For me, it really depends on my relationship with the person and even so, it's a scary thing for me to speak directly from the heart about things I have been through and have caused me pain. To think that when I release those secrets there's a possibility I will remain suspect to hurt because I've made myself vulnerable is scary. I am now powerless and can be defeated. My friend wanted me to open up to them the other day , but I just can't bring myself to that place.

I have a hard time opening up to men. Much less so to women.1

It depends on who the person is. I tend to be more guarded with some people , but not so much with others. Regardless of who they are though, they have to earn my trust. I don't give it freely.
I open up gradually to people. If I feel they can't be trusted or I decide I don't really like their personality then I'll become more superficial with them.
I've made myself vulnerable ( which cost me) in the past by trusting certain people too quickly, or by going against my intuition about them. So now I open up if I feel comfortable to do so.2
