Playing EXCLUSIVE: Kim Kardashian 'Ready to Start Getting Back to Normal Life,' Robbery Put 'Things in Perspective' for Her

Kim Kardashian West is slowly but surely returning to public life.

The 36-year-old reality star has yet to make a statement on social media after her terrifying robbery in Paris, but made her first public appearance at her husband Kanye West's show in Los Angeles on Tuesday. Since then, she's quietly attended two more of Kanye's shows in L.A., and has returned to filming Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

"Kim is definitely ready to start getting back to her normal life, little by little," a source tells ET, though notes that she isn't exactly "craving the spotlight." "She's taking it day by day and isn't pushing it. It's been almost a month since the robbery happened and the break is something that she definitely needed."

The source says that time off after the scary incident has given Kim time to "unwind" and "be a normal person."

"She went through a very traumatic experience and it definitely put a lot of things in perspective for her," the source says. "She needed to take a step back and it really has been such a good thing for her. She really hasn't had a chance to spend that much quiet time with the kids [North and Saint] since each of them was born. This was the first time in years that she could just unwind and be a normal person. She is really happy she was able to do so."

The source shares that Kim will indeed talk about the robbery on KUWTK, but she'll be able to choose how much she wants to disclose. As executive producer of the hit E! show, she'll also be able to control final edits and what makes it on air.

On Tuesday, Kim was spotted getting ice cream with her good friend, Jonathan Cheban, in Beverly Hills, California, prior to attending Kanye's concert. The mother of two looked somber, going makeup-free and dressed casually in a white oversized hoodie and slippers.

Kim wore a simple wedding band on her left hand, a big change from the glitzy $4.5 million, 20-carat Lorraine Schwartz diamond engagement ring Kanye gave her that was stolen during the robbery.

KimĀ continued to keep a low-profile on Thursday at Kanye's third show in L.A. Surrounded by security, she was spotted backstage wearing a black baseball cap.

Earlier this week, ET exclusively sat down with the hotel concierge who was held at gunpoint alongside Kim. In his first on-camera interview since the incident, Abdulrahman said Kim "screamed like hell" during the robbery, and begged for her life.

"'Take my phone, take my phones. Don't hurt me, don't kill me,'" he said Kim told the thieves at the time. "Screaming, 'I have babies, I am a mom.' I think at that moment you can see a mom in distress."
