The reality star took to Instagram Saturday to share a few pieces of wisdom with her many followers. Alongside a photo of the quote, “You never really see how toxic someone is until you breathe fresher air,” Kardashian, 31, penned a lengthy caption about the importance of removing toxic people from your life.

The post reads: “Let me remind you that we don’t need anybody’s approval to be happy in life. It’s on you to validate and accept your version of happiness. Take the control back. You choose your life. Don’t let anyone else decide for you. We are no victims to life. No prisoners. But we do become victims and prisoners to the people we choose to surround ourselves with. We tend to become content, passive and blind within our relationships. Whether it be a family member, business partner, friend or a lover. Out of comfort and possibly fear. The unknown will leave you stuck in a bad situation. Choosing comfort over your own happiness.”
“Never forget that fate loves the fearless,” she continued. “Today’s wisdom was yesterday’s pain. Tomorrows happiness is today’s bravery. Never be fearful of letting go, for sometimes holding on can damage you deeper. Those scars run deep. There’s a huge difference between giving up and letting go. Giving up means you are selling yourself short. It means allowing fear to limit your opportunities and keep you cemented in place. Stuck. Letting go means freeing yourself from something that is no longer beneficial to your personal growth. It means removing toxic people and toxic mindsets from your life so that you can make room for relationships and ideas that are conducive to your happiness and ever evolving personal expansion.
“Giving up is self-defeat,” she continued. “Letting go is self-love. Letting go means putting yourself first instead of holding on to that negative space you don’t deserve. Nobody deserves. Removing toxic people from your life is only allowing room for a positive flow to elevate your mind, body and soul. Not everyone who started with you will finish with you. Be OK with that. ‘God Helps Those Who Help Themselves.’ ”
Kardashian’s mother Kris Jenner regrammed the message, adding her #proudmama hashtag.
“God helps those who help themselves.” #repost @khloekardashian #proudmama #love #choosehappiness,” Jenner wrote.
It’s been a dramatic week for the Kardashian family after Kim Kardashian West‘s husband Kanye West went on a series of Twitter rants, saying he was “$53 million in personal debt” and claiming Taylor Swift had given her approval for his new song “Famous,” where he raps, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/ Why? I made that bitch famous (God damn)/ I made that bitch famous.”
Swift’s rep denied that she had ever given her approval for the song and the singer made a reference to people “taking credit” for other artists’ successes when she accepted the award for best album at the Grammys on Monday.
