Growing up with a single mom can be rough, but when you grow up you learn all the sacrifices that she made to make you happy. Whether you grew up without a father or with a father that didn't live with you, your mom was a single mom that raised you to be the person you are today. You watched your mom your whole life, and from that, you picked up on some traits that unfortunately not many people your age know about.
1. You are more independent.
After watching your mom do everything that she can to give you a happy life, you learned what an independent person she is, and you strive to be like her.
