Memorable Quotes

“These stats aren’t from a recent betrayal. This could be something that happened decades ago. Your parent did something awful. The girlfriend or boyfriend who broke your heart in high school, whatever it is, that person may not know, care, even remember they may not even be alive. And here you are struggling. The good news is you could heal from all of it.” – Dr. Debi Silber

“While there are many very healthy ways to eat, when you’re healing from betrayal, you want to use healthy eating in your favor. You want to use it as almost looking at it like, will this food choice get me out of ICU? And you’re learning how to love yourself and nurture yourself, which is something that we absolutely do not do when we’re healing from betrayal.” – Dr. Debi Silber
