Khloé Kardashian is the picture of positivity.

On Wednesday, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star started her day with an encouraging message to her followers: “Good morning!” she tweeted. “Wishing everyone great vibes! Stay smiling.”

On her Instagram Story, she also posted a photo of her and Tristan Thompson‘s daughter True, who turns 1 on Friday.

The posts comes exactly one year after Thompson’s alleged infidelities first came to light. On April 10, 2018, just two days before she gave birth to True, the basketball player was caught on video getting close to an unidentified woman in a New York City lounge. At the same time, TMZ published footage from October 2017 allegedly depicting Thompson kissing one woman while a different woman groped him at a hookah lounge outside of Washington, D.C.

Kardashian, 34, and Thompson, 28, had been dating since September 2016. When the cheating scandal broke, a source told PEOPLE that it had been “a long time coming.”

“Tristan has been consistently cheating on Khloé,” the source alleged. “He’s a serial cheater. And there will be more women to come out of the woodwork.”

Thompson has never publicly addressed the allegations, but the drama unfolded in excruciating detail on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, with the reality star admitting the situation was “humiliating” and calling Thompson a “complete piece of s—.”

Nevertheless, she forgave him, and they spent the summer rebuilding their relationship in Los Angeles. But things took another downward turn in January, with the two living apart and barely spending any time together.

Then the next cheating scandal broke — and this one hit close to home for Kardashian. In February, reports surfaced that Thompson had hooked up with Jordyn Woods, her sister Kylie Jenner‘s longtime best friend.

On March 1, Woods, 21, shared her side of the story in a tell-all interview, claiming Thompson kissed her at an afterparty at his house on Feb. 17. Though she adamantly denied having sex with him, she admitted that the next day, while she told Kardashian and Jenner, 21, that she had been at Thompson’s house, she didn’t disclose what had happened between them.

Kardashian initially slammed Woods on Twitter after the interview, blaming her for breaking up her family, but she softened her tone a day later and placed the fault instead on Thompson.

“This has been an awful week & I know everyone is sick of hearing about it all (as am I). I’m a rollercoaster of emotions & have said things I shouldn’t have,” she tweeted on March 2. “Honestly, Tristan cheating on me & humiliating me, wasn’t such a shock as the first time.”

“What’s been harder & more painful is being hurt by someone so close to me,” she admitted. “Someone whom I love & treat like a little sister. But Jordyn is not to be blamed for the breakup of my family. This was Tristan’s fault. I have to move on with my life & count my blessings, my family, my health, & my beautiful baby True.”

A source told PEOPLE last week that Kardashian is doing much better and that her “heartbreak seems to have passed.”

“Although she really wanted Tristan to come around, grow up and be a man, she seems to have realized that she’s much better off now,” said the source. “Everyone is happy to see her happier.”

According to the source, Kardashian hasn’t jumped back into the dating scene yet, but will “eventually.”

“Khloé isn’t dating, but at least she’s able to talk and joke about dating,” the source said. “She realizes with True around now, she just needs to be super picky.”

“True will always be Khloé’s life and number one,” the source added. “Khloé is obsessed with her little girl. She really is the most wonderful mom.”
