Poor Khloé Kardashian.
The 31-year-old reality star took to Instagram to share her candid feelings about her estranged husband Lamar Odom — and what she revealed is absolutely heartbreaking.
“It doesn’t matter how loyal you are to someone. You can’t change someone’s heart and bad habits unless they want to themselves,” the pic read.
She captioned the 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 people’s 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 one’s 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 mind 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 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 are just NOT meant to be. Damn… It took me so many years to understand that.

“Don’t lose yourself 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 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.’”
This comes on the heels of reports that the 36-year-old relapsed and was drinking again less than six months after his near-fatal overdose.
As In Touch previously reported, Lamar also refused to take a drug test for his estranged wife.
“They had a heated confrontation, and Khloé demanded that Lamar take a drug test right there on the spot. She said a doctor could be there within the hour to take blood,” a Kardashian insider told In Touch. “Lamar refused and denied he was using.”
