Giving Love vs Feeling and receiving Love

I listened to the teachings that Love is inside us, not that someone else sends it into us. I am able to give love and express it to my partner, but I have always struggled with actually feeling it being received from him and others. If these are one in the same thing, how come I can’t feel love when others are expressing it to me? Every time my partner expresses how he feels for me, I am sitting there wishing I could feel the same way, (and it’s not him because I feel the same with everyone, even kids) but I’ve never been able to feel this love being received, like there is a block. But then why can I give it and express it but can’t adsorb the love?
