Instagram, the photo-sharing social media network can become vapid and routine—as some users have decided to veer away from the crowd and post ‘honest’ photos. It can also be a place to share honest emotions and thoughts, as did reality television star, Khloe Kardashian, on April 10.
The 31-year-old entrepreneur posted a lengthy message on her Instagram page that had some believing was in reference to her estranged husband, Lamar Odom.
The text post read: “It doesn’t matter how loyal you are to someone. You can’t change someone’s heart or bad habits unless they want to themselves.”
There are reports that former NBA player Odom has fallen off the wagon and is back abusing substances.
Accompanied with the post was a long caption that began with, “Letting go doesn’t mean that you don’t care about someone anymore,” Kardashian wrote. “It’s just realizing that the only person you really have control over is yourself.”
“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.
