It's been six months since news broke that Kim Kardashian was held at gunpoint in a horrifying robbery in Paris.
Since then, the reality TV personality has kept a relatively low profile. It took her months to return social media and public appearances.
Rightfully so. She was tied up and gagged by five robbers who took it upon themselves to rob her in her No Address Hotel room.
We finally got some much-needed insight into what happened on that horrific night on the most recent episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
Even after all this time, a source has confirmed to People that the reality star is still trying to move on with her life, but it's not an easy task.
“Kim has come a long way from the robbery but that said, it’s a daily struggle to move past it and she probably never will be past it entirely,” says the source.
It definitely makes sense that she would struggle to get over what happened to her. It's something she will probably still have to haunt her in many years.
She has been vocal about thinking she was going to lose her life. That's the sort of thing that would emotionally scar someone.
Another source confirmed that “Kim still speaks of the robbery as the most horrific experience she has ever had” and “is still vulnerable and cries about the robbery.”
When Kim first returned to Instagram, she posted a cute family photo which showed she was focusing on family.
The source even sheds some light on what happened when Kanye West wound up in the hospital.
“While she would never wish the experience on anyone, it put things into better perspective for her — what really matters, and that family comes first. To have the Kanye situation happen right after was just the worst timing.”
“She wasn’t emotionally equipped to handle that at the time, and it strained their relationship and put a ton of stress and anxiety back into her life. They’ve worked through a lot of that and have gotten even closer. It was hard to relive it for the show, but in a way, it ended up being cathartic and helped her work through and process it even more.”
Now that she is slowly, but surely, returning to her former self, it has been alleged by the source that Kim likes the changes in the wake of the attack.
“She very much likes her new normal. She knows that if the robbery never happened, these changes wouldn’t have happened either. She is taking the horrific experience and focusing on the good aftermath. Before the robbery, Kim was often stressed out about her family/work balance. She many times felt that work overtook and she often missed her kids,” says the second source. “
This all changed after the robbery. Now, Kim very much enjoys being a mom first. Work comes second. She loves being at home with her kids and is much happier.”
