Kardashian says “goodbye” to a rough year

As many people did before 2019 came to a close, Kardashian took a moment to address the year that she was more than happy to move on from, writing in an Instagram post that accompanied video highlights from 2019.

She shared with her followers: “2019, I’m happily saying goodbye. They tell you that you shouldn’t look back but I’m going to suggest that you do. Be brave, look back and reflect on your past year; Or the past decade! It’s OK to remind yourself of what you went through and what you overcame.”

Kardashian continued: “We may not be able to control what happens to us but we can control how we react to it. We must remember that all things are powerless unless we give them power. So let that power be empathy, understanding, kindness, grace, love and respect. Remember that God has and always will have your back. Have faith that life will get better as long as we believe in ourselves. We must internally feel grateful for everything and strive to become better people daily.”

The reality star had some inspiring words to share about taking the time to recognize the positive things in your life, noting: “Remind yourself how incredible your life is. How you’re still standing, thriving, smiling. Sometimes we need to remind ourselves that what we take with us, is so much greater than what we left behind. I am choosing to only take with me the happiest of times! As I made this video of the past year; I can’t help but smile! True you are my entire heart! My happy place! My Forever and always! I love you.”

In closing, she wrote: “I pray you leave everything that does not serve you purpose, happiness, peace, love and health back in 2019. 2020 I welcome you with all of my heart!!”

Kardashian made peace after her ex cheated on her

In February 2019, Kardashian’s now ex-boyfriend Tristan Thompson cheated on her with her sister’s former BFF Jordyn Woods. The reality star suffered from the infidelity and the breakup, but moved on for the sake of their daughter, True.

During an interview on the Divorce Sucks podcast in May, Kardashian said of the breakup and co-parenting, “It does f**ing suck,” sharing, “There’s moments, because our personal emotions are still in there, and for me, you know, Tristan and I broke up not too long ago, so it’s really raw.”

She continued: “Those emotions can be heightened at times, but I do everything in my power to not even bring… True is like a year and a month old, so she doesn’t really know what’s happening, but to me, she does know. She feels energy, and I’m a big believer of that. So, I do everything in my power to not put any sort of heavy energy around her.”

In December, Kardashian explained in her Instagram Stories why she’s forgiven Thompson and Woods, noting in part, “I don’t hold any negative or hateful feelings towards ANYONE! I mean that. Life is short! We are all humans trying to figure out this thing called life. Who am I to condemn anyone else? Yes, I’m allowed to feel hurt and pain. It would be unnatural for me to pretend as if I don’t. Personally, I don’t want to be carrying around a hateful heart. I crave peace in my life. Me holding onto hate is only going to hurt me in the end.”

She further explained: “We are all human and make mistakes, myself included. Hate is heavy and I am tired of carrying all of that weight around.”
