*After putting her divorce on hold and consistently being there for her estranged husband Lamar Odom to no avail, Khloe Kardashian is reportedly calling it quits on trying to save the former NBA star.
According to TMZ Sports, Kardashian’s surrender stems from realizing that she cannot save someone who doesn’t want to be saved. Putting her thoughts in an emotional Instagram message on Sunday (April 10), Kardashian touched on her failed efforts to help Odom, who has not honored her help as he currently becomes embroiled his issues.
“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,” Kardashian wrote as she clearly realized that she can’t be her husband’s savior.
In Kardashian’s eyes, to even attempt to do so would invite disaster.
“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,” she said.
Kardashian’s manifesto marks the latest in her roller-coaster relationship with Odom. After he nearly died from overdosing on cocaine at a Nevada brothel, Kardashian abandoned her attempt to divorce Odom. Despite her willingness to help him get back on his feet and be there for him, Khloe ended up reviving her divorce efforts when she got word that Odom was drinking again when he was spotted in a San Fernando Valley bar last week.
TMZ notes that Odom was caught drinking at the Johnny O’Brien pub, an Irish bar in in Sherman Oaks, CA, early Easter Sunday morning. Staffers at the bar confirmed that Odom paid for three Remy Martin drinks he ordered. The former athlete’s drink run took place hours before he went to church with the Kardashian family
With all of that, it looks as though Khloe is under the impression that Odom is a hopeless case.
“Don’t lose yourself by trying to fix what’s meant to stay broken,” she wrote.

“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.”
