Whether or not you like the Reality Princess, Kim Kardashian the reality is (pun intended) that she is everywhere and no matter where you go, there she is. She’s on your television, your billboards and her face appears wherever you shop. You can’t escape the KK. A flawed woman she is indeed and I share in that flawed nature. However you view her, I must admit that there are two things that I do admire in this woman.
Her ability to stand out and her wild nature to take chances despite popular opinion. Meaning she’s found her niche and she rocks it to the fullest and in terms of her taking chances, well it’s clear this girl is not giving up on love. I won’t go into what I agree and disagree about her as I don’t feel it serves anyone to keep score or weigh in to her shortcomings, but I will share that I which I admire.
One in dating, whether your a man or a woman, the one thing that sets you apart from the rest is to discover the uniqueness of you and to let that stand out. Whether your fat, skinny, short, tall, rich, not so rich, funny, not funny, smart, or dumb as bricks, you have to find what you have going for you and really let that part speak loud and clear. The person who really desire will be drawn to the uniqueness of you and the time wasters will steer clear, that is if you’re true to yourself.
In highschool I was teased about being odd and at times acting like one of the boys. While there may have been some areas where I have refined myself, there are those parts of me that are incredibly quirky and that boyish side makes it very easy for me to connect with the guys. Rather than throwing this to the wayside because others thought it wasn’t correct or overly different, I’ve decided to own it. It makes me me.
Kim Kardashian has owned her curves, her short body and has highlighted the things that others would probably encourage her to change. The other portion that I admire is her ability to take chances. Despite a very brief stint in marriage and the public humiliation that came with it, she has moved on. Now this is where we’re all ready to yell, scream, cuss and share our disdain, but one thing we cannot deny is this, it takes guts to publicly give it another go.
What about you? Have you had some public humiliation in the area of love and it’s shamed you in from even trying? Being a young woman who went through a divorce after 7 years of marriage, I was naturally humiliated. But the humiliation couldn’t carry the weightiness of my identity. I knew that I had a great deal to offer and despite my failed marriage, it would never deem me personally as a failure. It was a part of my life, but never would I allow it to define my existence. I refused to be put in that box. So I owned it. I owned the power of my identity, the greatness of who I am and dated from that posture.
Find the unique side of you and rock it. Despite your failures in love, never allow failure to pave the road of your future. It may help set you on the right course by learning from it, but never is it meant to replace your identity. If Kim Kardashian isn’t your cup of tea, at least be smart enough to learn a thing or two from her. Your mistakes can be turned into your glory, your shame can be turned into your victory, but for things to change, you must be willing to turn.
