Betrayal has a lasting effect on anyone who has experienced it. From emotional distress to physical health issues, betrayal is a traumatic event that requires healing.

Luckily, we have more power over the healing process than we may realize. If we’re willing to put in the work, we don’t need to let our betrayal hold us back or stop us from moving on. 

How can we push past the “survival mode” that typically follows the disbelief of broken trust? Can we ever return to the way we were before being betrayed?

In this episode, holistic psychologist and Founder of The PBT Institute, Dr. Debi Silber shares how to truly heal from betrayal. 


Telling your broken heart to “get over it” is never going to work. You have to choose to heal.  -Dr. Debi Silber


3 Things You’ll Love About This Episode 

  • The common saying we need to stop believing:

    The idea that “time heals all wounds” simply isn’t true. Until we’ve actively dealt with our trauma, no amount of time will stop us from having a lack of trust or experiencing repeat betrayals in the future. 

  • What we need to be willing to let go of in order to heal:

    For many people, the story of our betrayal has become part of our identity. While this can bring us immediate benefits, like comfort from our support systems, if we genuinely want to move forward, we have to be willing to let go of that story once and for all. 

  • Why we need to be honest with ourselves:

    The key to healing lies in acknowledging what we’re doing to halt the process. If we’re filling our schedules to avoid being with our own thoughts, we need to be able to admit that to ourselves.
