Why are we so hurtful to each other?

I take full responsibility for my thoughts and actions. I recently had a hurtful fight with someone I love. While the person said some very hurtful and mean comments my initial reaction was to say hurtful things back and ultimately I wanted to hurt the person but this time I took a step back and decided to stay silent. Putting blame on the other person only perpetuates harm and leaves me powerless. But choosing not to be hurtful empowers me.
