I don't understand how your past love hurts her. Does she think you lived in a bubble before meeting her?
I agree that this does not bode well for the future if she has such an immature view (but I think you are a very mature person for your age!) and is so possessive that you can't have a past. The problem is not how you communicate, I am sure; it is how she listens (or refuses to listen).
She's a member here - maybe she can post about her issues with it?
