How to break down emotional walls in a relationship?

My boyfriend is great, he's funny, kind, sweet, and respectful. I'm so thankful for him and glad he is in my life, but I have noticed that he is falling for me much faster than I am falling for him. He just recently said "i love you" and while it made me over the moon happy, I could not say the same back to him. I have a lot of walls put up and have had them there for so long, I don't know how to let that down. I am an extremely emotional person so my way of not being weepy all the time is to turn off my emotions and be cold hearted and hotheaded which I have been controlling very well in my life and relationships lately. I'm scared to fall in love, I'm scared to put my trust in someone's hands and I don't know how to change that. I feel so bad that internally I judge the petty things I don't like about my boyfriend so I can find a way to give myself a reason to push him away. He's so good to me, and don't get me wrong, I am good to him too but I don't want to internally be this way and I want to be able to say "i love you too". I can see myself loving him, but my fear is in the way.

  • Your fear will do you NO favours. If you really do love this guy then then do both yourselves a favour and open yourself up to him. Don't hide yourself away out of fear coz that's not really living. The only way around this is to just let go and trust that he will not break your heart. Because you will only end up breaking your own in the end
