The Instagram post

She posted a picture to Instagram with the words “Tell me about your heart.” And tell her followers about her heart she did. In the caption of the post, the reality star and businesswoman wrote a brief essay about the strength in “letting go.”    

“RP from a 2016 post ‘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,” she wrote.

She went on to discuss the pain in wanting the best for someone who doesn’t want the best for themselves.

“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.”

She told her followers that, going forward, she’s making a point to stop breaking her own heart.

“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.”  

Who is the post for?

It’s hard to tell exacly who Khloe is addressing in the post. Is she warning her followers not to fall into the same traps she’s repeatedly fallen into? With her extensive reach, chances are, there are thousands of women and men following the reality star who probably need to hear this message. Is she hoping Tristan will see it? Jordyn? Maybe she’s still trying to convince herself.

“We might not understand it at the moment but I promise you, your future will always bring understanding & 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.’”
