When Longterm Relationships End, How Do We Cope?

May 27, 2015 2 min read

When we're with them, we feel as if they're our one and only. And when we find ourselves without them, we wonder where our lives are supposed to go from here.

A number of years ago, a close and longterm relationship ended for me that left me completely gutted. I thought this person was my everything, and when I lost them, I also lost a part of myself. There goes the future I built up in my mind. But as I analyze the relationship as a whole, I recognize the red flags.

It can be difficult to trust new ventures with people after putting so much time and effort into something that simply fell apart. We fall into traps of creeping our ex's on Facebook, comparing ourselves to the new girl he's wrapping his arm around in his profile picture. We can still smell that person, hear their voice telling us sweet things. We ponder, "If I hadn't gotten angry that one time...or if I had lent him money for that car...maybe we could still be together today."

We may even convince ourselves that the break up is only temporary, and he will grow bored of that new girl and realize his love for you is undying. And when our brains finally except that it's really the end, the pain comes. The pain we've been avoiding.

But the pain is fleeting. Soon we learn ways to cope. It may be that we reach out to friends, or journal our anger and fears. We may find meditation, exercise, a yoga class, something we can lose ourselves in. We start to find who we are again.

Nights become filled with "ifs" and "whys". We see the future is at our feet and embrace it. We begin to like ourselves and we channel out the hate, the hurt and the blame. Slowly and carefully we rebuild.

People come in and out of our lives. It is a reality that is sometimes harsh, but often times positive. Those who leave, leave for a reason. You ultimately become happier and ready to accept true, honest, willing, solid love. It may seem like the world is ending now, but trust me, it's only just beginning.

What are some great coping methods you have used during a break up? Share your stories with us!

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 (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 4-6 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
Returns & Exchanges

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.
