Khloé Kardashian is reportedly throwing in the towel on her strained relationship with Lamar Odom. Khloé initially filed for divorce from Odom in 2013 but called it off after he was hospitalized in Nevada so she could help him get better.
However, TMZ reports that the reality star realizes that she can’t help him and is “done” with the relationship. The report came hours after the 31-year-old posted a lengthy message on Instagram about “letting go” of people who didn’t want to be helped.
“Letting go doesn’t mean that you don’t care about someone anymore,” she wrote. “It’s just realizing that the only person you really have control over is yourself. Letting go with love takes great strength. We have to learn to stop taking on peoples problems as if they are our own. Loving people does not mean we have to carry their burdens and confusions on our back … You can’t want their life more than they do. This is in fact their life to figure out on their own and in their own time. I do believe in timing. I do believe timing is everything.”
Khloé went on to say that people can’t force their believes and hopes onto others, and sometimes you have to realize when something isn’t meant to be. “Don’t lose yourself by trying to fix what’s meant to stay broken,” she offered. “God always has a plan even if we can’t understand it (or don’t want to understand it). Even in the darkest of places… Our Lord sees His vision … Don’t put your happiness on hold for someone who isn’t holding on to you.” You can read her full message below.
"Letting go doesn't mean that you don't care about someone anymore. It's just realizing that the only person you really have control over is yourself." Letting go with love takes great strength. We have to learn to stop taking on peoples problems as if they are our own. Loving people does not mean we have to carry their burdens and confusions on our back. Sadly, You can only express your opinion on a situation. You can't want their life more than they do. This is in fact their life to figure out on their own and in their own time. I do believe in timing. I do believe timing is everything. You forcing your beliefs and dreams down ones throat is only going to cause resentment and possibly manifest deeper issues. Possibly to the point of no return. "People say time heals all wounds... I say time heals wounds but scars are left to remind you what you have been through and what you survived." Stop shattering your own heart by trying to make a relationship (friend, family, partner) work that clearly isn’t meant to work. We have to stop trying to repaint people's colors. We have to learn to believe the love we AREN'T given. You can't love someone into loving you. (God I wish it were that easy) You can’t force someone to be loyal, kind, understanding. You can’t force someone to be the person you need them to be. Even if it's for their own good!! Sometimes the person you want most is the person you’re best without. __ You have to understand... some things ARE supposed to happen in your life, but they just are NOT meant to be. Damn... It took me so many years to understand that. Don’t lose yourself by trying to fix what’s meant to stay broken. God always has a plan even if we can't understand it (or don't want to understand it) Even in the darkest of places... Our Lord sees His vision. We might not understand it at the moment but I promise you, your future will always bring understanding and clarity of why things didn’t work out. Don’t put your happiness on hold for someone (family, friend, partner) who isn’t holding on to you. "A Girl once told me… Be careful when trying to fix a broken person. For you may cut yourself on their shattered pieces."
Khloé doesn’t say whether the post is about Odom, but it comes days after he was spotted at a Los Angeles bar before heading to Easter church service with the Kardashian family. Even though reports surfaced alleging that Odom was drinking at the bar, Us Weekly reported that he was buying drinks for his friends.
“Khloé’s security guard was with him, which is just like having Khloé with you,” the source said. “He just wanted to get out into the real world for a second and feel normal.”
