Welp, we still don't know exactly what's happening with Khloe Kardashian Odom and her estranged-ish-maybe-husband Lamar. But I have to give her this, whatever she's feeling, it's coming from a grounded place. Yesterday she posted another Instagram of herself in a top knot (that's not the grounded part) with the caption (here is the grounded part) "Love yourself for a lifetime rather than a moment." And then she gave a shout-out to her "glam squad," but I'm sure she means that she loves herself even when she's not all glammed up.
Because self love is what will sustain Khloe through all the madness she's going through. And that self love has to be unconditional -- it has to be there even when her life is complicated and when she's feeling unloveable. I wonder if Khloe's glam squad had just given her a pep talk right before she took that selfie?
If that's what happened, Khloe is one lucky woman. Not only does her crew make her glow on the outside, they also help her glow on the inside. I hope Khloe really does take those words -- whoever came up with them -- to heart.
After all, who else is going to love her for a lifetime? Well, her family, I'm sure. Maaaybe not Lamar. Just a guess. Khloe hasn't officially given up on her marriage yet, but she's probably preparing herself for a split. Regardless, she may be feeling like she's lost Lamar's love already, and that must sting. Who's going to love her now? The answer always has to start with herself.
And if Khloe really is able to love herself for a lifetime, I hope that love leads her to make choices that will truly lead her to happiness. You can't expect anyone to fill that deficit for you, if you don't love yourself. You can't expect an abundance of love in your life if you're not filling your love bucket yourself. And you can't give others love if you're not loving yourself. IT'S ALL ABOUT SELF LOVE, KHLOE. DO YOU LOVE YOURSELF ENOUGH? Will someone please hand me a tissue? I'm getting all emotional here!
Okay, I'm fine now. We're all fine here now, thank you. I'm glad we had this heart-to-heart. Khloe is going to be just fine, you guys. Just fine.
Do you think Khloe is preparing to face a split with Lamar?
