Looks like 2016 has gotten off to a stressful start for Khloe Kardashian who shared a cryptic quote, late on Monday, January 11, about the dangers of trying to fix a broken person.

In what has become a predictable habit for the sensitive Kardashian, the 31-year-old reality star gave fans something to ponder over with the publication of her latest thought-provoking quote.

"A girl once told me to be careful when trying to fix a broken person," she shared in her Instagram post. "For you may cut yourself on their shattered pieces."

Followers immediately started speculating about who the subject of the cryptic message might be -- with some suspecting her estranged husband, Lamar Odom, to be the person in question, whist others thought it was more likely relating to her brother, Rob Kardashian.

Both men in Khloe's life are facing their own personal struggles. Odom, 36, continues his recovery after his very public hospitalization back in October last year, and her brother Rob, 28, is facing his own demons related to confidence and weight gain, in addition to his recent diabetes diagnosis.

Khloe has spent a lot of time and effort trying to help her brother. She revealed recently that one of her methods has been trying to encourage him to get fit again.

"I told Rob a while back: the best form of revenge is a good body,” she explained during a blog post last week. "It’s a little silly but true. There is literally no downfall to working out your blues in the gym! You’ll feel better, and the by-product will be a fierce bod that’s bound to make your ex do a double-take.”
