Why You Will Always Love The People You've Loved Before

June 30, 2015 3 min read

Our interactions with people shape us and we don't always know it. Was the course of my life altered by the sweet lady working the check out at the grocery store? No. But I did leave the building wearing a smile that I didn't have when I walked in. Think about it. People change and impact other people. When you love someone, that impact is magnified. love Loving requires a vulnerability. An openness. Being in a loving relationship plays to our most basic needs. They (should) provide safety and comfort. Your love should be your safe place to land in this world. But sometimes the worst thing happens. You are utterly betrayed and hurt by this person you loved. It has shaken your very foundation and set you off on a different path. It is impossible to tell if this new path is for better or worse. Maybe you've now closed yourself off to love or find you are less trusting. Maybe you've gone on a bitter, self destructive tear just so you don't have to feel. Would life have been better if you could skip this part and live happily in your relationship? Maybe. It surely would have been less painful. But the thing is, as humans, we are wired for survival. We pull ourselves up. We change, we adapt. We move forward. We might make lateral moves first, but we do move forward. We are constantly adding new experiences, knowledge and memories. When we come out the other side, we are so much stronger. And this why you will always love that person who hurt you. You may really dislike this person. I ran into an ex last week and the very sight of him made me feel sick to my stomach. Not because I'm hurt but because I realized that I really, really, really don't like him. I went through hell in that relationship but here I am, still standing. Because of him, I know what I won't stand for in relationships. I've grown and matured on my journey away from him. I am a better person than I was before. I am richer for the experience, painful though it was. And that is why I will always, no matter how deeply it is buried under more important things, love that man. I can't be certain, but it is likely that I would not be who I am today without having had that experience. If you have been hurt and betrayed, if you have been disappointed and let down, know that you will journey through. I know this wasn't the path you thought you'd take through life but sometimes it needs to go dark before the light reappears. You will heal. And you will heal to be even stronger than you were before. And when you come out that other side, say a little thank you to the universe. You may never want to see or hear from your ex again but they've made you better. I'm not saying everything happens for a reason, but you can choose to use your experience of pain in a positive way. Hate that person for what they did to you but love them for allowing you to see your true value. Love them, even in a small way, because you've become an even more incredible person for what they did. Embrace it and a rock on without them. h/t: Elite Daily Do you follow us on Instagram?

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

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.
