Khloe Kardashian is fed up with the antics of her estranged husband and former NBA star Lamar Odom as she re-files a divorce, Thursday claiming that the first time she filed it was out of “pity” but this time she is determined to end her marriage with him.
As reported by TMZ, Kardashian stated it was never about getting back with Lamar, the first time she filed the divorce it so happened that Odom was found unconscious inside a brothel in Las Vegas and went to come. Kardashian added that she pulled for the dismiss of the divorce she filed so as not to upset Odom during his recovery period. Now, Kardashian is fed up with Odom going back to his old self and to his old habits, and she does not want any of it.
The report added that with the help of her attorney, Laura Wasser, Kardashian filed for divorce claiming irreconcilable differences as her main reason, which was also her reason for filing the first divorce. It also stated that a prenuptial agreement has been in place and the two have worked out a property settlement, which is waiting for approval.
After recovering from his coma, many thought Odom was on the road to recovery, but to the surprise of all even of Odom’s closest friends, the 36-year old former Los Angeles Lakers, and Los Angeles Clippers star went back to drinking and substance abuse. Odom was first spotted drinking inside an Irish pub on the eve of Easter Sunday and then was followed by a photo that saw Odom inside a bar within the Beverly Center pouring up a cognac.
Even Odom’s inner circle of friends has expressed their concern for Odom’s health and they are worried that another episode of what took place in Nevada could be in the making. Rumors have it that Odom’s drinking has caused tension between him and Kardashian, which might have led to the filing of the divorce. Feeling helpless, Kardashian brought it to social media and air out her frustrations regarding Odom’s drinking spree problem.
"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. 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. "People say time heals all wounds… I say time heals wounds but scars are left to remind you what you have been through and what you survived." 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. We might not understand it at the moment but I promise you, your future will always bring understanding and 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."
Odom promised to work things out with Kardashian in a hope to salvage their marriage and he stated that he will not let go of her. But things are running the other way as Kardashian is determined to end their marriage to elevate herself of stress and the feeling of being helpless. Thus, the two will next meet inside a courtroom to discuss the entirety of their divorce and Kardashian hopes Odom will not look like a bum on the street looking wasted.
Everything happens for a reason… Right?! I'm a firm believer of this saying. We may not understand why we have to walk a certain path or why when it rains, it pours but trust that God has a plan. "Walk by faith, not by sight." We must lose in order to gain. Lessons are best taught through our darkest hour. Through crying and defeat. Through sorrow and loss. All of my pain or sadness has only built my strength, soul, character and wisdom. One day, all of our trails and tribulations will add up and make perfect sense. Until that day comes, learn to laugh at confusion and dance in the rain. "The pain that you have been feeling, can't compare to the joy that's coming" Romans 8:18
