Khloé Kardashian has had a year full of ups and downs, but she seems to know the best way to deal with it.

In a lengthy post on her Instagram, Kardashian preached to her followers about the power of self-love and how it’s sometimes important to take care of yourself before other people.
“Sometimes we have to stop being so giving to others because in the process we end up destroying the part of us that needs to be giving to ourselves,” she wrote. “I find that people may be practicing self care on so many levels but abandon themselves emotionally. So many search for others to make them feel whole. Try to stop searching for your missing pieces in other people or material things. Self-love or personal happiness should never be contingent on success because there are always failures to contend with no matter what level.”
It makes sense that Kardashian might be taking some time for herself, as she’s been by Lamar Odom’s side almost constantly since a drug overdose landed him in the hospital last October. She also recently broke things off with James Harden, whom she was dating during Odom’s health crisis. In her post, she continues, “Self-love is dynamic and runs deep. When we act in ways that expand our self-love, we begin to expand our minds. We start to notice the parts we once abandoned. We will find dimensions of our soul that need attention too. We begin to know exactly what we deserve and we shouldn’t settle for anything less. Don’t apologize for your past for it made you who you are today. Make your past fuel your future and the way you choose to live. Be in the now!”
