Being shy and not open is your personality. He needs to accept you for who you are as a person. You can't help it if you are shy, but if you would like to change, you can start by just saying what is on your mind. Be honest in who you are and don't hide your feelings. If you want to say something just say it. Some times I understand you probably would like to sit quietly and not say a word. But he wants you to communicate better. Its not easy for everyone to just start a conversation up. Some people it comes natural, but others may have trouble. But that's ok. That is who you are, you are shy. It takes time to be comfortable to open up. But one way is to begin by saying what is on your mind. Don't ever be embarrassed to say what you are thinking. Just speak your mind. If you have anymore question I will be happy to answer.
