Reality TV star Khloe Kardashian has suggested, in an Instagram post, that she is giving up trying to help and change Lamar Odom. The “Kocktails With Khloe” host has been by her estranged husband’s side since his near-fatal collapse in a Nevada brothel last October, but appears to be distancing herself from the basketball player, who was revealed to have been drinking again last month, after realising she can’t force him to change, reported Female First.
Khloe, 31, posted a quote on Instagram that read, “It doesn’t matter how loyal you are to someone. You can’t change someone’s heart and bad habits unless they want to themselves.” She added a heartfelt caption.
“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,” the star wrote. She also said loyalty and understanding cannot be forced. “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. (sic),” Khloe added.
