"I know this sounds crazy, but I know that was meant to happen to me. I don't want to start crying, but I know that was so meant to happen," Kardashian told DeGeneres through tears. "I'm such a different person."
"I really feel like things happen in your life to teach you things," she explained.
"I was definitely materialistic before, not that there's anything bad with having things and working hard to get those things ... But I'm so happy that my kids get this me and that this is who I'm raising my kids [to be]."
"I don't care about that stuff anymore," the star said of her material wealth. "I don't care to show off the way that I used to. Truly, it's okay if you're proud of that and you work so hard and you get something. It's just not who I am anymore."
Kardashian was robbed of her cell phone and millions of dollars worth of jewelry Oct. 2 in Paris.
