Kourtney Kardashian recently delved into her personal journey of self-awareness and healing, attributing her past relationship choices to what she termed as "generational trauma." The reality star, known for her past on-off relationship with Scott Disick and her current union with musician Travis Barker, shared her insights during a conversation about therapy on the latest episode of 'The Kardashians'.
Reflecting on her own experiences, Kourtney acknowledged that her initial entry into therapy stemmed from a toxic relationship. Through this process, she gained valuable insights into herself, her family dynamics, childhood wounds, and the ways in which these aspects manifest in intimate relationships, referring to it as generational trauma.
Having three children with Scott and recently welcoming a son, Rocky, with Travis, Kourtney emphasized the importance of breaking certain patterns to prevent passing down emotional baggage to the next generation.
However, her sister Khloe expressed skepticism about the efficacy of counseling, suggesting that confronting life's challenges head-on might suffice. Despite this, Kourtney remained resolute about the significance of therapy in breaking detrimental patterns, particularly in relationships, considering it essential to avoid repeating past mistakes.
Discussing the family's relationship history, Kourtney attributed certain patterns, like choosing partners with the intent to change them, to generational traits within their family lineage, notably mentioning their grandmother's history of multiple marriages.
Kris Jenner, their mother, diverted from revisiting the past, focusing instead on her present contentment, while Khloe lightheartedly remarked on the contrast between Kourtney's therapy-oriented approach and their mother's more resistant stance.
Kourtney concluded by expressing her recognition that various family members could benefit from therapy but stressed her choice to cease attempting to alter others, instead opting to accept everyone for who they are, acknowledging each individual's unique journey.
