Finding the good in the bad

Kim-Kardashian-Tonight-show-jay-leno-dolce-and-gabbana-sheer-dressI recently saw this post on Tumblr and like to think of it as ‘proof’ that good can be taken from any bad situation.

“THIS IS YOUR DAILY REMINDER THAT KIM KARDASHIAN TOOK A MAN’S BETRAYAL OF HER TRUST AND TURNED IT INTO A MULTI MILLION DOLLAR INDUSTRY.

Seriously, this woman was betrayed and humiliated by someone she thought she could trust, had her personal life and sex lifeΒ all over the internet, and rebounded to become one of the most famous people in our culture right now. You might say that Kim K and the Kardashians are “famous for nothing” but you have to have some respect for a woman who completely turned that situation on its head and rewrote the script to prioritise her own agency. Our culture doesn’t allow that for too many women, so let’s not forget how impressive that is.”

I definitely wouldn’t consider myself a huge Kardashian fan, but whatever your opinion, there is no denying the fact that using such a humiliating situation to her advantage and creating something positive for herself and her family was smart and courageous. In the toughest of times when we are feeling sad, lonely, embarrassed or filled with anger and despair, we often forget that “happiness can be found in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.” Yes, I just quoted Albus Dumbledore (I’m a big Harry Potter fan). At those times it seems like our pain will last forever, but it doesn’t, ESPECIALLY if initiative is taken to find the positive amongst the negative.

I suggest that the next time you feel like there is nothing you can do to fix or change your luck – think like Kim Kardashian, and “rewrite the script to prioritise your own agency.”

  1. Cool post. Loving the message. It’s crazy how she turned her life completely around. She worked hard and got some major rewards!

  2. Great post! I love how you used this example. Kim definitely took advantage of the sex tape incident, and we can all learn a lesson from how she dealt with a negative situation so positively. Although I’m not a big Kardashian fan either, there’s no denying their success and influence on an international scale.

    • Thank you πŸ™‚ So many people focus on degrading Kim and her family, but they are overlooking the hard work and positive attitude it must have taken to deal with something so humiliating and use it to enrich her own life. She used the publicity to give attention to her endeavours (e.g. opening of DASH stores on KUWTK) and to create monetary income for both herself and her family. I can’t help but respect someone who turned such a bad situation around.

      Thank you so much for reading πŸ™‚ xxxx

    • Yep! She did have a little publicity due to famous friends and relationships, but nothing compared to the power and influence she has now. Goes to show that there is always hope, even when it seems like the world is against you! Thanks for reading πŸ™‚ xxxxx
