The former first lady has reached a breaking point.
Her psychological problems have gotten out of control.
Michelle Obama made a surprising admission about her mental problems.
Former US First Lady Michelle Obama has expressed in an interview with People published Wednesday that 2020 had a damaging effect on her mental health.
She blamed both the pandemic and the death of George Floyd for her struggles.
“That was during a time when a lot of hard stuff was going on,” she explains. “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.”
Michelle Obama isn’t helping the racial tensions that are still high since George Floyd’s death.
Minneapolis is bracing for the trial of Derek Chauvin, the former police officer who knelt on Floyd’s neck and has been charged with second degree murder.
A “police-free” autonomous zone has taken over blocks of Minneapolis.
“A militant-style group has taken over the blocks-long site, creating a hostile situation for authorities and protesters alike,” according to the New York Post.
Yet Michelle Obama centers the issue not around the current left-wing violence, but around her own personal feelings.
“Depression is understandable during these times. 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.” Michelle continued.
“This is what mental health is. You have highs and lows,” she says. “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.”
Many in Minneapolis have had their lives permanently destroyed by the BLM riots. But for Michelle Obama, the pressure is so great that the 57-year-old is feeling the need to retire.
She is one of the most privileged people in America but she’s still trying to make herself into a victim.
“I’ve been telling my daughters I’m moving toward retirement right now, [selectively] picking projects and chasing summer,” Mrs. Obama says. “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.”
It would be good for Barack and Michelle Obama to retire since currently, they are fanning the flames of tension and political violence in America.
