The person with this concern

Updates on the situation.
We talked about what happened and he explained that he just had doubts about how I feel and if I was only sharing things with him because he asked me to do so, based on what he said, he wants to be part of my everyday life but he doesn’t want to feel like I don’t want him to or that when I’m sharing things with him I do it because he forced me to. To him sharing small details helps us feel closer despite the distance. He also stated that he would try and go easy on this matter because he does want this relationship to work. I’m not really sure but I thought maybe something happened in his previous relationship that made him decide to make something like this to become very important in the relationship.
We’ve been together for 2 years and we met more than I can count, even though his family home is in a different city than mine, he drives about 8 hours to come meet me.
I know I’m not responsible for his insecurities or any doubts he might have because I know that I’m not doing anything wrong or sketchy. I’m just very introverted and private and I throughout the years, I’ve built walls around me to protect my well-being. But when I met him and got to know him, I was ready to start letting him in, the only issue is that I can’t do it as quickly as he expected me to, I need time.
