Self-blackmail and the importance of vulnerability: Guest – Dr. Pat Williams

Self-blackmail holds you hostage.

We are all familiar with movies which depict someone being blackmailed for an act they committed. We often don’t realize that we do the same thing to ourselves and hold so many secrets inside of us. The self-talk we create about any situation determines what we keep to ourselves based off of shame and guilt. When you self-blackmail you withhold peace, joy and happiness. Learning to let things go allows you to live your life to its fullest.

Life Coach, Dr. Pat Williams reviews his new book, Getting Naked: On Being Emotionally Transparent at the Right Time, the Right Place, and with the Right Person. This book will revolutionize your understanding of why, perhaps when you’ve been vulnerable in your past it didn’t work out the way you had imagined. He will help you understand ways to define who is safe, when is the right time and the right place for you to be transparent with the people around you. You may purchase his book at or below.
