Kim Kardashian West seems to have had a paradigm shift in perspective since her life-threatening experience being robbed at gunpoint in her own apartment.
TMZ reported that Kardashian will take precautionary measures when displaying her wealth to her millions of followers across her social media platforms.
“Material things mean nothing. It’s not all about the money,” Kardashian said, according to a source. “It’s not worth it.”
Kardashian will also take a month long break from work, as she recently cancelled an Oct. 14 makeup demonstration with her makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic in Dubai.

The reality television star faced a heap of criticism after news broke that she was the victim of a burglary during Paris Fashion Week, with many insinuating that she was partly to blame for the attack.
Most notably, Karl Lagerfeld suggested that Kardashian was to blame for the attack because she consistently flaunted her riches online.
“You cannot display your wealth and then be surprised that some people want to share it with you,” the designer told reporters after his Chanel show on Oct. 4. “If you’re that famous and you put all your jewellery on the net, you go to hotels where nobody can come near to the room.”
Other social media users and former bodyguard Steve Stanulis have implied that Kardashian’s social media postings made her a target.
“I saw this happening. It just had to with the way Kim flaunts her riches and her diamonds,” Stanulis said. “She has nearly 50 million people (on Twitter) who at any moment and on any day know where she is. And then she shows them this mighty great expensive rock on her hand a few hours before and she invites trouble.”
Kardashian was held at gunpoint by men dressed as police who barged into her private apartment on Oct.3, making away with over $11 million in jewelry and $1,000 in cash. The attack occurred three days after she was reportedly followed by suspicious-looking men who infiltrated the paparazzi on Sept. 28.
The men have yet to be captured and the investigation is ongoing.
