It’s almost the end of cuffing season — the winter months where those who would much rather be single get « handcuffed » in a relationship to endure the cold and ofttimes lonely nights mostly spent indoors. But as the temperature heats up, many are breaking up.
Newly single Khloé Kardashian isn’t a stranger to breaking up with someone. She recently revealed on her show, « Kocktails with Khloe » that she called it quits with NBA player James Harden due to infidelity.
Kardashian also remained in the headlines late last year after her estranged husband, Lamar Odom, was hospitalized due to an overdose and she called off their divorce in an effort to focus on his health.
« I definitely think Lamar was my soulmate but I still think that you can have different soulmates for different layers of your life, » the reality star told ABC News at the launch of the Kybella’s Live Chin Up campaign. « I’ll never discredit our journey together and the way that we loved and I’ll never apologize for that. Now, that doesn’t mean I can’t have another soulmate. »
So how does Kardashian move on from heartbreak? The reality TV star told ABC News her three-step process to getting over a breakup.
Step 1: Don’t Be Mean, Be Nice
« I like to be nice. Someone was in your life intimately for a reason so let’s not just be hurtful and spiteful, » she advised. « I try to always keep my composure and with social media. On any level, it’s easy to get wrapped up in what everyone else is saying…Don’t listen to everybody. Let’s just go to our separate corners and be cordial. »
Step 2: Surround Yourself with Positive People
« I remember when I was going through my divorce, I just hung out with my family a lot more and you just keep the positive happy people around you. That’s really my key to everything, » Kardashian said.
Step 3: The Gym Is Your Friend
« I feel so much stronger mentally from the gym, » she explained. « It’s not really about body. It’s not about ‘God, I’ve got to fit into a size 2.’ I think people focus too much on the physical attributes rather than the mental. »
