Sometimes Kanye West doesn’t get enough credit.

For all his antics and larger-than-life persona, people sometimes forget that the writer of such songs as “Hey Mama” and “Family Business” can be a very compassionate and understanding man.

One of the biggest revelations during Bruce Jenner’s recent landmark interview with Diane Sawyer was that it was none other than West who helped Jenner’s stepdaughter, Kim Kardashian, come to terms with Jenner’s transition.

“Kim told me a story. She goes, ‘You know what really turned me around on thinking about this?’ I said, ‘What?’ She goes, ‘Kanye.’ I went, ‘Oh, OK,’ ” Jenner said. “He says to Kim, ‘Look, I can be married to the most beautiful woman in the world, and I am. I can have the most beautiful little daughter in the world, and I have that. But I’m nothing if I can’t be me. If I can’t be true to myself, they don’t mean anything.’

“Since then, Kimberly has been, by far, the most accepting, and the easiest to talk to about it,” Jenner added.

Score one for Mr. West.

    I would say whether you agree with Bruce Jenner or not, Kanye gave Kim a solid piece of advice. You would have to walk in someone else’s shoes to truly relate to what another person is going through. Be true to you because that is the only person you will be with for your entire life time.
