and have more empowered behavior.

I get what you are saying, and where you are coming from..but it seems as if you are focusing on the negative things in your life instead of the positive. I mean, like you said yourself- you got an education. You know how many people in the world got denied that?

We all have different unique situations that we are thrown in to. We don’t choose these things, for the most part- but we have to live with them. At the end of the day, everyone is ultimately responsible for their actions- especially after an education.

Good and bad dichotomies are almost with us since birth. We naturally know right from wrong. Now, you may need to steal to eat dinner, but you still know in your head that killing a person is probably wrong. It’s just the simple observation that dichotomies are false, that’s confusing to people. Stealing is bad..Stealing to eat for the day? I dont call that bad, but some people eat themselves up over that moral dilemma.
