The reason I decided to write this post today is as a result of the ongoing situation with Khloe Kardashian and her “still” husband Lamar Odom. He is still officially her husband because their divorce isn’t finalized yet and they apparently recently signed a divorce dismissal meaning their divorce is currently on hold.
While I was reading their story, it made me realize that Khloe has actually given up so much in order to see Lamar through his recovery process. She put her relationship with James Harden on hold, she also put her book tour on hold and she is currently at war with her ex step dad Caitlyn Jenner – ALL FOR LAMAR!
This obviously led me to ask the ultimate question. WHY?
Why is she putting herself through all of this? I understand she shared a big part of her life with Lamar but for someone that has been en route to a divorce for a few years now and is currently in a relationship with someone else, WHY is she so involved in the recovery process of her almost ex husband?
Suddenly, the reason became glaring, SHE IS STILL IN LOVE WITH HIM.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mean we only love once, NO! I mean we only have one “LOVE OF OUR LIVE”. The rest would just be the regular type of love. Like the type we would have for someone close to us or for our family or kids.
But I strongly believe that HEAD OVER HEELS, ONE OF A KIND, OVER THE MOON, CAN DIE FOR YOU kind of love only happens ONCE in our lifetime.
Some of us are very lucky to find it while others wander the face of the Earth throughout their existence but unfortunately are never opportune to bask in the embrace of this magnificent thing called TRUE LOVE.
Take Khloe for instance, she was madly in love with Lamar when she filed for a divorce. But she still went ahead and filed because it was better to be away from him than to be with him and watch him hurt himself with the drugs he was abusing.
But then because of the amount of love she still has for him in her heart (true love never really goes away), even after three years of the so called “divorce filing” and separation, she CANNOT seem to stay away from him now that he is in a terrible predicament.
She willingly jeopardized her career, relationship, family, amongst other things just for someone that she supposedly didn’t want to be with anymore and now they have dismissed their divorce?
IF THAT ISN’T TRUE LOVE THEN PLEASE TELL ME WHAT IS!
Clearly, Khloe must really love Lamar. And I believe that he is her one true love but then I often wonder if he hadn’t gotten himself intertwined with drugs and their divorce had actually gotten finalized and she basically MOVED ON, I often wonder if she would have EVER loved anyone like she loved him.
This also makes me think about life in general. For those of us that have loved and lost, have we really ever been able to love again? And I mean REALLY LOVE AGAIN?
I do not mean tolerate the person or just be in a convenient relationship. I mean utterly love the person to the point where you no longer remember or reminisce on whatever it is you shared with the other person.
As for me, I really do believe that there is only one person out there for each of us just like there was only one Eve for Adam. And like I said earlier, some of us are lucky enough to find our Eve while the rest make the best out of what we have.
But you can never miss what you never had so for those that probably haven’t encountered their one true love, you have absolutely nothing to worry about but for those that have and lost it, it is a pity that you lost it. And for the lucky bunch still living with it, hold on to it forever. LOVE IS BEAUTIFUL!
Is it really possible to truly love more than one person in a lifetime?
