The wisdom here is that some people don’t want to be known.
Not everyone reacts the same way you do to intimacy… whilst you may love being close to people and think that warmth, affection, understanding can bridge the gap, that you can be the one to open someone’s heart… the truth is people can only choose to open it themselves*
*and this is usually YEARS of work.
Don’t think that if you can just, just make him see that all will be well. With some people there’s no finish line, no paradise. The good news is, you can find your own. But it starts with you and doesn’t end with them.
