Sometimes there’s a price to pay for being the best. As much as we love our home state, even we can admit the hardships that come along with living here. But hey, at least we’re not alone – every other Texan is in the same boat (or scorching hot piece of land) with us. And the best way to deal with unfortunate circumstances is humor, so let’s laugh together about these 16 struggles everyone from Texas can relate to.
I’ve learned to accept these struggles since they’re such a small price to pay for getting to live in such an amazing state. How many times have you experienced these hardships? What other struggles come with living in Texas?

She attended college in the Houston area and changed her major twice (psychology, computer science, and finally criminal justice) before taking a leap of faith and dropping out to pursue a career in freelance writing.
