Yes, I watch the Kardashians. I love the show! I also, based solely on the show, like the family. Some of my friends think they have low morals and don’t value marriage, but I disagree. They stick together as a family, they love each other, Mama Kris and Bruce Jenner have been married for 2 decades and seem to genuinely love each other. They make lots of money being savvy entrepreneurs — I think this irks some people, but I admire it.
The Kardashians seem like good people who have real, normal, personal issues. Who doesn’t?! That’s why we’re all here on Earth — to work things out, to learn, to grow and evolve, to bless and move on.
Part of what I admire so much about the Kardashians is their ability to recover after a disaster, to regroup, to forgive, to re-establish the important bonds between them all.
I think Kim Kardashian genuinely was in love with Kris Humphries and was the last one to realize that he wasn’t good for her.
Khloe tried to open her eyes to the truth, but Kim just wasn’t ready to see it. As someone who sees things that others often don’t, I understand Khloe’s conundrum. She risked her relationship with her sister and with her family in an attempt to save her sister from deep heartache, spiritual damage, and financial impacts. But it seems to me that Khloe cared most about making sure that Kim wasn’t taken advantage of in terms of love. That’s a great sister. I’m glad they were able to mend the rift before the wedding, I’m glad Khloe was able to see that Kim was really in love with Kris, I’m glad Khloe was there to support her if that’s what she wanted.
But in all of this, I see in Kim a sister who cares deeply enough to go to battle to help her sister. That is a good sister.
That is someone who has ethics and morals, conviction and courage.
And I deeply admire and appreciate that. So, rather than not watch the show just because Kim pulled out of a disastrous union before suffering at the hands of a man who isn’t good for her, I’m even more inclined to watch Keeping Up With The Kardashians because they have good relationships.
Witness Rob sacrificing his parents’ good opinion of him to protect his little sisters’ reputations with their parents, even when he knew they had deliberately set him up to get in trouble. That’s a wonderful big brother! And then when Kris and Bruce discovered his good intentions, they apologized to him and appreciated him.
I’m fascinated by relationships. I’m not phased by drama — it’s the stuff of life!
It’s what makes things interesting. Otherwise, no one would think twice about the name Will Shakespeare or Mark Twain.
It’s why people watch soap operas and movies. I was an English major with an unofficial minor in psychology. It didn’t occur to me at the time that they would be the underpinnings of my current career path. People used to tell me I should be a therapist, but I couldn’t see how anyone could stand all that pain all the time, how they could clear themselves of it. I had my own pain to deal with, for heaven’s sake! Dealing with other people’s seemed just too much. I also went through my share of bad relationships, both in my family of origin and with boyfriends. I learned alot, including how to clear myself of other people’s burdens, toxic energies that they inadvertently share during healings and coaching sessions. And now it’s what I specialize in. I have a keen eye, a psychic sense for what’s going on within people, what their true motives are, what they really want from someone or a situation. Like Khloe when she was warning Kim about her crummy fiance.
Sometimes we are sooooo into someone that we can’t, won’t, or just don’t want to see painful truths about them or about our relationship with them. That’s when it’s handy to have someone to talk with who’s not so in the middle of things, someone who’s on our side and can give us non-judgemental but supportive advice. It’s one of the best ways to make big changes in our life.
I know, personally, it took me years to leave a relationship with someone I really really truly loved even though the relationship wasn’t right for me. So I totally understand and have deep compassion for people who can’t make a change right away. However, I really applaud the ovaries it takes to make immediate change when something is not right for you. Good job, Kim!
