In brief: Mental Health

I am most curious what the four therapists diagnosed you with.
Did they have another personality trait or disorder or condition that they felt described you better?

In brief: Anxiety

Difficult to say but possibly you are conflict avoidant or not comfortable relating or being close to others.
Psychotherapy can be very helpful in understanding what is interferring. If you are withdrawing by choice you are probably feeling anxious to let others truly know you, thus the "personal mask". You probably need to learn how to let go and let yourself be vulnerable. Best wishes.
