I'd Rather Be Miserable With You Than Without You

June 10, 2015 2 min read

Are all your past relationships totally messed up? Are your current ones not much better? Do you stay with someone even when you know you shouldn't? Why do we do this? We want true love, we want one that feels good and yet we do nothing to go find it. Maybe it is just that feeling like crap can feel good from time to time. What is familiar is safer than what is new or unknown. We put up with more than we should because we don't want to be alone. miserable2

Misery loves company.

Life is less frightening when you have someone there. It means no loneliness -- or at least that is what it is supposed to mean. When we feel dissatisfied, we want someone to share in our misery. We want someone to bitch to -- and about. We don't want to be alone or truly happy so we stay in a situation that feeds our self pity.

It is better to have fights than to have no one to talk to.

Arguing is exhausting and exciting. It is easier to focus your energy into arguing than it is to focus it into dating all over again. Fighting is better than the silence that comes with being alone.

We don't want to go through the pain of losing someone. Again.

Breaking up sucks. That's the truth. Staying in something unsatisfying is better than being heartbroken. Something broken is better than having nothing at all, right? miserable3

We hope the relationship will be what we want instead of what it is.

We trick ourselves. We trick ourselves into thinking we have something better. We can't see, acknowledge or accept what is right in front of us. We ignore red flags and keep going like nothing is wrong. We hope. We hope the s/he will change and become the person we so desperately want them to be. We are lost in our fantasy partner.

We don't know how to communicate.

We are afraid to ask for what we want from a relationship because we are afraid doing so will scare off our SO. We worry that speaking up for ourselves will make us more trouble than we are worth and we will end up alone. So, we power through, all the while growing more and more unhappy. The more unhappy we become, the more silent we become. We shut right down. We settle for being treated poorly because don't know how to ask for what we deserve. We tell ourselves it will get better and if it doesn't, it is better than being alone. But maybe we need to change our view. It won't just get better on its own. It will get better if we make it better. It will be better if we ask for better. Maybe it will mean being alone. And really, maybe that isn't such a bad thing. h/t: Elite Daily

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
