Welcome to... The Puppet Show!

"Diminishing our integrity doesn't just chip away at our character; it chips away at our performance in life." -James McPartland

Do you feel like you're hiding behind a curtain at times, manipulating multiple versions of yourself to please others and avoid relational damage?


Here's a thought: If you can't be authentic, the relationship is already damaged! It's a facade.


At the heart of the solution, lies one word: INTEGRITY.


I came to learn the hard way that integrity is not just a concept; my word is who I am, my very essence. Nothing more, nothing less.


Diminishing our integrity doesn't just chip away at our character; it chips away at our performance in life.


Not honoring your word to yourself is a form of self-disintegration. It's like tearing down the very foundation of who you are.


If mastering integrity means telling the truth, then our quest must be to get brutally honest about every instance where we falter, starting with the lies we tell ourselves.


When you lie, you prioritize other people's perceptions over your own truth. It's a disservice to yourself, a betrayal, even.


And think about this... what if the very reason you struggle to trust that person you work with, or even your spouse -- is because you can't trust yourself either? They're just a mirror reflecting back at you.


It's time to step out from behind the curtain of the puppet show. Embrace your truth and live with unwavering integrity. I won't tell you it's easy, but I will tell you it's worth it.


Because in the end, that's all that really matters.
