Michelle Obama Reveals The Truth About 'Leaning In': 'That S**t Doesn't Work'

Michelle Obama weighs in on the idea of 'leaning in': 'That s--t doesn't work' - NY Daily News

"Tattoo it on my body!" one Twitter user wrote about Obama's words. "You don't have room to make mistakes", she said.

To combat that, the Duchess of Sussex should not be afraid to play a longer game.

"It did not really sink in that it was her", 11-year-old Emma said. I grew up where I trusted men to take care of me. "Love doesn't fix brokiness in that way, so you have to choose someone whos already pretty well formed".

According to several media outlets, Obama quickly apologised for swearing, telling the crowd: "I thought we were at home, y'all". So he was very focused and very self-aware. "I wanted my own identity so I wouldn't get lost in his journey". "So when I knew that this was real I did a lot on work on myself".

"And we can just sort of get this out of the way and I can be that supportive wife going, 'Aw honey, you tried.' OK, now let's go back to our lives as usual", she added. "Many people look at my marriage as #relationshipgoals". Although the girls spent their teenage years in the White House, Michelle points out that they still faced numerous same experiences she did growing up. So it's interesting to me, when people ask me 'how did you know how to be the first lady?' as if all my history just disappeared because sometimes that's what happens when you become the spouse of - you lose yourself in the title of spouse.

Speaking to author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie about her autobiography Becoming at Southbank Centre's Royal Festival Hall, Mrs Obama also recalled the controversy she caused when she touched the Queen on the back during another visit.

"My advice to young women is that you have to start by getting those demons out".

Michelle Obama tells London school she still has imposter syndrome

In a new interview for the January cover of Good Housekeeping, the former FLOTUS opened up about how she and daughter Malia connected over navigating the tricky waters of having a crush in school.

"The way she made us feel when she first came in 2015 for the United Kingdom launch of Let Girls Learn, we felt those same sparks again". I share that with you because we all have doubts in our abilities, about our power and what that power is. I've served on corporate boards, I've been at G summits, I've sat in at the UN.

"When I was younger, I often wondered whether this kind of obsessive thinking was unique to me and my girlfriends, but I realize now that it was something every girl feels", she adds.

What do you think of this? I'm not saying that there aren't talented people out there.

'And as I said then, you remind me of me and all the fears and all the challenges that you face.

It was a return trip for Obama - who is in London to promote her memoir Becoming - as she first visited the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson School in 2009 and has kept close ties with the school and nearby Mulberry School ever since.

"Of course your head is spinning because first of all I'm trying not to fall, which is a major thing that I think about in public", Obama said.
