Meme moment

Immediately following the BET Awards, the Internet immediately started making hilarious memes using Martin’s footage. Though they were all centered around the joy and appreciation of something unexpected occurring, they varied in the subject matter. Some of the memes focused on realizing that you had more money in your bank account then you expected. Others memes centered around getting an opportunity for something you didn’t realize you were qualified for. Nevertheless, they were all pretty hysterical and didn’t escape Martin’s notice. She instantly discovered that she had another meme-able moment and shared some of her favorites through her Instagram stories.

Roller coaster of emotions

But despite that young mogul having a great year career-wise (and meme-wise), Martin recently admitted that she has experienced a fair amount of struggle recent year. The Little actress took to her Instagram page to open up about the emotional rollercoaster she’s been on this year. “Appreciation post to God: I sometimes see these types of posts as corny but this is how I feel lol. 

This year has been a roller coaster. This year has been filled with crazy emotions and big blessings that I couldn’t even imagine me having. Moments from this year, I was in a dark place. A place that I didn’t think I was going to get out of. I thought I wasn’t good enough and I thought I needed to present myself in a way that was “perfect” when I didn’t need to. Putting so much pressure on myself. Fighting with myself” Martin admitted.

Dark emotions

The 14-year-old continued on to specify that she was only speaking on her personal experiences, rather than giving a blanket statement about all child actors. “This feeling had nothing to do with how child actors think. These were my own personal thoughts. The more I kept how I was feeling hidden, the more this dark emotion got bigger. I finally talked to my parents even tho they already knew how I was feeling. It made me feel better about myself. A sense of relief. I started praying more, talking more, and spending more time with the people I love” Martin continued.


Fortunately, the producer ended her statement on a high note, saying that she was feeling wonderful now and offered words of encouragement to her fans.”Now I’m feeling the best I’ve ever felt In a long time. Thank you, God, for hearing my prayers. Thank you, God, for blessing me with the greatest family and friends. I encourage everyone to speak their mind to anyone u trust. Even asking a random person “how are you?” Can mean something. Also, be yourself because no one can be like you, other than YOU. Okay, I’m done bye♥️ – MM” Martin wrote.
