When you love you give gifts of empathy and benefit of doubt. You understand that your partner is probably feeling hurt beneath anger. You try to understand and ask for help in understanding because you want to make it better.
When you are loved you receive gifts of empathy and benefit of doubt. You feel understood and appreciate empathy and efforts of your partner.
The more you are given, more you receive. The more you receive, more you want to give.
It becomes a lot easier than win thing.
