Khloe Kardashian Gets Real About ‘Letting Go’ In Heartfelt Instagram Essay

Khloe, are you OK? 

The youngest Kardashian sister has always been one to wear her heart on her sleeve, but this lengthy Instagram essay she shared on Sunday might contain her most honest admission yet. 

Kardashian posted a quote on Instagram about the impossibility of changing the ones you love. “It doesn’t matter how loyal you are to someone,” it reads. “You can’t change someone’s heart and bad habits unless they want to themselves.”

In the caption, she described the process of “letting go” and the strength it takes to “stop taking on peoples problems as if they are our own.”

“Stop shattering your own heart by trying to make a relationship (friend, family, partner) work that clearly isn’t meant to work,” she wrote. “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.”

“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.”

Although Kardashian doesn’t name a specific person in the essay, it’s hard to read without thinking of her relationship with her husband, Lamar Odom. She nursed Odom back to health after he was hospitalized in October, and has stood by the basketball player through thick and thin.

But we do know the two have had their ups and downs, and the post may be a hint that she’s ready to let go.
