Kourtney Kardashian Admits She Felt ‘Pressure’ When Her Sisters’ Careers Took Off

Kourtney Kardashian has had many jobs during her lifetime, but it seems like she’s only recently found a career that she really loves. In case you haven’t heard, she’s the owner of the lifestyle website, Poosh, where visitors can find articles on everything from breakup playlists to the best products to cure acne scars. 

Now, the reality star has opened up to Glamour magazine about why she took longer than her sisters to find something she enjoys doing besides raising her three children, Mason, Penelope, and Reign.

Kardashian said she struggled to find her footing

Fans of Keeping Up with the Kardashians will remember how the sisters used to do everything together. From promoting QuickTrim dieting supplements to running the DASH stores, they were always teaming up for projects. So, when they later decided to pursue solo endeavors, Kardashian struggled to find her “thing.”

“We used to do all of our projects together, so when we started splitting up and doing our own, I think I felt like, Well what’s my thing?” Kardashian explained to Glamour on Aug. 13. “Everybody would put this pressure on me, even though I really just wanted to focus on being a mom. I didn’t want to take on something else.”

“But once I really took the time to do it, once I figured out when the time was right for me—and that it really fit into my life without overwhelming me—then it became fulfilling,” she continued.

Kardashian has faced backlash for her work ethic

Kardashian’s siblings have criticized her not having the same hectic work schedules as them (or most contributing members of society). In fact, she and her sisters, Khloé Kardashian and Kim Kardashian West, got into a full-fledged fight in a 2018 episode of KUWTK over the 40-year-old’s schedule. 

They’d been trying to plan a family photo shoot, but, when scheduling issues arose, Kardashian refused to cooperate. It didn’t sit well with Kim, who called her “the least exciting to look at.”

Kardashian later broke down over the moment during a phone call with Khloe. “I’m not here to be mistreated by my f*cking b*tch family,” a crying Kardashian said. “Kim saying that I’m the least interesting to look at — who even speaks like that? You don’t say things like that. You guys just have really different values than me. I choose to be a mother to my three kids. I’m not here looking for another job. I already work enough — more than I would like to.”

She previously wanted to get into interior design

Kardashian told her sisters in another 2018 episode that she found her “passion” in life: interior design. But they, again, criticized her work ethic. “This already sounds like too much of a commitment for you,” said Khloé. Kim added, “I think we’re just a little frustrated that you, like, never show up to do work.

Jokes on them because Kardashian also shares interior design tips on her website. It’s funny how things work out — isn’t it?
