Chapter 2: Keeping the Love Tank Full

Something in our nature cries out to be loved by another.

The need to feel loved is a primary human emotional need. Love is essential to our emotional health, without it, we will find functioning normally to be extremely difficult. Picture a “love tank” inside of you—when you feel loved, your love tank will be full and your attitude and mannerisms will reflect that. When you don’t feel loved, your love tank will be empty, and you will notice your relationship with your partner suffering.

When your love tank is full, you will create an emotional climate that makes it possible to discuss problems and resolve conflicts with your partner.
