Khloe and Lamar: Love VS Guilt/ Pity

By Ogoo "Mojimo" uzoma


Khloe Kardashian has filed a petition to withdraw divorce papers she filed almost 2 years ago. This obviously stems from Lamar Odom's very close brush with death last week. Lamar Odom was found unresponsive in a Nevada brothel after he allegedly consumed a cocktail of drugs including sexual performance enhancement drugs and cocaine.khloe has been by his side from the moment he was admitted intohospital. The couple had been separated mainly because of his drug addiction.

Now the question that's going through my mind about the whole thing is this: Would Khloe have made this move any time in the future if she hadn't come close to losing him forever? If she hadn't gone through
such a level of emotional turmoil? Is she a victim of emotional blackmail?

People, this thing isn't about Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom. They're probably back together because they're totally nuts about each other and all that crap was just a minor setback. Probably. Maybe. But
maybe not. Lots of people (not everybody!) have been forced to stay with or go back to their partners. Forced to mostly because of one of these two niggling things. Pity and guilt.

If your presence is going to help someone be a better person, it'll be pretty hard for someone with conscience to just walk away. I wouldn't. But I also wouldn't commit myself to a lifetime of unhappiness just
because I felt pity.

Don't get me wrong, I love second chances. The process of righting wrongs and making up for lost time is always so beautiful to watch, the sincere effort is always refreshing. A stronger bond is usually the reward. Usually being the operative word here.Being with someone based on pity or guilt is just wrong. You're not
being fair to that person or to yourself. Compassion should help you enrich the life of the other person, Love should be the only reason you should consider being a part of that person's life on a whole
other level.
Maybe I'm a hopeless romantic. But I think Love conquers all. Not pity. Or guilt.
