Almost a year ago, "The Greatest Showman" premiered in theaters and became one of the most inspirational films I have ever seen. Prior, I was at a point in my life where I had many uncertainties about myself. I doubted my looks and what I could offer to the world.
Once I watched the film, I was inspired. It made me reevaluate all of my insecurities and grow to love them. Here are five quotes from "The Greatest Showman" to help remind you that you should express your originality!
Many of us seek validation from others, even from those who do not care about us. We tend to forget the ones who are rooting for us every step of the way. Whether it is your family, friends, or mentors, do not disregard them. Thank them for being your biggest fans.
