Kourtney Kardashian Opens Up About Therapy And Generational Trauma, Says Choosing Bad Partners Is Generational: “It’s From MJ”

Kourtney Kardashian is no stranger to drama, trauma, and public scrutiny, which is why she’s learned to prioritize her mental health. But as part of her journey, she’s also learned to understand and identify the source of triggers and flaws related to other women in her family.

In the latest episode of The Kardashians, the expecting mother of three sat down with her own mother, Kris Jenner, and sister, Khloe, to discuss the importance of self-care, feminine energy and how generational trauma affects their lineage.

“What about you makes you have this need to be so controlling,” Kourtney asked. “Are you ever curious about yourself about why you’re so controlling?
“You weren’t like that when you were in your 20s, but also you had a husband who led the way, and now you lead the way,” she continued, alluding to Jenner’s relationship with boyfriend, Corey Gamble. “It does exist; you can be back in your feminine energy whenever you desire.”

Though Jenner rejected Kourtney’s claim, assuring that she is in “heaven” with Gamble, Kourtney maintained her stance, explaining that feminine energy is “self-care, not overthinking, not overdoing.” She also discussed the importance of therapy and how it’s helped her shift her thinking.

“You know how True [Thompson] has eggs in her body right now?” Kourt said. “She had them in her when she was in your body.”

“She was inside of you when you were inside of mom. So [Grandma] MJ’s trauma and Nonna’s trauma is inside of me, and you, ‘cause it was inside of mom. Because mom was in their body,” she said. “It’s like, their traumas that get passed down, but it’s within a lot of things that we have within us.”

While her mother and sister weren’t completely on board with the conversation, Kourt expounded her point. “I didn’t start a self-awareness journey knowing what I was doing. I started therapy through a toxic relationship, and then learned so much about myself, about my family, about why I do certain things, about our childhood wounds, about how they show up in intimate relationships, generational trauma.”

“There’s certain patterns to break if you don’t wanna pass things down to your kids,” Kourtney explained to Khloe. “You think choosing bad partners is a genetic thing. I think it’s generational; it’s from MJ.”

“My mom tries to change subjects or not really face these types of topics, but it really does sink in,” Kourt continued in the confessional. “She sends me a video afterwards of saying, ‘There’s always that one daughter in the family who does things her way and heals all the family’s generational trauma,’ and I was like, ‘Ok, you were listening.”
