Despite certain privileges Kim Kardashian‘s fame have afforded her, like millions of people coping with the fraught nature of life in a pandemic, she too has been feeling overwhelmed.
Taking to her usual vessel of social media, the 40-year-old mother of four shared a photo that resonates with the chaos of the past year as she held an agitated eight-year-old Penelope Disick and screaming daughter North, seven.
A snapshot of a tantrum waiting to unfold, Kim wrote ‘2020 as a photo,’ as she looked stressed out while trying to defuse the tumultuous situation.

Though stylistically posted in black and white, the temper tantrum in process screamed through the lense of the camera as sister Kourtney’s daughter put her hand by North’s face.
Trying to add space between the warring cousins, Kim held her arm around Penelope while looking animated as she visibly tried to mediate the situation with words.
Despite putting a crying-laughing face emoji at the end of her caption, there were no doubts that these sorts of antics are a daily occurrence as she continues to spend an extended period of time daily with her four children – North, Saint, four, Chicago, two, and Psalm, one.

On a recent episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians that showed a glimpse of the family’s life in quarantine, Kim spoke to good pal Khadijah Haqq to air out some parenting grievances.
‘I literally am feeling like an awful mom just letting her cry in the other room and figuring it out. It’s just like, I can’t,’ she said referring to daughter Chicago.
The show also shared footage of Kim trying to take a minute for herself in the bathroom while North barged in and called her ‘mean.’
‘I think it’s just really overwhelming because every last task is my responsibility and it’s really hard to juggle it all with four kids,’ she said, also adding that husband Kanye West – who has had his own share of issues with his bipolar disorder this year – is often not present.

Kim also has been facing challenges in her marriage with Kanye following his frequent unhinged outbursts on Twitter and a series of bizarre antics that included a run for President.
Making a statement over the summer after Kanye likened mom Kris Jenner to Kim Jong Un and started drama with now ex-pal Larsa Pippen on social media, Kim asked for ‘compassion and empathy,’ from the public as the family dealt with their issues.
Though Kim has been hard at work with her budding legal career continuing to help death row inmates and donating money to causes close to her heart like the conflict in Armenia, she is not immune to constant scrutiny and backlash.
A recent controversial birthday trip to a private Tahitian island that included jetting 50 friends to stay at a resort that costs upwards of $20K per night, landed Kim in hot water as she and her family callously seemed to ignore the pandemic running rampant, while flaunting their wealth among record unemployment.
