That all depends on who YOU are. I think it's easier if you know who you are and you won't feel pressured by outside influences to be something you're not. It also depends on what you're priorities are - you or your child? If you are your first priority, it's harder because your child is demanding and will need you, and I've seen a lot of single moms resent this because they're so into themselves. However, if your first priority is your child, it's a lot easier to put their needs first and anticipate their needs and make sacrifices in your own life to support your child. This is just my opinion, but I am a single mom and while I love it, I know that my son will have disadvantages growing up by not having a strong attachment to his father - although, considering his father's level of dysfunction, this I consider not so bad. Ultimately, though, I think it depends on who you are and what type of person you are.
