“‘You don’t know what you got till it’s gone.’ I say, you knew what you had, you just never thought it could slip away,” she began the post. “We often take for granted the very things that deserve our gratitude the most. We do this with both people and material possessions. The problem is many people do not realize this until it’s too late.”
As previously reported, Kardashian, 31, recently decided to cut Odom, 36, out of her life after finding out that he had relapsed into his former drug habits. (The former NBA player made headlines last October after he was hospitalized for an overdose at a legal Nevada brothel.)
“We take things for granted on a daily basis, always with the assumption that whenever we need something, it will be there,” the reality star continued. “There are many things that we fail to realize the true value of until they are missing from our lives. Sadly.”
Later, after deleting the post, Kardashian posted another, shorter thought.
“We’d learn so much more about ourselves if we took the time to observe and reflect on our own actions instead of another’s,” she wrote, later tweeting at fans who assumed her post was about Odom.
“Interesting … When you post too many selfies then you are narcissistic and vain. When you post insightful thoughts they automatically make it about someone and take away the meaning of creative writing. They turn it negative," she tweeted. "I’m here to uplift and hopefully help someone as I’ve been helped by encouraging words.”
A source close to Kardashian told Us that the former Kocktails With Khloé host has already kicked Odom out of the Calabasas, California, home she had leased for him as he recuperated.
“She can’t watch him fall apart again,” the insider said.
Odom, who was released from Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles earlier this year and made his first public appearance at Kanye West’s New York Fashion Week show in February, has reportedly gone back to his old partying ways.
“More than anything, Khloé wants to be in Lamar’s life,” the source told Us, “but only if he gets healthy.”
The Strong Looks Better Naked author previously halted proceedings for her divorce from Odom while he was hospitalized, but in May, the reality star filed for divorce a second time.
