Our expert says:
What can I say ? Tolerably well, I suppose. But it's you that's important now.
Some of us are as you describe yourself, and just don't like sharing much with others. That's just the way some of us are, it's not wrong to be like that.
If you've been hurt by others in the past, especially if this involved them somehow taking advantage of your opening to them, then your reluctance is understandable. It might not always be useful for you, and counselling might help you to get this into perspective, to be better able to decide who is worthy of trusting, and when, and when not.
But it is far from vital or essential for you to share our inner felings with anyone ( other than adoc or shrink when needed ) - its an American fashion to "share". Personally, I appreciate some splendid people who choose not to chare - that's their privilege.
Talk it out with yourself, if that works for you. I find that cats and dogs are also excellent listeners, always sympathetic, and rarely interrupt you !
