There are big ways to self-sabotage, and a lot of subtle ways we do it every day: not making decisions because we feel like we have too many options, procrastinating, quitting goals when they get tough, are a few. We have tips to recognize when you're self-sabotaging so you have a better chance at stopping. Plus, the best peanut butter cup is the Reese's Easter version, duct tape fixes everything, and sinuses are scary.

We're sponsored by Friend End, the technology you can use every four years to automatically delete your old friends from high school with shitty political views from your NewsFeed. Friend-end keeps you from seeing their racist, xenophobic, sexist, fearfully uneducated and unprogressive posts, so you can preserve the sweet memories you had of your high school bestie, examining the calorie count of fat-free Yoplait in the cafeteria and developing bulimia during your sophomore year. With Friend-End, you never have to know your high school BFF posted an article from the reputable news source: called Hillary Clinton will maybe, quite likely, sorta, could possibly be indicted. Instead you can feel nostalgic about that time you went camping when you were 16 and drank a whole bottle of Hot Damn and then puked all over her shoes and stained them red. The cool thing about Friend-End is that it sends you a digest each week of the friends whose news feeds you aren’t seeing. So even though you won’t see what specific bullshit their posting, you can feel comfortable in ignoring their request to get together for a drink the next time you’re in town. Let’s face it. It’s been 20 years. You don’t have anything in common anyways and there’s only so many times you can rehash that memory of when you both took mushrooms to celebrate your birthday, and ended up sitting her neighbor’s garden for six hours covered in dirt and marigold blooms because she was too sick to move. Basically all of your best memories involve nausea. Friend End, preserve your memories, and get that fearful racist, sexist garbage out of your newsfeed.
