I fear I'm not enough

I fear I'm not enough. My ex fiance of 8 years was manipulative and looking back I know that no one can make you feel small unless you let them. But only recently did I realize that I was as damaged as I was, and I'm still trying to fix what got broken. I have an amazing guy who wants to be in my life now. But a crippling fear of not being enough, shame of myself and my wants and needs, and a fear of hurting someone emotionally because of those wants- even if they are logically valid- is making me slowly pull away from this man. I don't want to do that. He's done nothing but reassure me that I am enough, but I can't seem to push past this wall and believe it. I'm done doubting myself and my worth. But I don't know how to stop and move forward.
