The One Thing That Will Help You Get Over a Breakup

November 13, 2015 3 min read

No one ever called a breakup fun. And men and women alike can attest to the fact that being dumped is often times the equivalent of having a dagger slowly sliding its way into your insides. It just hurts, OK? But despite all the pain, some people keep coming back for more, even though they're well aware it will end again. Elite Daily's Alexia LaFata is one of those people. "In college, I dated the same guy on and off for three years, most (okay — all) of the 'offs' initiated by him. He’d dumped me so many times that I became a pro at sensing the onset of yet another a breakup," Alexia began. "Once, for example, I sensed that he was trying to dump me in the middle of a texting conversation, so I demanded that he not type another word until he meet me in person and say whatever he was about to say to my face. So he did, and I yelled at him for a good 10 minutes. And it was raining out, which really added to the theatrics of the whole thing." [bctt tweet="The One Thing That Will Help You Get Over a Breakup"] And on the fifth time she was dumped by the same dude, she finally felt embarrassed. "... he broke up with me on Valentine’s Day, after he’d taken me to a fancy dinner in the city to celebrate the holiday. When I questioned this downright sociopathic move of his, he said he’d wanted to take me on a 'nice night.' I’d trusted him to not mess up again, re-hyping him up to my skeptical girlfriends and insisting that he really was working harder this time to make things work. But then, as I lay next to him on his bed, the bed on which we were literally about to snuggle in for the night and watch a movie, he blindsided me with an 'I can’t do this.' Mortifying." INPOST-sleeping And just like all of the other breakups she experienced with him, Alexia found herself trying to pick up the pieces of her heart. She tried to let all her feelings out, distract herself when it became too much to handle, make herself playlists, and even remove her ex from all social media accounts. But no matter what she did, or how many drunken nights out with friends she had, it still hurt. If she saw him at the bar, or smelled his cologne passing by, or even found one of his T-shirts in her drawer, the pain would overcome her. "The only thing that really, really got me over my ex was time," Alexia said. "By my fifth breakup, I learned there’s nothing more healing than the passing of time, even during the days when the clock ticked gut-wrenchingly slow, and every minute that he wasn’t texting me felt like several thousand hours. What pulled me through the hardest of heartbroken nights were thoughts of the less heartbroken version of myself waiting for me in the future. I knew that in a week, I’d be slightly closer to her. In a month, I’d be even closer. In a few months, I may even be her." She suggests that, while it hurts to think that we'll go through all the pain, we have to confront it with the cliched response of, "Time heals all." INPOST-sleeping2 "Believe in the power of the Earth spinning and time passing. Believe in the power of placing yourself a few hours, a day, a week, even a month into the future and knowing that there’s a less-heartbroken version of yourself waiting on the horizon. Because if you envision yourself as the whole person that you will be again, it’ll be far easier to piece your broken self back together. I promise," Alexia concluded. Would you agree that time is the truest cure for getting over a breakup?

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.

Clothing

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.
