Apparently, she is battling a lot of inner demons…

Though she always seems so up together and serious – that’s all she does – no true emotions ever come out, neither in her personal life. She stays put because she tries so hard to achieve and maintain that.
Former First Lady Michelle Obama admitted during an interview that just last year she struggled with a deep state of depression, which made her make a life changing move.
But, our real question is – besides giving statements, what do you do as a Former First Lady?
Clean the house and do the laundry – probably not.
It might be of political reasons. Or better yet to say – she’d desperate for all the attention!
While she was promoting her cooking show called “Waffles and Mochi,” she opened up about her feelings and the struggles with depression.
“That was during a time when a lot of hard stuff was going on,” she explained. “We had the continued killing of Black men at the hands of police. Just seeing the video of George Floyd, experiencing that eight minutes. That’s a lot to take on, not to mention being in the middle of a quarantine.”
“Depression is understandable during these times,” Michelle followed. “I needed to acknowledge what I was going through, because a lot of times we feel like we have to cover that part of ourselves up, that we always have to rise above and look as if we’re not paddling hard underneath the water.”
She kept on going, advising everyone who struggles with depression on mental health issues, that being open about it and not keeping it in yourself is the start to solve the problem.
“This is what mental health is. You have highs and lows,” Michelle proceeded. “What I have said to my daughters is that one of the things that is getting me through is that I’m old enough to know that things will get better.”
Afterwards, she continued to explain how she’s really looking forward to her and Barrack’s retirement.
“I’ve been telling my daughters I’m moving toward retirement right now, [selectively] picking projects and chasing summer,” she said. “Barack and I never want to experience winter again. We’re building the foundation for somebody else to continue the work so we can retire and be with each other — and Barack can golf too much, and I can tease him about golfing too much because he’s got nothing else to do.”
Michelle also discussed Donald Trump losing the 2020 presidential election, saying, “We breathe for a moment, but there’s still work to be done. That’s why Barack and I are focused on developing the next generation of leaders through the Obama Foundation … so that each year we step further out of the spotlight and make room for them.”
And she explained how swimming actually saved her from “drowning in depression” especially since the quarantine began.
Ironical, isn’t it?
“Over quarantine, I actually did teach myself how to be a better lap swimmer, because what I’m finding in my old age is that the high-impact stuff that I used to do, as I’m approaching 60, it just doesn’t work. So I thought, well, swimming is one of those low-impact, good cardio things,” she said. “I worked myself up to almost a mile of swimming laps. Now, can I do that right this second? No. But this summer, I’m getting back into the pool.”
